Gone, but not forgotten.
It's been 10 years since the last time we were able to ride at the speed of fright: Busch Gardens Williamsburg's iconic Big Bad Wolf roller coaster shut down for good on September 7, 2009.
Developed by Arrow Dynamics, the Big Bad Wolf had thrilled park guests for a quarter-century. In fact, the 2009 season at Busch Gardens began with the park celebrating the Wolf's 25-year milestone.
The ride, with its sleek red track and suspended black cars, had become one of the highlight attractions at Busch Gardens, perhaps second only to the Loch Ness Monster. Riders would be steered through a Bavarian village, narrowly missing buildings before finally taking a final steep, 100-foot drop down to the park's Rhine River.
