Busch Gardens' Big Bad Wolf closed at the end of its 25th season. The park announced that the ride had reached the end of its serviceable life and would be retired in September 2009.
Big Bad Wolf is best known for its finale where the track drops over the edge of a 99-foot cliff and descends into a tight turn over the Rhine River. During the first part of this Arrow-Huss suspended coaster the track travels through a Bavarian Village with the cars swinging to narrowly miss the buildings at speeds approaching 50 mph.
