Billed as the "world's first all-indoor straddle coaster" this new roller coaster occupies the former Curse of the DarKastle show building in Germany at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

King Ludwig's abandoned fortress resurfaces as strange weather patterns have been recorded near the cursed castle grounds. Only the bravest souls will embark on snowmobiles in this dark expedition to discover the mysterious phenomenon.

DarKoaster is a family-friendly dark ride with roller coaster trains that resemble snowmobiles. Once on board, riders will experience four launches across the 2,454-foot-long roller coaster, as they race through total darkness while changing directions to avoid the elements.
