An Arrow Dynamics suspended coaster built in 1984, Big Bad Wolf features tight turns and twists through and above a small Bavarian village built as a part of the ride's theming. Located in the Rhinefield, Germany section of the park, Big Bad Wolf's layout includes 2 lift hills. The first puts the trains twisting through the village, and the second lift drops riders down a steep plunge swinging over the Rhine River.

Dexter finds this style of coaster rather tame and generally lacking in thrills. However the drop after the second lift, which includes some sprayed mist as the ride drops through the trees, gives some nice speed and some nice banking over the water at the bottom.
