JAMES CITY-Busch Gardens Williamsburg released the date of the opening of Pantheon, the theme park’s newest roller coaster.
Pantheon, which is considered the world’s fastest multi-launch coaster, will open in March 2022. The new roller coaster features two inversions, four launches, five air-time hills, a 95 degree drop, a height of 180 feet, and a record-breaking speed of 73 miles per hour.
The new ride incorporates five mighty gods, including Pluto, Mercury, Jupiter, Minerva, and Neptune, with an aspect of the track reflecting each of their respective powers.
“Pantheon will be an incredible addition to our world class coaster lineup, and showcase our dedication to bringing innovative, exciting new rides to the park,” said Busch Gardens Williamsburg President, Kevin Lembke, in a release.
“As with so many others, we faced unprecedented challenges over the past two years, resulting in delays to the scheduled opening. We are so grateful for the excitement and patience of our guests, as the March 2022 opening of Pantheon marks an exciting new page in the story of Busch Gardens.”
