Pantheon Construction Photos From Busch Gardens Williamsburg
Busch Gardens Williamsburg will debut Pantheon, a record-breaking multi-launch coaster in 2020. Featuring a total of four launches, this coaster located in the park’s Festa Italia village will reach a top speed of 72.5 mph, making it the fastest multi-launch coaster in North America.
Here’s an up close look at the record breaking coaster. So far, the first launch, first inversion, and first turn have all been installed.
Supports for the spike have been lifted into place. Track will later be attached to the supports.
This is the fourth consecutive year of new attractions and follows the 2019 Finnegan’s Flyer, “Screamin’ Swing”.
“Busch Gardens has a history of opening new attractions to thrill guests with exceptional experiences,” said Robert Ulrich, president of American Coaster Enthusiasts.
The 2020 opening of Pantheon will headline another exciting season at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, which has been named the “World’s Most Beautiful Theme Park” by the National Amusement Park Historical Association for 29 consecutive years and one of 2019 Best Amusement Parks by USA Today 10BEST. From its thrilling roller coasters, world-class dining options, and kid-friendly attractions, Busch Gardens offers fun for the whole family.
