Pantheon Opening March 2022 at Busch Gardens Williamsburg
Busch Gardens Williamsburg has announced that their record-breaking new “Pantheon” roller coaster, will officially open March of 2022.
Pantheon was originally planned to open in 2020, but was delayed along with many other new attractions in the SeaWorld chain of parks. The coaster features two inversions, four launches, five air-time hills, a 95 degree drop, a height of 180 feet, as well as a record breaking top speed of 73 miles per hour.
This all-new coaster incorporates five mighty gods into its theme, including Pluto, Mercury, Jupiter, Minerva, and Neptune, with an aspect of the track reflecting 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 park President, Kevin Lembke. “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.”
