Busch Gardens Williamsburg has announced that the record-breaking new roller coaster, Pantheon, will now open in March 2022.
Originally planned to open in 2020 before being delayed due to COVID-19, the coaster features two inversions, four launches, five air-time hills, a 95-degree drop, a height of 180 feet, and a record-breaking top speed of 73 miles per hour.
Pantheon incorporates five mighty gods, including Pluto, Mercury, Jupiter, Minerva, and Neptune, with an aspect of the coaster 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 Kevin Lembke, park president. “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.”
