Pantheon, the new Intamin launch coaster at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, will open officially on March 25, the park announced today.
Themed to Roman gods Pluto, Mercury, Jupiter, Minerva, and Neptune, Pantheon will be the park's eighth coaster and the world's fastest multi-launch coaster, reaching a top speed of 73 mph. The 3,328-foot coaster will stand 180 feet tall and feature a 95-degree drop as well as four launches.
"The opening of Pantheon has been much anticipated, and we are thrilled to add such an innovative attraction to our thrill ride portfolio," Busch Gardens Williamsburg Park President Kevin Lembke said. "With multiple launches, a beyond vertical drop, speed changes and other unique ride components, this coaster creates an unforgettable ride experience."
