Busch Gardens Williamsburg announced the fastest multi-launch coaster in North America opens in 2020. Here’s what we know about Pantheon at Busch Gardens.
Today, Busch Gardens broke ground on their latest project with details on the newest roller coaster heading to the Virginia theme park.
Pantheon includes forward and backward launches, two inversions and a 95-degree drop. If that isn’t thrilling enough, Pantheon will climb to 180 feet above ground and reach maximum speeds up 72mph.

Larry Giles, Senior Director, Design & Engineering states, Pantheon is going to be non-stop action for riders. We’ve designed it so that the experience is changing all the time and will keep riders wondering what’s next, and adds, multiple launches, speed changes, a sharp drop and backwards acceleration are just a few of Pantheon’s one-of-a kind traits.
We’re excited to see the progress on this new addition to the park, which is the fourth consecutive year of major additions to Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
