I worry about the pacing on this and the Parc Asterix ride. Taron and Helix (and potentially the new Finnish coaster) is they build up and up and they have a really good flow. I don't really like the slowing to a stop then falling back down feeling.

So this was officially announced a little while back; slight differences to what was posted previously:

 

pantheon-diagram.ashx?version=1_20190730

 

 

https://buschgardens.com/williamsburg/roller-coasters/pantheon/

 

Key stats:

3 launches (including swing launch)

Maximum speed of 72mph

95 degree drop

Maximum height of 178ft

2 inversions

 

True testament to how much roller coaster engineering has developed recently that rides like this are possible and becoming more of the norm.

*blows cobwebs

 

Trains are now on track for Pantheon. So guessing that translates into expecting hype building footage of the coaster testing real soon.

 

It has also been confirmed (well a while back actually) that this will indeed break Tarons record as the fastest multi launch coaster in the world.

 

It's quite amazing really how forgotten this coaster has been amongst the mix of new for 2021 coasters especially compared to the other two major new intamin coasters Kondaa and Velocicoaster. This looks to be a terrific coaster for the park and looks to give them that "stand out coaster"

And we finally have some testing footage!!

 

I personally feel of this and Velocicoaster, this looks to be the more thrilling of the two. Velocicoaster ofcourse looks to be the overall best experience when theming and all that stuff is factored in, but this certainly looks to have the thrill factor of the two with that spike,top hat and outer bank turn plus the high speed turns after the top hat and indeed between the outer bank and stall.

 

Another terrific looking Intamin

Its good to see the return of the Intamin, I just hope they are somewhat reliable. Hagrids looks amazing, but seemed like a never ending nightmare for Universal.

Both Pantheon and Velocicoaster look like top tier rides. I do think Walibi Belgium's mega coaster looks better than both tbh. But all are probably going to be top tier rides, when they are open anyway.
