BGW Fans the real MVPs here.

 

Absolutely mental - 4 launches, 300ft odd drop, airtime. Packs so much into what is a reasonably short layout in fairness.

 

For those who can't be bothered to go through the whole thing...

(launch 1 in section 3, then the remaining 3 are semi shuttle in style in section 9, and also has an airtime hill in it)

 

This is very much like Parc Asterix's Intamin coming in 2021, but more about size than inversions and airtime I think.

 

Still, MENTAL

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.

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"
