Virginia Companies Seek Paths To Reopening Amid Pandemic

RELATED STORY: Busch Gardens set to reopen Aug. 6.

Reclining against the Williamsburg greenery, the 180-foot-tall steel serpent awaits anyone brave enough to test their mettle against it. Measuring 3,300 feet in length and boasting a top speed of 73 miles per hour, it shares the name of a Roman temple dedicated to the gods: Pantheon.

Advertised as America’s fastest multilaunch roller coaster, Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s newest attraction features zig-zag turns, camel-back hills, a “Top-Gun stall” and an outer-banked curve destined to give riders an exhilarating lift out of their seats.
