This page is dedicated to consolidating all of the available information regarding Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s new-for-2020 Intamin multi-launch roller coaster, Pantheon.
Pantheon is a new Roman-god-themed, Intamin-made, steel roller coaster which is slated to open in the Spring of 2020. Notable features of the ride include four launch experiences (three forward, one backwards), a fast-track switch which will change the layout of the coaster while the train is in motion, a 180 foot, beyond vertical dive down towards the park’s the Rhine River, a handful of outer-banked airtime hills, a wall stall, and two inversions—a zero-G winder and an inverted airtime hill.
Colors: Gold Track & Silver Supports (?) (Working to confirm)

First up, we have the official Pantheon layout image provided by Busch Gardens Williamsburg. It doesn’t provide much in the way of details, but likely does help people understand the relative height of a lot of the elements involved.
We may be a bit bias here, but we think our layout map based on the Project 2020 schematics we leaked back in March is still far more useful than the park-provided one above. Hence, we’re including our depiction below, followed by a key detailing everything you’re looking at.
Along the coaster’s layout….
Blue sections are your normal, everyday coaster track
Green track segments are launches
Orange areas are brakes
Black dots are coaster footers
Gray lines are the attraction’s supports
In the entry area for the ride…
Black rectangles are buildings
Khaki areas are guest pathways
Brown sections are ramps/bridges
Tan represents the attraction’s queue
