WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY) – A newly unveiled rendering of Busch Garden’s Pantheon roller coaster shows off an exciting look into what guests can expect as it gets closer to launch

On Tuesday, Busch Gardens posted a new photo as a way to tease the upcoming roller coaster opening next year. In the background, the image shows smoke or perhaps clouds that take the shape of three Roman gods.

Surrounded in trees, the golden tracks of Pantheon could be seen slithering its way through multiple curves and drops around the park.

According to Busch Gardens, Pantheon represents “the might of five Roman gods”: Minerva, Mercury, Neptune, Jupiter and Pluto.

The new coaster, launching in 2020, will feature 15 airtime hills, a record breaking 95-degree drop, four different launches, and a top speed of 72.5 mph.

Visitors will find Pantheon in Festa Italia.
