Pantheon, Busch Garden Williamsburg's latest multi-launch roller coaster is getting closer to opening with two recent major milestones.

First, seen above, the park announced that the last track piece for Pantheon was put into place, meaning the ride is now full circuit.  Pantheon features 3,328 feet of track with two launch sections, featuring a top speed of 73 miles per hour.

The coaster's trains also have arrived and already have been installed on the track, and don't they look pretty!  Pantheon will utilize two trains, each with 5 cars of 4 passengers each.  The trains feature a colorful front piece that fits with the ride's theme within the Fiesta Italia section of the park.

The trains feature over the head restraints that do not block the riders' views at all, instead fitting snugly over their lap.  Pantheon features some extreme elements such as a large top hat, a heavily outward banked turn, a dive stall and a wave turn.

Pantheon is slated to open this Spring at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
