    Project 2020 (MMXX): Pantheon

    BGW has set themselves up pretty with this “Garden of the Gods” thing so that they can just do normal landscaping/gardening/etc. rather than anything super custom and intricate and point to that as the theme of the ride.

    Did I miss the animated POV coming out (beyond the unfinished/leaked vimeo one) or did they just never release it? We’re at the point now where we are probably closer to getting a real POV than we are to when it was first announced.

    Project 2020 (MMXX): Pantheon

    I will add that the Reddit user who “discovered” it literally just created their account today, and my first thought was that it could be BGW doing some kind of viral marketing thing pretending to just be somebody “finding” it

    Project 2020 (MMXX): Pantheon

    Somebody on Reddit just posted a link to what looks like an official POV The interesting thing is the video was uploaded 3 months ago and somehow nobody found it until now.

    Quite frankly I only know what Pantheon is because of this coaster. I would have assumed it was the same thing as Parthenon before this year.

    Project 2021: Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    Personally I’m not necessarily happy with what we’re all expecting here but I could have lived with it if it at least launched backwards or something. The biggest bummer to me is having a 300+’ drop in the park where you’re not going to see anything except the sky, that just seems like a...

    Project 2021: Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    Here’s something I threw together quickly to show the unlikelihood of a top hat. TTD/KK/RF are all ROUGHLY 100’ +/- wide at the top hat. I illustrated that here with the track coming straight out from the fenced-in area, with red showing how far out of the limits of disturbance the top hat...

    Project 2021: Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    I stand corrected. I’ve been playing around just to see if a top hat is even possible (someone earlier mentioned the high point clearing being the size of TTD/KK) and I’m really not sure it is. Even if the clearing is the correct size overall, if you run the track parallel to the fenced in...

    Something else to note was the leaked station plan clearly showed full 90-degree turns into and out of the station - these could still match up with the concrete pads but that transition would be unnecessarily awkward compared to what Zachary drew.

    Project 2021: Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    I’m trying to come up with an argument against it and I really can’t. The fenced-in straight section extending west past the station and the placement of the concrete pads are really hard to explain around in any fashion other than what you drew. I will say the possibility definitely exists...

    Project 2021: Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    Is this oriented to North? If so it looks to me like the track does a 180 curve south out of the station towards the final brake run in the opposite direction from the original leaked station plan. Of course, that is also assuming that the direction of travel from that same plan is the same...

    Project 2021: Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    A ride that’s never been seen before can really throw you for a loop on a set of plans like this. I remember when Steel Curtain’s plans leaked last year I couldn’t make heads or tails of them until the official announcement.

    Project 2021: Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    I actually looked this up the other day because I was curious, and for Pantheon we got the full layout plan in early February. That is compared to the RPA impact plan (the current most recent step for 2021), which we got in August of 2018 for Pantheon but in October of 2019 for 2021. Point...

    Project 2021: Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    I wouldn’t rule this out. It’s been done before (Wicked at Lagoon), it’s clearly a part of the Falcon’s Fury concept or whatever, and it’s one of the only ways I can envision BGW’s coaster working without a straight, flat launch directly into a top hat.
