Busch Gardens needs a Flying Coaster

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this or if it's been mentioned before but I thought this was kinda interesting:

If this ride is built, it will continue a pattern that Busch Gardens has kept up with its roller coasters since 1976. (Excluding kiddie coasters Das Kätschen and Grover's Alpine Express) This pattern being, alternating the installation of roller coasters with or without inversions. Feel free to check me on this.

1976: Die Wildkatze (0)
1978: Loch Ness Monster (2)
1984: Big Bad Wolf (0)
1992: Drachen Fire (6)
1996: Wilde Maus (0)
1997: Alpengeist (6)
1999: Apollo's Chariot (0)
2007: Griffon (2)
2012: Verbolten (0)
2015: Tempesto (1)
2017: InvadR (0)
2021: Pantheon (2)
2022: Drachen Spire? (Planned to have 0)

Can we expect the next coaster after the Festhaus Park Giga Coaster to have inversions?

There's a building under the short spike near the station that acts as the queue entrance and exit for the coaster. That building features the same Drachen Fire carved wooden accents I referenced yesterday. More importantly though, the roof of that building has been "smashed" through by the coaster track for the spike—the track is essentially sunken down into the damaged roof—theoretically to invoke a dragon flying recklessly through a quiet German village. If realized, it should be a VERY cool entryway for the coaster.

That’s absolutely mental

I genuinely wonder if this coaster will ever come to fruition considering the current events in the world. And if it does, when?

I would expect it in 2022. As long as next season the park gets to be open next year for a good amount of time at a high enough capacity. That's really the biggest question. Even then the park might decide it's a good idea to go into 2022, which will hopefully be the first year with no COVID restrictions, with two new attention grabbing coasters.
