Griffon is a steel roller coaster located at Busch Gardens Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. Griffon is themed after a half-lion/half-eagle mythological creature called a Griffon, known for diving on unsuspecting prey.
It was built by Bolliger & Mabillard and was the tallest and fastest Dive Coaster until it was surpassed by Valravn at Cedar Point in 2016. It is also the first to have multiple inversions and floorless trains.
