This roller coaster is currently under development and construction at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. It is most likely opening in 2021, and is likely an Intamin product. Current plans indicate that the coaster could reach heights of 355 feet, and will be a shuttle/giga LSM roller coaster. It will also re-use Drachen Fire's station, which closed in 1998.

Design[edit | edit source]

Elements

Documents filed by the park show a massive shuttle coaster design that reaches 355 feet above ground. If the coaster does, it will become the eighth giga coaster in the world and possibly the tallest too. It is likely to use LSM motors to reach its maximum speed (currently unknown) and will likely be Intamin-built. The plans also call for the coaster to re-use the station for Drachen Fire, an Arrow Dynamics looping coaster which closed in 1998 after years of plummeting guest satisfaction.

Trains[edit | edit source]

2 trains with 5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 20 riders per train.
