^BGT is heavily rumored to get that Screamin Swing next year which is one of the best flats we could ask for.

My only gripe with Pantheon is the lack of trees. Almost every ride at this park takes advantage of the terrain and trees and this feels weird just being a flat open plot, so hopefully some trees go in that infield.

I know more about donkeys than women!

I agree, at the moment the area looks very plain, but I have to imagine there will be some trees and landscaping. It is still a construction zone there after all

It stared out as a pasture for the Clydesdales, so, it was pretty bare to begin with. I'd like to see some trees and nice theming there, too.
