“Construction crews have installed the first piece of track on the new Banshee roller coaster at Kings Island. Banshee opens in April 2014 and will be the world’s longest inverted roller coaster at 4,124 feet. Riders will scream their way through seven inversions at speeds up to 68 miles per hour.  The ride layout for Banshee is specially designed for Kings Island. Elements include a Curved Drop, Dive Loop, Looping interacting with the 167-foot tall lift hill, Zero-G-Roll, Batwing, Outside Loop, Spiral, In-Line-Roll, and Carousel. Kings Island is open to the public this weekend, August 30 through September 2.”
