Banshee Construction in Final Stretch

The last two pieces of Kings Island’s Banshee coaster arrived at the park yesterday—meaning that construction of the 4,124-foot-long B&M inverted coaster is nearing completion. In just a few months, riders will be speeding along the track at speeds of up to 68 mph.

The sections of track were delivered from Clermont Steel Fabricators in Batavia, Ohio. The park also shared a video of the truckload leaving the facility and arriving onsite.

The coaster is expected to open in April.
