Hopefully they solve the vest-tightening with these trains!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I really couldn't be any more excited right now.

The inverted coaster is one of my favorite coaster types, and it's been way too long since one has been built in the US. This layout looks really unique and the ride looks absolutely massive (did anyone catch the height of the ride)?

I always thought that inverts maintained their B&M smoothness longer than all of their other coasters, so this ride should be completely awesome for decades. I'm absolutely making a trip to Kings Island this year and I'm thrilled to see the invert come back to the US!

:cry:

Nevertheless, it's another B&M Inverted Coaster in the States, and that makes this a success.
Been you to have any spike, man?

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Banshee looks awesome! I'm so glad to see a new B&M invert in the US! :b

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

I may sound stupid asking this, but I'm going to anyways, what is the "carousel" element they talked about at the end of the ride description?

Not sure about the new restraints. Most B&M coasters are so smooth that I never have problems with their standard OTSR's, but the vest restraints can be a bit uncomfortable when they tighten.
But anyway, wow! That layout looks awesome! Also not too sure about the inline twist but who cares - the first drop and the batwing look great!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!
