World’s Longest Inverted Roller Coaster!

The world’s longest inverted roller coaster, “Banshee,” opens in April of 2014 at Kings Island. The first female-inspired thrill ride at a Cedar Fair Entertainment amusement park, Banshee will send riders screaming through 4124.1 feet of track and seven mind-bending inversions at speeds up to 68 miles per hour!

The ride layout is specially designed for Kings Island. Elements will include Curved Drop, Dive Loop, Looping interacting with the lift, Zero-G-Roll, Batwing, Outside Loop, Spiral, In-Line-Roll, and Carousel.
