World's Tallest & Fastest Wing Coaster


The $23 million steel coaster, “The Bat”, will set a new world’s record as the tallest and fastest wing coaster in the United States and will turn riders upside down a total of six times in two and one-half minutes!

The new attraction was designed exclusively for Kings Island and includes the following succession of breath-taking thrills that have never been incorporated into a wing coaster before: 199-foot high lift hill and drop of 183 feet at a 55-degree angle, two vertical loops, two boomerang turns, and a 360-degree double helix turn at the end, all at speeds exceeding 70 miles per hour. Rides will swoop and dive as they travel around the 3,806 feet of track. Ride time is 2-minutes and 14-seconds.

The Bat is unique among roller coasters because riders are seated on “wings” off to the sides of the coaster track. Three, seven-car trains will accommodate 1700 riders per hour..
