Where you sit on one Kings Island’s 16 roller coasters will affect your ride experience. To get the most thrilling ride on Banshee, sit in the front row! You’ll be able to stare the spectacular 150-foot curved first drop right in the eyes.
As you approach the top of the 167-foot lift hill, the front of the train will slowly creep over the hill for a moment of anticipation and a Banshee shriek before plunging your way down through the first drop, followed by a dive loop, a vertical loop encircling the lift hill, a zero-gravity-roll, a pair of batwing inversions, outside loop, spiral, in-line roll and carousel, all at speeds up to 68 mph on the world’s longest steel inverted roller coaster.
The coaster is manufactured by Bolliger and Mabillard, or B&M. The Swiss firm also created the tallest and fastest roller coaster at Kings Island, Diamondback, which opened in 2009.
