It was a bone-chilling 4 degrees on this day five years ago (January 23, 2014) when the final track piece for the Banshee roller coaster was lowered into place.
Track piece No. 100 was the final piece of track installed on the 4,124-foot long steel coaster.
It took the Adena Corp. 160 days to erect the ride after the first piece of track was delivered to Kings Island on August 16, 2013.
The coaster was manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard Consulting Engineers Inc. The Swiss firm also created the tallest and fastest roller coaster at Kings Island, Diamondback, which opened in 2009.
With speeds up to 68 mph, Banshee became the fastest Bolliger & Mabillard coaster in the nation when it debuted April 18, 2014.
