Kings Island announces important updates regarding the rest of the 2020 Season. Learn More.
Thrill-seekers have something to scream about when they visit Kings Island and head to Action Zone to challenge the world’s longest steel inverted roller coaster, Banshee.
With seven stomach-churning inversions, the 4,124-foot long Banshee also ties another steel inverted roller coaster record.
Themed to a wailing mythological messenger from the underworld with flowing white hair and gleaming eyes, Banshee features the following succession of breath-taking thrills: a 167-foot lift hill, 150-foot curved first drop, 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 miles per hour.
Celebrating its fifth anniversary season, Banshee recently gave its nine millionth ride since its debut on April 18, 2014.
Watch this video to take a 360 degree virtual ride on Banshee.
