Banshee gave thrill-seekers something to scream about when the world’s longest steel inverted roller coaster opened in 2014 at Kings Island.
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.
