MASON, Ohio – Track work on the longest inverted roller coaster in the world, “Banshee,” was completed Thursday at Kings Island. Track piece #100 was the final piece of track installed on the 4,124-foot long $24 million steel coaster, being lowered into place by workmen at 10:04 a.m. It took the Adena Corporation a total of 160 days to erect the ride after the first piece of track was delivered to the 364-acre amusement and waterpark August 16, 2013. Banshee will make its highly-anticipated debut April 18 when Kings Island opens for the 2014 season.
