MASON, Ohio (WDTN) – Kings Island got an all important delivery Wednesday.

The seating vehicles for the new Banshee roller coaster arrived. Construction crews don’t let a little snow get in their way of making sure you have a smooth ride on the coaster this summer.

The Banshee will be the world’s longest inverted coaster when complete. It is 4,124 feet long with seven inversions and speeds up to 68 miles per hour.

The $24 million ride is scheduled to make its debut April 18. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
