Banshee Pieces Arrive at Kings Island

© Kings Island
Kings Island's Vice President and General Manager, Greg Scheid shared this photo of the first pieces of Banshee being delivered to the work site.  The brilliant blue support pieces appear to be a part of the transfer track area, located adjacent to the ride's station and brake area.

The massive B&M inverted coaster should see vertical construction sooner than later, which means that the rest of the season will be great for watching it grow!  Traditionally B&M rides are built in track order, starting with the station/transfer then moving forward.  That means the ride's 167 foot tall lift hill could be one of the first things we get to see go up on the park's live webcam!
