Banshee is a Bolliger & Mabillard inverted roller coaster located at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio. The ride is open and is the park's 14th coaster.

To build Banshee the park removed Son of Beast, the former wooden hyper roller coaster at the park, before the 2013 season started. Throughout that season, the park began hinting at its new attraction for 2014. On August 8, 2013, King's Island announced Banshee.

Elements

Dive Loop
Vertical Loop
Zero-G Roll
Pretzel Knot
Vertical Loop
In-line roll

Banshee begins by turning out of the station. Then the train makes its climb up the lift hill. The train then falls down the curved drop, and enters the dive loop. Its next inversion, the vertical loop, wraps around the lift hill. Immediately following this, the train enters a zero-g roll. Then comes the pretzel knot, another vertical loop, a spiral, an in-line roll, then a helix. Shortly following is the brake run.
