Banshee was the longest inverted roller coaster in the world at 4,124 feet when it opened in 2014. It includes seven inversions and, interestingly, reaches its top speed of 68 miles per hour in the middle of the ride’s course, not at the bottom of the 150 foot first drop.

The striking blue supports hold magenta track – fitting for the ride’s supernatural theme.  Banshee was the park’s largest ever investment at $24 million, beating out 2009’s B&M hyper coaster Diamondback ($22 million), and previous owner Paramount’s additions, Son of Beast and TOMB RAIDER: The Ride (now both defunct, neither lasting a full decade – and tragically so at $20 million a piece).

The ride’s station is in the form of an Irish cathedral with the loading track passing through the church’s shattered stained glass windows.
