Kings Island 2014 Roller Coaster Layout

Kings Island 2014 Roller Coaster Layout

Blueprints of the Kings Island 2014 roller coaster layout have made their way onto the internet a full week before the official announcement from the park. Spoiler alert: Kings Island has already started construction on their new B&M inverted coaster, likely named "Banshee." The roller coaster is being teased as a world-record breaker, meaning it will probably be the tallest, fastest, or longest inverted coaster and possibly even have eight inversions, the most in North America. The color scheme will most likely be blue and silver. Some of the Kings Island 2014 blueprints are pictured below. Banshee's layout looks something like this:

  1. Lift hill threaded through the vertical loop
  2. Right side curving drop
  3. Dive loop
  4. Vertical loop around the lift hill
  5. Zero-g roll
  6. Overbanked turn
  7. Batwing element (2 inversions)
  8. Vertical loop number two
  9. Turnaround
  10. Another barrel roll
  11. Helix
  12. Flatspin/corksrew into the final brakes

If you look closely at the blueprints you can see the footers of two defunct roller coasters: Son of Beast, where Banshee is being built, and the old stand-up coaster King Cobra. As an added bonus, here's an overhead picture of Adventure Express' layout.
