MASON, Ohio (Perry Schaible) -- Kings Island debuts its brand-new world record setting roller coaster, the Banshee. Perry Schaible was one of the very first riders on board the world's longest inverted roller coaster Thursday morning.
The Banshee screams at speeds up to 68 miles per hour along 4,124 feet of track. There are seven inversions in the two-and-a-half minute ride.
Kings Island officially opens Friday but a few hundred roller coaster enthusiasts from 28 states and Canada were invited for an early ride Thursday.
