    Inversions Layout Hangtime Rattle Harness

    Banshee is a really good B&M invert. However I think I had my expectations way to high for it. Was expecting a top tier invert and got a mid to low tier invert. The vest restraints are bad and the ride has a very noticeable rattle. However Banshee's layout is fantastic. The ride also features some great inversions and some really good hangtime. The 2nd half of banshee after the zero g roll pulls some really good forces. I also found the 2nd half to be more snappy than the first half. Although Banshee wasn't as good as I was expecting. Its still an amazing inverted coaster.

    First Drop Inversions Intensity

    This may not have the whip of older inverts but honestly the insanity of this thing makes up for it. The drop absolutely flings you sideways and every inversion gives a mix of bone crushing positives and elite hangtime. The speed and intensity never let up on this thing and it's a super long ride. The rattle I also only felt on one of my 4 rides and it still wasn't even that bad. I wasn't sure what to expect going into a newer invert but I was absolutely pleasantly surprised.

    This is a top-tier B&M invert. Very intense, tons of inversions, smooth, and long. I really like this ride.

    This is a phenomenal coaster, my favorite coaster at the park, and my favorite B&M Inverted coaster. It's incredibly intense and has a wide variety of inversions that make for a spectacular ride. This ride is truly special.

    A thoroughly enjoyable and intense invert with huge drops and large inversions which also includes a slow JoJo roll

    Definitely a top tier invert. The ride hauls and keeps getting better as the ride progresses. The first drop is excellent for an invert. All of the inversions are very intense, with that pretzel knot, 2nd loop and ending helix packing in the most g's. You even get a unique hangtime with that final inversion. the ride also is very long and has a nice and sort of unique layout for an invert. The vests and rattle also don't bother me at all. Really the only thing stopping me from ranking this higher is that it doesn't have the snap of the older inverts, but for what it is it is an amazing ride.

    Intensity

    B&Ms always get better once broken in. I'm glad Banshee has broken in - all the reviews and comments themed to "boring and mild" are a chore, to say nothing of completely wrong. This is a well paced and super intense invert. The rolls are a needed break in the otherwise relentless positive G. The exit of the batwing and second loop are almost Schwarzkopf-like sustained. Harness doesn't especially bother me, though sitting on the brakes for extended time might get uncomfortable. During the ride itself, they allow moves other inverts with the standard restraints would simply not work. Especially the first drop, which is super whippy in the back of the train. Fills a hole in Kings Islands lineup very well.

    First Drop Layout Theming

    When I first rode Banshee in its debut year, it didn't do much for me. When I rode it again in 2019, I really liked it. I'm not sure what changed for me, but for some reason the elements provided me with more thrills. The long looping inversions are sweet. The twist near the end is great!

    First Drop Intensity Smoothness Harness

    This is my favorite invert. Has a gut punch of a drop, intense inversions with a nice slow roll mixed in, but the restraints get really tight near the end of the ride. Doesn’t take away from the ride experience too much.

    First Drop Inversions Intensity Harness

    Banshee is what gives me hope that B&M can make intense fast paced coasters again someday. This ride has a ridiculous amount of positive G forces. Not rough as some people say it is but the vests are not really comfortable.

    Capacity Fun Smoothness

    Excellent ride to be sure. One of the best. I don't think I like it quite as much as Raptor or Montu, but it is fantastic. It lets up a tiny bit towards the end, but that is both a good and bad thing. You go through the last twist inversion at a very slow pace--which is pretty cool. This isn't quite as aggressive or intense as a Batman, or the two above, and perhaps that is why it isn't my alltime favorite invert. It is liquid smooth, fast, well paced and just plain fun. Great ride for sure.

    Inversions Intensity Hangtime Rattle Harness

    This is an absolutely fantastic B&M invert. It feels a lot like an old scale B&M with it's foot numbing positives and excellent inversions. Plus that final inline twist delivers some of the best hangtime out there. The only cons are that I do not like the B&M vests restraints which this ride sadly has (these are by far the best B&M vests I've experienced however), and this ride does have a slight rattle which personally does not affect the ride at all but if you're sensitive to rattles, you'll notice it for sure. All around this is an absolutely amazing ride and I really hope B&M makes more inverts instead of things such as wings or dives

    A very forceful yet super fun ride. There was a tiny rattle but nothing that hindered my enjoyment of it. The twist at the end is nuts. Overall, a great invert and a must ride at Kings Island.

    Inversions Fun Layout

    Amazing B&M Invert one of my favorites that I have ridden. With a great 7 inversions this ride never gets boring and every foot of track is well placed. It is starting to show its age with a tad bit of rattle but its not bad enough to put it as a con. Dispatches move pretty quick so you should be able to get on quickly and maybe even have chances at re rides. The highlight is definitely the loop over the chainlift and is satisfying to look at. Banshee is an amazing B&M Invert and is a must do when you visit Kings Island.

    Good first drop with intense inversions but the thing about this ride is the fact it is flat out rough. It also has the vest for some reason.

    Inversions Fun Layout Rattle Harness

    This B&M Invert is great since it has 1. The Length (it's the longest of its kind) 2. The Inversions (the loop around the lift hill, the pretzel knot and the final inline twist are all highlights) and 3. It's a generally fun attraction. However, no ride is without its flaws, and this has some pretty noticeable ones. For one, it has a pretty bad rattle (this is a modern B&M Invert and I was surprised at how rattly it was) and 2. The Restraints. Granted they aren't as bad as some coasters with vests like X-Flight or Wild Eagle but they're still somewhat of a problem.

    First Drop Intensity Hangtime Rattle

    Super intense invert. Fun whip over the first drop in the back, but the rest of the ride is more drawn out, which is fine. Can be shaky at times, but provides great G's, as well as hangtime on the Zero G Roll and In-line twist.

    Inversions Smoothness Layout

    Banshee is my favorite B&M Invert just narrowly beating Montu. The layout is definitely the best of all the inverts and I found it to be incredibly smooth. I got 4 rides on this and didn’t feel a rattle once. I didn’t think it was overly intense like the earlier B&M inverts which is why I can understand why some don’t like it that much but to me this is the best for its superb layout, smooth ride experience, and semi intensity.

    Fun Smoothness Hangtime

    This is an odd one, as I feel it would have been better as a wing coaster. The drop and first few elements are fast but smooth, unlike the snappiness inverts are known for, and the elevated inversions later in the ride offer incredible hangtime.

    Inversions Nice surprise! Smoothness

    8.7 out of 10! I loved this coaster, there is only one better (Raptor) than this one. the first 3 opening inversions are top enjoyable moves.

    What we've all thought the Batman rides could be. First drop is actually a drop and the inversions are forceful and smooth.

    Solid ride with some great inversions. The final roll is wonderful. Very strong rattle and awful vest restraints preventing it from getting 4/5 stars

    Inversions Smoothness Layout Disappointing! Intensity

    Banshee is my least favorite invert. While an objectively good ride, I love inverts for their snap. Banshee has no snap, and it feels like it defeats the purpose of the model. A fun coaster, but too graceful for my taste, and pretty overhyped.
