A train on the new record-breaking Banshee roller coaster at Kings Island goes through a loop encircling the lift hill during a test run.

The world’s longest inverted roller coaster at 4,124 feet will send riders screaming through seven stomach-churning inversions at speeds up to 68 mph.

Themed to a wailing mythological messenger from the underworld with flowing white hair and gleaming eyes, the $24 million coaster will make its highly-anticipated public debut April 18, when Kings Island opens for the 2014 season.
