That support looks a bit weird with not being symmetrical. Either both supports are vertical or leaning slightly, not a mix of both! The track isn't even in the middle of the 2 supports!

Pretty sharp transition into that lift hill! Usually it's a lot more rounded and smoother.

The lifthill is now up, and looks epic, and very tall.

That really does look good! Again, it looks a pretty sharp transition at the top there which should mean fun.

Wow, that looks steep! Looks like you get pretty close to the ground as well which'll be an amazing footchopper.

Here are some pictures from The Great Ohio Coaster Club's facebook like page of the construction of Banshee.

Now I am pretty certain that this next picture of Banshee is a kind of rollercoaster porn.
