It's nice to see the construction of Banshee not being servilely affected by the snow, remembering last year GateKeeper's construction at Cedar Point was haltered for a bit, but that was probably also down to the winds from Lake Erie.
Anyway here is a picture from Kings Island's Twitter account of the the entrance to the batwing.
