It's very nice to see some track work starting to happen on at Kings Island, that shade of purple and shade of blue does work really nice together.

More vertical construction has taken place on Banshee, the turn around onto the lifthill is now up along with the station track and part of the breakrun.

Now this is seriously looking outstanding, I really do think this could be my new favourite coaster when I vist Kings Island next year. The videos look like the heartline roll and downward helix are taken at good speed, so should be very forceful, with some airtime on the final right turn back into the breakrun.

Not fully related but out of respect, the flags at the front of Kings Island have been at half mast today. (due to 9/11 12 years ago today)

I think that is a great thing that Kings Island have done there and is especially good considering the park was closed completely today with no-one around to see it.

That does look very nice indeed, I can easily picture the lifthill track in my head already. Also nice to see the first of the bigger supports going in now.
