MASON, OH (FOX19) - Construction of the world's longest inverted roller coaster, "Banshee," continues to move forward in the snow and cold at Kings Island.

Work crews have completed the following track elements on Banshee: lift hill, curved drop, dive loop, loop interacting with the lift and zero-G-roll.

The construction of the ride's station is also underway.

Riders on Banshee will ride through 4,124 feet of track and seven inversions at speeds up to 68 mph when the $24 million ride debuts in April 2014.
