MASON, OH (FOX19) -

Track work on Kings Island's Banshee roller coaster was completed Thursday morning. 

Track piece No. 100 was the final piece of track installed on the 4,124-foot long $24 million steel coaster.

It took the Adena Corp. 160 days to erect the ride after the first piece of track was delivered Aug. 16 to the park.

Kings Island said Banshee is the world's longest inverted roller coaster.

The ride will be ready when Kings Island opens April 18.
