MASON, OH (FOX19) - Former Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle and Pro Football Hall of Fame member Anthony Munoz and students from the Anthony Munoz Foundation Service Challenge program were the first official riders on the Banshee at Kings Island.

The new record-breaking Banshee roller coaster at Kings Island opened to the public on Friday as the park opened for the 2014 season.

The Service Challenge program winners were chosen from Carlisle High School and Talawanda High School

The world's longest inverted roller coaster sends riders screaming through 4,124 feet of track and seven stomach-churning inversions at speeds up to 68 mph.
