We did not mention all the statistics during the announcement because statistics are not what make a roller coaster great; it's the ride experience it delivers that makes it great.

It's good to see me, isn't it? No need to respond! That was rhetorical. Under 30 days until Banshee makes its public debut! We can't wait for you to come out and experience this ride.

We have guests that are more excited about our live shows than our roller coasters, that visit the park specifically for the shows. For these guests, the Cirque Imagine announcement was as exciting as

Megan..

Because my ex's name was Megan..she would scream and shout all the time over stupid stuff to the point I wanted to bludgeon myself..

Banshee..scream you hear before you kick the bucket..seems fitting to me..

I wouldn't wish that name on anyone, but I had an ex who had more riders than Banshee probably has...

OK since we are going with a theme of psycho exes here I suggest Violet after my nutso ex best friend who misled me for 7 years thinking everything was fine in our friendship, talked me into getting an ugly tattoo then in October revealed she still hated me for things that happened 7 years ago. Things she blamed me for that in reality she caused. I ended the friendship when she said maybe some day she would forgive me. Ripped my heart out. I invested so much time and money into that friendship to help her and her son out financially only to be back stabbed. And with the purple-ish streaks in Banshee's hair it seems fitting to me.

I just realized something... guess I'm late to the party in observing this... but the station floor doesn't drop. It's a static, concrete loading station floor.

So, tell me.....

If they're gonna name this coaster, are they gonna name the other coasters too?

Or, unbeknownst to me, are the other coasters already named?

What is the name of little girl in blue who supposedly haunts KI? That would be fitting...

why would the floor need to drop?

There's no reason it would NEED to, but nearly all B&M Inverts have a floor that drops after the train is loaded and before it dispatches. Similar to what we have on Invertigo.

Fascinating. I didn't know that. Gatekeeper and Raptor don't have that though do they? I don't remember because I have only been up there twice over one weekend.

On most, maybe all inverts (Aerial Chase excluded) the floor drops. Not on Banshee. I think because of the incline of the seat your feet will be well above the floor...hoping so...cause my friend has long legs.
