Can anyone elaborate on Banshee's trims? I never noticed any and I heard they were removed. Where were they at?

On the descent just after the Zero-G Roll on the approach to the Pretzel Loop.

It is/was right here. I believe it was used only if the train was going through that part of the ride at above a certain speed. I would assume Orion's will do the same. I never felt the trim on Banshee.

I don’t think it’s always bad:

The Beast

The Bat

The Vortex

...but some make it sound sound like English isn’t your first language

The Banshee 

The Son of Beast

The Orion

The Invertigo

Of course Orion and Invertigo would use “Thee” as they begin with vowels.  :P

If Shakespeare wrote them, yes.

I meant the pronunciation not spelling.  Wasn’t sure I remembered how to enter “thē”.  Thuh vs Thee.  :lol:

Did they completely take it out? I've never felt or seen it.

It has been taken out. They were magnetic ones I believe. See KI's official 2014 POV to see it. That's why there's a random concrete pad underneath; to use a lift for maintenance.

My physician has diagnosed me with “the Invertigo.”

Anyone seen this guys instagram? Talk about exclusive access and knowledge.  

I posted it here as I do think it’s tied into Orion construction as there may be some of our track here and where it came from.

Our track came from Clermont Steel Fabricators in Batavia. Not that far from KI.

Exactly.

There must be a miscommunication on my part, because I posted that profile link for you all to check out (https://instagram.com/rollercoasterweldindad_101715?igshid=k17ac7yoc1ya) for the sole purpose that....

it is an account of a guy who works at Clermont Steel and is posting pictures of the B&M track that he is personally working on along with other shots from inside the facitily.

Only 28 more sections of track to install definitely think they will be done by middle to end of next week

I must admit that the posts I look forward to the most in this forum are the pictures that Waltny provides.  In many ways these are better than the pictures the park provides through their blog posts because it gives a better sense of perspective as to just how large these elements are.  Great work!

I got a chance to drive by the park this past weekend.  These elements are much taller than I realized.  The large airtime hill is right in between the height of Diamondback's third and fourth hills.  The top of the helix is only a few feet shorter than Diamondback's fourth hill.  This ride is really impressive against the skyline now.  B&M hypers are the most picturesque coasters in the world, and it's still in many ways difficult to comprehend that Kings Island now has two.
