This is pretty good deal and offers a fairly affordable way to check out the park’s new Banshee roller coaster.
The Banshee — billed as the world’s longest inverted steel roller coaster — stopped on its lift hill on Monday night.
Park reportedly said the ride did not malfunction and explained that it is designed to stop a train on the hill if other trains on the track have not passed certain points.
I remember spending about 20 minutes on top of the lift hill of the Millennium at Cedar Point a few years back when a rider somehow was able to disable the safety device in his seat.
These mega coasters have a pretty steep grade and it can get a bit uncomfortable sitting there for any length of time.
