Kings Island has announced the winner of a competition named for its newest thrill ride.
The competition paid homage to "Banshee," which will be the world's longest inverted roller coaster when it opens in April 2014. The $24 million project will take riders through 4,124 feet of track and seven inversions at speeds of up to 68 miles per hour.
Weber won a trip for two to Los Angeles, tickets to Knott's Berry Farm and $1,000 in cash. He bested more than 1,000 park visitors who competed over six weeks.
