Diamondback is a Bolliger & Mabillard steel hypercoaster located at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio. The ride is 5,282 feet long and spans from just behind International Street and the Eiffel Tower and over the Rivertown area, and into a wooded area. The roller coaster contains a splashdown element near the end of the ride in the former Swan Lake area in Rivertown, near The Beast. Construction of this ride restored The Beast's entrance to its original 1979 location. Diamondback is the biggest investment in Kings Island’s 38-year history at $22 million. The coaster has a 230 ft lift hill with a 215 ft-drop, featuring 10 total drops and a top speed of about 80 mph. This ride is similar to Behemoth at Canada's Wonderland in dimensions and statistics, and like Behemoth has staggered seating. It opened on April 18, 2009. It is also the park's first ever Bolliger & Mabillard roller coaster. It is also the first new coaster to be installed after Kings Island was bought by Cedar Fair.


Diamondback was a proposed nuclear-armed air-to-air missile studied by the United States Navy's Naval Ordnance Test Station during the 1950s. Intended as an enlarged, nuclear-armed version of the successful Sidewinder missile, Diamondback did not progress beyond the study stage.
