Cedar Point - Valravn - World's Tallest, Fastest, Longest Dive Coaster

14 posts in this topic

I have been watching the live stream cameras of construction from start to finish and it was really impressive watching them construct this beast. Including the MCBR how they lifted it sideways and up between all those post and doing the top of the lift hill. I thought I would post some screen shots from the opening day I got from the live stream cameras.

 

The queue line for Valravn reached the second sky ride queue and it was funny to watch how many people dashed for the ride as soon as the gate opened. It was amazing to watch how quickly CP can load and unload trains. They were sending trains out within 90seconds from entering the station to leaving the station. With some times even managed to get a few to turn around within 60 seconds.

and if you check the live stream cameras they have now opened for the second weekend of the season. I must say it has been a great addition to what CP has to offer and is a great deal for only 25million to get what they did with it.

Here is a video that shows what the general area looks like and I must say it really looks nice and is a huge step up from CP past track record of just building rides with generic themes.

Yup it's the standard. That is when the ride is actually running. Don't know many times I've been stuck on that ride or just missed out boarding it. Positive is I got to experience a roll back once :wub:

Happy that CP have added this ride. It was much needed for them to hold onto their "Roller Coaster Capital of the World" title IMO. Maverick and Millennium Force is still where my heart is though. Now if only RMC can get their hands on Mean Streak.

^If only they could afford it.

It's ironic my fave coaster at CP is 105 feet tall, but I love the big coasters too. I've been on a few dive coasters, the drops are fun, but not a lot happens otherwise. It's impressive how they've jammed it into that space between Raptor and Millennium Force.

I've always thought a Dive Coaster would be great at MW, with a flying coaster at SW. Both coaster types with very unique experiences. Budgets however make that a little bit unrealistic.
