Tallest. Fastest. Longest. Cedar Point has a new roller coaster and it’s a record breaker. The Valravn opens later this spring at the Ohio-based amusement park known for having some of the best coasters in the world. The new coaster will be the longest, tallest and fastest dive coaster that ever existed.
The dive coaster
What’s a dive coaster? It’s a groundbreaking steel roller coaster manufactured by Swiss-based Bollinger & Mabillar where riders experience the thrill of free falling with at least one 90-degree drop. One element that makes dive coasters unique is that unlike other coasters, where the lift hill leads direct to the first drop, dive coasters take riders to a flat section of track, followed by a holding brake. Once riders are at a full stop (and after a few seconds of terror) the coaster plummets into the vertical drop.
