Valravn

Valravn

Valravn is the tallest, fastest, and longest dive roller coaster in the world! Valravn is Cedar Point’s marina gate guardian!

Valravn takes guests more than 20 stories up to the top of it’s 223-foot tall lifthill. The train hangs at the top for about four seconds, just long enough to make the heart pound and the breathing get heavy, then drops you at a 90 degree angle, all while reaching a top speed of 75 miles per hour!

Valravn flips riders upside-down through an immelmann loop, then a half roll before traveling in the opposite direction! Riders then approach another drop zone but this one does not stop and it drops you at almost 90 degrees a second time, twisting and turning upside-down two more times, once through a dive loop, and then a 270-degree roll!
