‘Tallest, fastest and longest’ dive coaster in the world coming to Cedar Point
It’s after Labor Day, and that means one thing for theme parks: It’s time to start planning next year’s debut rides.
First up is Cedar Point, the “Roller Coaster Capital of the World” in Sandusky, Ohio, which on Wednesday announced “Valravn”: the tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster in the world, coming in 2016.
The more that theme parks compete for the ultimate roller coaster, the more they seem to be inventing terminology for them.
This one is a “dive coaster,” which, according to Cedar Point, means that there’s a 90 degree drop in the middle of it — that’s to give riders the feeling of free fall.
Here’s a video rendering of Valravn from a rider’s perspective:
