Valravn – Official POV

7 Valravn Cedar Point Stats You Should Know

 

 

1.      Tallest Dive Coaster

 

Before we continue with the incredible stats of Valravn, you should probably know what a dive coaster is.

A Dive Coaster is simply a steel roller coaster that features a near-vertical drop at almost 90-degrees and gives you the sensation of free-falling.

This type of roller coaster was created and engineered by Bolliger & Mabillard (also known as B &M in the industry).

Valravn currently holds the title of being the tallest dive coaster in the world at 223 feet.

2.      Fastest Dive Coaster

 

As if dealing with the thought of diving into the depths aren’t bad enough, now you have to do it at 75 mph.

Yep, that’s right!

If you’re a roller coaster fanatic, you’re probably thinking that’s not too bad and that Valravn’s speed is the industry average…

…but remember, this is a dive coaster.

Everything about this type of ride revolves around how intense the dives are at each drop in the attraction. So, adding 75 mph to an already intense roller coaster only puts it to the insane level.

 

Remember: Sheikra at Busch Gardens in Tampa is a dive coaster with speeds reaching 70 mph.

 

3.      Longest Dive Coaster

 

Cedar Point’s Valravn is the longest dive coaster in the world at 3,415 feet and it makes good use of the space inside the park.

If you haven’t been to Cedar Point in a while, then you may be wondering what happened to the Good Times Theater (formerly the Cedar Point Theater) and the Turnpike Cars?

They were demolished to make room for Valravn.

Although the roller coaster is 3,415 feet long, it does not feel like a big annoyance in the center of the park. In fact, it adds to the “Roller Coaster Capital of The World” atmosphere that Cedar Point is known to have.

 

4.      Most Inversions on a Dive Coaster

 

Valravn has three inversions, making it the only dive coaster in the world to have that many.

Canada’s Wonderland Theme Park will be opening its own dive coaster, Yukon Striker, which will have a total of four inversions!

 

5.      Longest Drop on a Dive Coaster

 

Not only do you have to be brave enough to dive 90-degrees into the depths of the earth on Valravn, you’ll have to do it on the longest recorded drop at 214 feet.

And yes, I did say 214 feet!

 

Imagine your feet dangling 214 feet at the top of Valravn for what seems like hours, while you wait for the coaster car to finally break free…

 

But don’t worry, I know you got this.

After all, if you can brave solo theme park hopping then you can do ANYTHING!

The lift hill is also on a 45-degree angle, which is much steeper than most coasters that average around a 30-degree angle.

 

6.      Highest Inversion on a Dive Coaster

 

Here’s where it gets fun.

As mentioned earlier, there are three inversions on Valravn at Cedar Point. One of the most notable inversions is a 165-foot Immelmann Roll.

An Immelmann Roll is a half-loop that inverts coaster cars for a half twist and sends them in the reverse direction.

 

7.      Good Ride Length

 

Valravn lasts for 2 minutes and 23 seconds. I think this is plenty of time to take that deep dive and scream your head off.

Tips to Remember for Valravn

 

  • Use Cedar Point Fast Lane to skip the line. If not, expect to wait a LONG time (2 hours+) for the ride.
  • Get a locker or leave your personal items with someone you trust. Cedar Point does not allow you to bring anything on the ride. They are very serious about this policy, so just don’t try it.
  • You can use the small cubby boxes inside Valravn’s ride station to hold your sunglasses or shoes that may fly off.
  • Try to sit on the edge if you can in order to get the BEST views and the BEST ride experience.
  • Stay at an onsite hotel such as Hotel Breakers to get early park admission.

 

Final Review of Valravn

 

Cedar Point Solo Trip | Sights and Sounds Walk Through

 

Overall, Valravn at Cedar Point is a wonderful dive coaster and a perfect addition to the park. I do recommend that you experience it on your next trip to this Sandusky, Ohio theme park.

The rows for the coaster cars are long, as expected with a dive coaster vehicle, with only three rows and eight seats in each row.

This allows for twenty-four passengers per car.

The ride restraints are super comfortable which helps contribute to the overall ride experience.

I mostly admired the smoothness and the easy transitions through the inversions.

 

Yes, the 90-degree drop is terrifying, but you’re at Cedar Point and to be quite honest, Valravn is the least of your worries while at this park.

 

So, when you get to the top of the ride, embrace the suspense and take in all the stunning views surrounding Cedar Point.
