“A dive coaster gives its riders the opportunity to dive straight down to Earth,” says Tony Clark, Cedar Point’s director of communications. “The main feature is the holding brake at the top of the hill.” This device creates the nerve-racking pause at the peak.
After the dive, riders are rushed through quick turns, dropped again down a 131-foot dive, and flipped upside down three times!
You must be 52 inches tall to ride Valravn, but those who are too short (or too scared) can experience the ride through virtual reality. The Valravn Virtual Reality Viewer will give a first-hand, 3-D experience from the safety of solid ground.
Clark thinks those who do brave Valravn will be hooked. “It’s the type of coaster you’ll want to ride over and over again!” he says.
