Cedar Point, a 365-acre amusement park located in Sandusky, Ohio, is allowing thrill seekers a virtual preview of the world’s tallest, longest and fastest dive rollercoaster with this animated display.
When it is completed next year, riders on the Valravn (pictured) will be carried to the top of the coaster’s 223ft first hill.
Once there, the train is held over the edge of the first drop for about four seconds before free-falling 214ft, flipping its passengers upside-down and taking them up again in a manoeuvre known to fighter pilots as the Immelmann turn, which sends them speeding off in the opposite direction.
The train then plunges 125 feet down at a near-90-degree angle once again, twisting and turning upside-down two more times, once through a dive loop and then through a 270-degree roll before completing its epic journey over 3,415 feet of tarnished copper and silver steel track.
When the ride is built, Cedar Point will break 10 world records:
1 Tallest dive coaster (223ft)
2 Fastest dive coaster (75 mph)
3 Longest dive coaster (3,415ft)
4 Longest dive coaster (3,415ft)â€¨5 Most inversions on a dive coaster (three)â€¨6 Longest drop on a dive coaster (214ft)
7 Highest inversion on a dive coaster (165ft)
8 Most roller coasters taller than 200 feet at one amusement park (5)Â Â Â Â
9 Most steel roller coaster track at one amusement park (9.9 miles)
10 Most roller coaster track at one amusement park (11.4 miles)
Valravn can accommodate about 1,200 riders per hour. It will be completed next year.
