After a long winter on the Cedar Point Peninsula, the Valravn construction crew set the final piece of their B&M dive coaster into place. This 3,415 foot coaster consists of 84 track segments that drop riders down from record-breaking heights, offering a panoramic view of Lake Erie. Along the course, the track twists riders into three inversions at top speeds of 75 miles per hour. In a few short months, the bird of Valravn will soar providing brand new thrills to Cedar Point guests.
Now that track work for Valravn is complete, opening day for the coaster is one step closer, and most of the work is out of the way. One of the few tasks that remains is to finalize the electrical of the ride that will drive the lift chain and control the brakes. Once electrical is complete, testing of the ride will commence, which will be exciting to see. With an expected opening of early May, Valravn is well on track to meet that deadline. The first riders should be going around the tack in just about two months!
Coasters are my passion. It's what I do, it's who I am.
