SANDUSKY, Ohio – Coaster fans across the country are having a hard time containing their excitement: Increasing evidence points to the opening next year of a record-breaking dive coaster at Cedar Point.
Computerized images of a coaster called Valravn appeared on several Internet sites over the weekend, reportedly taken from a Cedar Point phone app, which has since been disabled.
Cedar Point spokesman Bryan Edwards declined to comment on the images. But Robb Alvey, who runs the website Theme Park Review, said the images are credible.
Well holy shit. Cedar Point already boasts 16 (or is it 17?) awesome rollercoasters and this one is no different. Don’t really have any idea what a “Dive Coaster” is but I know this seems like one of those rides where you’ll gladly wait in line for 3 hours in 85 degree heat while losing 5 lbs of water weight because you’re sweating so much. For me there’s only 2 rides in the park that justify that long of a wait; Millennium Force and Maverick. Those are the top 2 and if you disagree you’re wrong. Top Thrill is cool but there’s all that waiting for what, 15 seconds of action and then you’re done? All that build up for a fun, fast, ride that leaves you wanting more. Hm. Sounds like we’re talking about a completely different subject here.
Here are my official power rankings for best rides in the park because I know you all are DYING to know.
- Millennium Force (GOAT)
- Top Thrill Dragster
- Magnum (A classic)
- Max Air (underrated, best non coaster in the park)
- Rougarou (Mantis killed your nuts)
- Witches Wheel (don’t hate)
- Wicked Twister
- Power Tower
- Corkscrew (only because there’s usually no line)
- Mean Streak (ALWAYS walk away with a sore back)
