    First Drop Inversions Fun Harness

    Though I despised this coaster on its announcement and opening, I've learned to appreciate it for what it is now. Valravn became yet another Cedar Point icon, and after you walk past the graceful Gatekeeper and the roaring Raptor, you come upon the intimidating bronze Valravn. It's stunning, beautiful, magnificent even, and is beautifully landscaped. As for the ride, the vests do really suck, but for my body type, they're easy to look past. The first and second drops give great back row airtime, the inversions are all smooth with wonderful hangtime, and there are a couple moments of floater air in the second half. For this smaller footprint, Valravn is the perfect fit for the ever flexing Cedar Point, and perfects the B&M monster bird trio of the twinkling, nostalgic CP midway.

    Location Rattle Harness Disappointing!

    La pire des Dives ridées à mon compte. Impossible de détrôner Sheikra à mes yeux et et l'arrivée de Yukon Striker classe Valravn (déjà bien engagé) dans les oubliettes aux dives.

    Quite a few negative reviews and comments about Valravn going around. The restraints, like Yukon striker, are set to cause conversations for decades to come. They undoubtedly interfere with airtime-out-of-seat feeling. This is a problem, when the ride has two major drops and significant airtime pops throughout the route. The inversions are plenty smooth enough, but don't generate intensity; largely because they cannot snap roll with their size. Fun and superb build quality, but really doesn't do anything that Gatekeeper does better. Hold for the front row if at all possible for a much better experience. Not CP or B&M's finest hour; but certainly not a bad ride either.

    First Drop Layout Harness

    I love B&M dives but Valravn is my least favorite behind both SheiKra and Griffon. Valravn’s layout is superb to the other US dives but it suffers due to its restraints. Vest restraints do not belong on Dive machines. It takes away the airtime in the drop and compresses against your chest even more then on the wings. The drop even with the restraints is still fantastic but it’s a shame that the restraints take away from the experience so much.

    First Drop Smoothness Dead spots

    A weak, repetitive coaster that really suffers from a shorter hold atop the drop than Griffon's. It's smooth, but it just doesn't do much.

    First Drop Inversions Fun Too short

    9.1 out of 10! I love this ride, the first drop it is a rush, plus the hang time to see the whole park and all of the rollercoasters from the air is a highlight.

    First Drop Fun Theming Harness Airtimes

    Valravn is known to be the biggest dive coaster in the world right now besides Yukon Striker opening in 2019 at Canada’s Wonderland. Besides it’s massiveness, it is very disappointing according to most people who ride it. The best part about this ride is when you hang over the drop before you plummet down. Also, those big immelmann inversions gives the ride a little life to it and it’s incredible speed for such a monstrous coaster. There are many cons to this ride which makes it disappointing. First of all, this ride has no airtime. Second of all, it rattles quite a lot. Third, it has the same inversions over and over again. Fourth, the theming is horrible and no one knows what it’s supposed to be. Fifth, it has an unreasonable brake in the middle to make it feel like your gonna stop at the edge of the drop again, which slows it down. And fifth, it’s restraints are exactly like gatekeeper’s, tight and uncomfortable.

    I prefer the new restraints over the bulky older ones on Sheikra and Griffon (I still got enough airtime and had a new sensation of freedom with these vests). It's longer than SheiKra and Griffon but the setting is not as nice.

    First Drop Inversions Smoothness Harness Disappointing! Discomfort

    Final roll is excellent; the rest is cookie cutter dive coaster with worse restraints than the others.
