Rollercoasters are always trying to outdo themselves in order to be the next big thing and right now the next big thing is going to be Valravn in Cedar Point, Ohio. This park already has a reputation for some of the most extreme rides on the planet, and the construction of Valravn will enable them to break ten world records for rollercoasters:
1. Tallest dive coaster (223 feet)
2. Fastest dive coaster (75 mph)
3. Longest dive coaster (3,415 feet)
4. Most inversions on a dive coaster (three)
5. Longest drop on a dive coaster (214 feet)
6. Highest inversion on a dive coaster (165 feet)
7. Most roller coasters taller than 200 feet at one amusement park (5)
8. Most rides at one amusement park (72)
9. Most steel roller coaster track at one amusement park (52,125 feet/9.9 miles)
10. Most roller coaster track at one amusement park (60,110 feet/11.4 miles)

What I really like about it is that unlike most rides like this (i.e. Oblivion) there’s actually a bit of a rollercoaster after the first main drop and it isn’t over almost as soon as it’s begun – they’ve actually put some effort into it as a ride rather than just one big feature ride.
Cedar Points, Ohio looks like the place to visit though if you’re into rollercoasters as those stats clearly make it sound like one of the best theme parks in the entire world. If only it wasn’t in Ohio eh? I suppose you could head down to the world’s tallest waterslide in Kansas afterwards – it would probably only take you about 24 hours to get there.
