Why Not Take a Dive?

Opened in 2016, Valravn at Cedar Point is the world’s tallest Bolliger & Mabillard Dive Machine roller coaster.  Only 1 of 3 Dive Machines in the U.S., Valravn was a welcome and thrilling new edition nearer to the front of the park.  With a 217 foot drop and a top speed of 75 mph, Valravn captured the crown from Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s Griffon with its greater height and speed.

What’s Your Take?

Which Dive Machine’s have you ridden?  Do you prefer the drop or view on Valravn or one of the other variants located in the U.S. or around the world?  Which do you think is more fun on these kind of coasters, a front row or back row ride?
