Valravn Set to Smash Records as it Screams Over Cedar Point

Cedar Point announced today that Valravn, the park's first dive machine roller coaster will be coming to the park in 2016. This marks the park's 18th coaster and it's the first time one of these coasters is being built outside of a Busch Gardens park in North America and they're definitely upping the ante with the latest from Bolliger & Mabillard with this one. It will be the tallest, fastest, and longest of its kind anywhere in the world, fitting for B&M's 100th coaster.

The new coaster, named after a supernatural raven from Danish folklore, will be located where there the Good Time Theater once stood and offer plenty of new thrills for all who seek to tame the insanity. Just what can we expect from the newest shrine to thrills to grace Cedar Point's skyline? Well, here's the breakdown.

Riders will be arranged in an 8 across seat arrangement as they rise 220 feet before plummeting 214 feet back down to earth and reach speeds 75 MPH. You'll go through 3 inversions over the length of the 3,415 foot long course.

It not only features the world's tallest immelman inversion, standing at 165ft but it will bring the over 200ft club up to 5 total for Cedar Point as well.

Stay tuned as we get more information on this breaking announcement!

And now for the official POV from Cedar Point!

And for those looking for something a bit different, a Panoramic POV!

Here's a couple more pictures of the coaster from Cedar Point:

Disney Announces Toy Story Land for Disney Hollywood Studios at Disney World

Toy Story Land overview concept art

This is another one of those things that's been long since rumored to be coming to Disney Hollywood Studios in Orlando. Well, today, those rumors can be put to rest as during the Parks & Resorts Panel at the annual D23 Expo, Disney finally unveiled their plans for Toy Story Land. This, along with the earlier announcement of the all new Star Wars Land also coming to Hollywood Studios means that a lot of the park will be changing over the next few years.

As you can, from the concept art, there's a ton of things going on in there. Some rides are going to get improved, such as a third track being added to Toy Story Mania to improve capacity and also a few new rides and experiences as well.

One of those being, The Little Green Men Flying Saucers. It's a spinner ride, but with a little extra twist as "The Claw" will decide who stays and who goes. Sounds pretty interesting there, but without seeing anything specific, can't be sure what that means.

The larger, and dominating feature of the concept art is what will be the Slinky Dog Coaster. Yep, that's right, you get to take a ride on on Slink. Not really sure just what exactly they have planned for this one but it appears that riders will be inside Slinky Dog as they twist and turn through various sections of the park.

Again, we're going to have to wait for more details on this one, but adding a slightly more kid friendly coaster to Hollywood Studios isn't entirely a bad idea at first glance.

So far, that's all that was told about new Toy Story Land expansion project at Disney Hollywood Studios, but you can be sure there's going to be a ton of info coming as we get closer to an opening date. Speaking of that, no clue when that is either. So, stay tuned as more details come out from Disney at this year's D23 Expo and beyond!
