SANDUSKY, OH (WNEM) -

If you’re already making summer plans, you can factor a new Cedar Point ride into the equation.

The amusement park announced a new ride, the Valravn, will open this summer.

Riders will climb more than 20 stories before being held over the edge for four seconds. Then it’s a 75-mph dive straight down a 90-degree angle as the trains flip upside-down through three inversions along the ride.

Cedar Point is billing the Valravn as the tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster in the world.

Three other rides will not re-open this summer. The Shoot the Rapids water ride, along with two rides in Challenge Park, Skyscraper and Challenge Racing will be removed. No plans for the spots have been announced.
