(WJBK) - Having Cedar Point withdrawals? Here's a peek at how the next season is shaping up.
The new coaster, Valravn, is bound to be the highlight of the 2016 season. The track climbs over 20 stories before being held over the edge for four seconds as riders hang, waiting for that heart-pounding moment. Then, it's a 75-mph dive STRAIGHT DOWN at a 90-degree angle as the massive trains flip upside-down through three inversions along the ride's 3,415 feet of steel track.
Cedar Point released some awesome footage of the coaster's construction. The footage was shot on February 16, 2016. You can watch in the video player above.
And, if you're still having withdrawals, the park is having its first-ever job fair this Sunday, March 6, at Castaway Bay. Jobs are available in food & beverage, ride operations, hotels & resorts, admissions, games, merchandise, maintenance, employee transportation and more.
