Is THIS what Cedar Point will unleash in 2016?
Well, look at what we have here!! There’s some footage that has surfaced on YouTube from the Trevor Bondi Media account in the last couple of weeks that shows what appears to be 3D video of what Valravn could look like at Cedar Point in 2016. As we’ve been telling this year, there’s rumors running rampant about a dive coaster coming to America’s Roller Coast. That couples with the announcement from Cedar Fair’s CEO Matt Ouimet this year that all parks in the portfolio will eventually get a dark ride, which we wrote about recently. At this point, it appears that we could see either but there are fanatics who are certain it’ll be a dive coaster coming next season. To see some good footage for thought as to what The Point might be up to, have a look:
When you think about it, the plots of land that were cleared for the Next Big Thing would be plenty of room for Cedar Point to build a dive coaster and shatter more records (There’s a “Shattered Dreams” by Johnny Hates Jazz reference that belongs here). Cedar Point is all about the coasters and they have always kept a wide assortment of goods in their collection. While some fans would prefer something more cutting edge like what Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster was, getting a dive scream machine would still garner significant ridership numbers. But is there more proof that C.P. has a commitment to taking a dive in 2016? Look at the t-shirt below, which has surfaced on social media and other outlets online. Notice anything unusual?……..
Notice that all of the coasters on the shirt have their name around it EXCEPT for the dive coaster going over in front of the “r” in the “Cedar Point” logo. As we wrote to you this spring, Cedar Point has trademarked the name Valravn but they are also the Masters of Disguise!! Their “Whyte Lightning” marketing ploy was quite epic as they were in midst of building Shoot The Rapids in 2010; they love sending us on a wild goose chase! So. Until we know what exactly Cedar Point is doing with their plot of land and their “#CP2016”, we’ve gotten some nice clues on what the possibilities are.
Don’t be shy! Give us your thoughts and feelings in the comments section below with what you think Cedar Point will add in 2016. Have you seen or heard of any clues for of what’s to come at The Point? You can also drop us a comment on our social media channels listed below!

Feast your eyes on what Cedar Point tweeted & posted on Facebook this morning! They’ve got an announcement set-up for Tuesday, August 18th, 2015. Could #CP2016 be the announcement of Valravn or did we fall for another trick of The Point? Nonetheless, the big announcement day will be full of emotion and excitement for America’s Roller Coast and it’s fans.
