I really enjoyed riding Valravn. My only real complaint was that the ride seemed rather short. It has a fantastic drop and a few nice loops, but I would have enjoyed a longer experience. This picture shows how the massive Immelmann Loop is the only element between the huge first drop and the mid-course brakes.
On the other hand, Valravn is the world's longest Dive Coaster, so I shouldn't really complain about its length. It has a lot more to it than the first Dive Coaster, Oblivion at Alton Towers in the United Kingdom. That coaster, which is only a third as long as this coaster, consists of just a large dive into a tunnel and a simple turn back to the station.
