This is Raptor

Raptor - it really does rule the sky!

This is the terribly twisted Raptor, the only inverted (with feet dangling) roller coaster at Cedar Point. Built in 1994, Raptor broke a few world records. On it's debut it was the tallest (137 feet) and fastest (over 55 mph) inverted roller coaster. It was also the first to feature a cobra roll, which makes you go up half a loop, spirals you into a half corkscrew, and then repeats it in the reverse order (located on the far right side of the screen). Raptor's six inversions and incredibly varying g-forces make it my favorite inverted coaster (as of this writing). (Picture courtesy of
