You never know, Simba. Anything could happen in future.

I was planning on waiting until it's fully finished before updating my cover photo, hence why I mentioned the time is soon, not now.

Valravn's lifthill and right hand turn before holding break is now complete, making it now offically the tallest dive coaster in the world.

For some things, there is no rational explanation. There is no way out. There is no happy ending to this story. Welcome to the unknown; welcome to eternal darkness, welcome to Oblivion.

That last picture really does show how tall this actually is! It towers over Raptor!

Now that does look good, it really does make Raptor look small.

Now this does look cool, allbeit I believe he is technically right, but I believe the bigger box track on the big B&M Dive Coasters like this have it due to the extra weight of the trains and the distrubtion of the passanegers, for SheKira and Griffon it's the configuration of ten guests per row, and three rows, this is similar to the Oblivion style train in the sense that it's eight guests per row, but with an extra row bringing the total up to three. The "streamline smaller" diving coaters which have been poping up also continue with the trend of three rows but only six guests per row, which means the trains have an easier track to weight distribution with the smaller track, and similar structure in supports as the new big one.

I might be wrong in saying this, but isn't Valravn the first and so far only big B&M diving coaster since the smaller diving coaster have been in production? if that theortically is the case I wonder if we will be see more big diving coasters with new custom layouts like we have been seeing with the smaller ones.

if I am correct when busch gardens installed shekria and griffon they placed a restriction on them in the united states because they were the first of their kind in the U.S so they wanted to dominate the dive coaster scene and prevent another park from taking their popularity. so basically until now there could be no larger dive coaster or for that matter any dive coaster in the U.S until now so we may see a few parks open a new dive coaster of possibly this scale (doubt it will be a six flags though because they really can't afford one and hence why six flags has kept with S&S and RMC). personally I can't wait for a park like silver dollar city and Dollywood to open one and see if they can even add the splashdown and a tunnel (which this could really use)
