WATCH: Jim Geyer takes on Cedar Point’s newest coaster


(WLNS) – StormTracker 6 meteorologist (and resident coaster correspondent) Jim Geyer says he has taken hundreds of rides on roller coasters all across the United States.

So when Cedar Point debuted the new dive coaster “Valravn”, Jim was up for the challenge.

What makes this ride so daunting?

Riders are taken 223 feet in the air, suspended in open space for four seconds, then dropped straight down to begin a series of twists and turns. And that’s just the beginning.

Jim had the cameras rolling when he took his inaugural ride this morning and wanted to share the fun (?) with everyone.
