 Review of Raven @ Holiday World
1 Rating Posted by: benleibo on 8/20/2005 3:33:00 PM
I must say that every year the Raven was ranked the #1 wooden coaster in the world I was a little surprised. However, it kept on winning so I figured Id give the ride a shot. Raven was better than I expected, but definitely not the worlds best woodie. Ive been on several that are better, including Legend which resides next door. For its size Raven is great. Surprising speed for such a short lift hill and it is sustained throughout the whole ride. The wooded setting is great and so is the first tunnel. The turn over Lake Rudolph is taken much faster than I expected and there are considerable G-forces. So, what didnt I like about this ride? First of all, it is a bit too short. It doesnt need to be taller, just longer. With another 2 or 3 airtime hills this ride might have gotten the full 10. It has so much speed and energy and I would love to see it continue longer. As for airtime, there were one or two amazing hills with sustained air. The problem is that there is only one or two moments of true airtime. Once again, Raven could use another few bunny hills. All in all Raven is a great ride and at any other park would be the star of the woodie collection. It makes the most of what it has but just doesnt live up to its #1 rankings.
