The Valravn Birdseye roller coaster opening for the first time in the summer of 2016 will set all kinds of records and we’ve just gotten our first look at it, albeit a virtual one.

Cedar Point, an amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, released a virtual video of the Valravn in action and this thing is just beastly.

The day it opens it will be the tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster on planet Earth. The coaster was designed by Bolliger & Mabillard in Monthey, Switzerland, Valravn Birdseye and is the 100th coaster they have created, Gizmodo noted.

The Valravn will also be the world’s ______est in seven other categories.

Cedar Point counted the ways the Valravn roller coaster will be a record-breaker:

1. Tallest dive coaster (223 feet)
2. Fastest dive coaster (75 mph)
3. Longest dive coaster (3,415 feet)
4. Most inversions on a dive coaster (three)
5. Longest drop on a dive coaster (214 feet)
6. Highest inversion on a dive coaster (165 feet)
7. Most roller coasters taller than 200 feet at one amusement park (5)
8. Most rides at one amusement park (72)
9. Most steel roller coaster track at one amusement park (52,125 feet/9.9 miles)
10. Most roller coaster track at one amusement park (60,110 feet/11.4 miles)

Will you brave the Valravn?
