FOR PEOPLE WHO love rollercoasters, Cedar Point in Ohio is something of a Mecca.

Valravn carries riders up a steep hill before perching them over the edge to look over the park and Lake Erie. Then it tosses them down a sharp drop at a vertical 90-degree angle, like this:

CNN Travel named the coaster one of its best new rides of 2016 and Coaster 101 called it “the next best thing to skydiving”.
