Once More for the Raven
Koch also decided to do away with the trim brakes that would have saved on track and train wear and tear but would also drain the fun by slowing the ride down midcourse. The result is a short, but wonderfully sweet, 90-second ride filled with everything coaster lover coasters crave--especially airtime.
Different seats on a coaster's train often yield different ride experiences. Many riders wait in special lines to nab a front seat for its unobstructed views. But the rear seat typically offers the most intense ride. This is especially true for Raven. It is airtime heaven in its back seat with both free-floating air and the more violent ejector air.
As the coaster comes tearing into its Gothic-themed station house, there is an oft-repeated refrain: Quoth the Raven's passengers, "Once more!"
