Cedar Point (CP) Discussion Thread

p. 2030 - Top Thrill 2 announced!

Recommended Posts

So Cedar Point filed a trademark application for the word "Valravn" this past week. It's a 'blanket application' covering amusement park rides, services, and all types of souvenirs, as is typical for their attraction trademarks.

 

 

Looking into the mythology of the word, it appears to be a supernatural Raven creature from Danish folklore. It actually has a pretty dark/scary story, and you can read all about it here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valravn

 

It's a pretty safe bet to assume this mark is intended for use at Cedar Point specifically, because it was filed by "Cedar Point Park" (like the application for Rougarou) and not by "Cedar Fair Management" (like the applications for Fury 325, Voyage to the Iron Reef , etc.).

 

Of course, whether or not they actually end up using the name is another story (*cough* Centurion *cough*), but these applications aren't free, so there's at least currently some intent to use it.

Oooh, interesting... I think that would be a pretty cool name for a coaster, and it fits in with the "mythical creatures" kick they seem to be on with GateKeeper and Rougarou.

 

And I know it's typical for these trademark applications to include this, but I find it somewhat hilarious in this case that it includes "plush toys" (and other kid stuff) when a Valravn is described as:

 

capable of turning into the form of a knight after consuming the heart of a child

 

and

 

a peaceless soul in search of redemption that flies by night (but never day) and can only free itself from its animal countenance by consuming the blood of a child.

 

All the kids will want one!

Could be a cool theme for a dark ride!

Just curious, what's the name of the website where I can find these trademark filings? (Sorry if it sounds like a dumb question.)

What's with them trying to pick names no one can pronounce, seriously do they expect people to say that? Anyway that seems like it fit perfectly for some haloween kinda thing but merchandise wouldn't happen with that. I'm almost leaning towards that as a dark ride than a dive machine just for the fact of it's creepyness. And am I the only one who would pay the park to trademark DiveHawk 232 just to see the reaction?

Gee, that's dark... Really dark... Almost... Too dark

 

*coug* Banshee *Cough*

 

Even worse, that leaves CW with the ever boring, un-intimidating name of "ziz" for their next coaster *sigh*

I actually like the name!! I can't wait to see the new (as we are all going to assume) Dive Machine. I feel given the name they could actually attempt some decent theming. . . Well... we can hope. I think the name fits in well with the Rougarou name.

This name is awful. I hope these are just trying to throw us off the scent.

Care to elaborate?

 

Sounds like a great name for a dive machine to me!

He really doesn't need to elaborate. The name stinks. Not only is it going to be terrible to try and pronounce, but nobody really knows what a Valravn is before they Google it.

Because you know Rougarou is so easy to pronounce and EVERYONE knows what it is without googling it.

It's still easier to pronounce than a name that ends with "VN".

It's literally Val-Raven but without the E between the V and the N. It's not that complicated, and I'm sure it'll be like Leviathan, Gatekeeper, Banshee and have a giant bird statue with the name. People will put 2+2 together, and realize it's Valravn. Thus realizing it's pronounced Val-Raven.

I wonder if they might attempt to theme their dive machine and give it a dark ride-like lift hill with a back-story to go with the name Valravn--wouldn't mind seeing Cedar Fair take a crack at it! I think it's great that they are trying to find some mythological creatures and concepts that haven't been beaten to death in pop culture to incorporate into the parks. They add personality and a great new layer of fun.

I actually like that turn..... It's a nice snappy ending. I think they should add some more extreme flat rides personally, I really think a gerstlauer sky fly would work well there. Maybe a zamperla star shape too.

 

Yeah I wish they had as many flats as those SF parks!

 

Maybe they could add one of those thrilling Diablo Loopers from Larson.

I think Six Flags is making a smart move by adding these Super Loops, I just wish they wouldn't call them coasters.

I think a Super Loop would be a great addition at Cedar Point too.
