All the supports are now in place as well as more track for what's actually referred to as a 270 degree roll.

Here's some additional images from the Construction Blog.

Although crews have Sundays off, they did work at quite a pace yesterday to complete the majority of the turnaround leading to the airtime hill.

Not sure if this has been picked up but saw some information about them doing something with Valravn queue line which has never been done before. Details to follow soon I'd imagine.

When I saw this on Facebook earlier I got extremely excited. Don't know why, I just got mega hyper. I think it's because I've been following construction from the very beginning.

I burst into excitement when I heard it was testing! I love following construction of coasters from the initial announcement and seeing it test for the first time is the icing on the cake!

Yesterday's Valravn Minute features some more footage of the ride testing as well as a look at the progress on its plaza area.

Also, Tony Clark recently tweeted this photo of the current state of the station. I can't say I'm too sure about the diamond panelling...

Cedar Point aren't really known as theming specialists (with the exception of Maverick) but surely they can do better than this considering the name and logo of the coaster.
