Raptor
       Raptor may not be the tallest or fastest inverted coaster, but it is ranked highly by many coaster enthusiasts. Built in 1994, as the tallest and fastest inverted coaster, Raptor was one of the first inverted coasters. It is an intense ride all around.
        The first drop starts with a quick turn to the left then you fall 119 feet at a 45 degree angle. Following the first drop there are 6 inversions: vertical loop, zero G roll, cobra roll, and two corkscrews. The elements on Raptor are placed great.
