The day it opens it will be the tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster on planet Earth. The coaster was designed by Bolliger & Mabillard in Monthey, Switzerland and is the 100th coaster they have created, Gizmodo noted.

The Valravn will also be the world’s ______est in seven other categories.

1. Tallest dive coaster (223 feet)
2. Fastest dive coaster (75 mph)
3. Longest dive coaster (3,415 feet)
4. Most inversions on a dive coaster (three)
5. Longest drop on a dive coaster (214 feet)
6. Highest inversion on a dive coaster (165 feet)
7. Most roller coasters taller than 200 feet at one amusement park (5)
