Raptor is a coaster I had bypassed on previous visits to Cedar Point in favor of more extreme thrill rides such as Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster.  I finally decided to give it a try and am glad that I did.  An inverted/suspended coaster seating four across,  it makes a left turn from the loading station, ascends a 137-foot lift hill and drops 119 feet  before going up into a 100-foot vertical loop.  This is followed by a zero-g roll, cobra roll and first of two helixes.  The ride features two corkscrews and a pretty intense helix towards the end.  What a fun ride!  I’ve been on several similar coasters but thought that this one is somewhat above average.  4 out of 5 stars.   For more information about rides at Cedar Point, visit www.cedarpoint.com
