US theme park Cedar Point is getting a new coaster called Valravn, set to break upwards of 10 records.

The crazy 75 mph, 223-foot tall ride is set to open to the public in 2016 but for now, a virtual reality video has been released for prospective riders to get a glimpse of what they might be getting into.

The VR experience includes “giving anxious guests unparalleled views of the park before free-falling a record 214 feet at a completely vertical, 90-degree angle” and there is an app available on both Apple’s App Store and Google Play, enabling anyone with a pair of smartphone-ready VR goggles to take a ride on the coaster.

Records Valravn will be breaking:

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)
8. Most rides at one amusement park (72)
9. Most steel roller coaster track at one amusement park (52,125 feet/9.9 miles)
10. Most roller coaster track at one amusement park (60,110 feet/11.4 miles)
