The Raven is a wooden roller coaster located at Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana, USA. It has repeatedly won the Best Wooden Coaster Golden Ticket Award. The ride opened in 1995 and features a 120 foot long underground tunnel. It is named after Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven".

History

The Raven officially opened on May 6, 1995.

When the ride first opened, it featured just one train. A second train was installed in 2005 to coincide with its 10th anniversary.

During the 2020-2021 off-season, The Raven was given a refurbishment. The ride's trains were repainted with wings on both sides and 25% of the track was replaced.[1]
