imdrunk, Maverick will be open for opening day, so you shouldn't have any problem at all getting on it for your visit. Keep in mind it may have a large line, so get there right when the park opens to beat the crowds! One strategy would be to park back by Soak City and then go in the entrance gate under Magnum, that will put you closest to Maverick.

Just trying to help out. Everybody better say "Hi!" to me when you ride it this summer.

:| THIS IS SO BORING. :| I am sitting here watching this webcam like I am waiting for something to happen. :roll: Grrrrr I need to get a life. I keep seeing a bird fly in front of the camera. This is so boring. OMG that is weird. It just took me from looking at Maverick to looking at Top Thrill Dragster and I did not do anything. NOPE it is back at maverick, now it is on skyhawk. OMG I am so confused. Why wont it stay still?

My friend who works at the park says testing started Thursday.

He said it rolled back in the second corkscrew. :P
I am out of ideas for what to write in this signature box.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

I must say this shot looks absolutely amazing. That heartline role will be quite the element, creating a visual in which riders will feel they will hit the ground on the roll.

From that angle it looks like they have been testing so they must have fixed this:

Why do I still have a donkey title???

How does that angle make it look like they've been testing? I see no train in the picture.

If it has been testing and has rolled back that's no big deal. Rides roll back all the time, especially when brand new and in cold weather.

Even Millenium Force won't clear the 2nd hill without water dummy's when it's cold.

I mean look at the rails. I looked at them and it looks like the train has gone over that spot several times. Or could that be from the pull through?

I think you're seeing things. ;)

All I see is dirt from the construction, and the white running lines that are built into the rails.

You wouldn't be able to tell by looking at the track that the train had been testing.
