Well, Wicked Twister launches to about 70 MPH in I would say 100 ft, but its inital launch it 55MPH....sooo It's a fun launch, deffinately something that would pin you to your seat!

Just backing up a couple pages to address the Maverick model. Paul is a friend of mine, who I happen to be meeting up with at the Point in a week. He actually put that model together pretty quickly, getting the bulk of the work done in a matter of weeks. I never am able to put my CoasterDynamix models together that fast. Now, this next bit will surely make many of you jealous (I sure as heck was when he called me last night and told me the news). His model so impressed the Cedar Fair people that they sent him an invite to Maverick Media Day this Thursday. Yep, he's gonna get to ride Maverick before the rest of us suckers AND will probably be on TV/in ads to boot. So, for those of you wondering how to get invited to media day: either be in the media or build a whopping, spot-on replica of the featured Media Day ride ;)

Maverick Opening Delayed
Tuesday May 8, 1:05 pm ET
May 10th Media Preview Cancelled


SANDUSKY, Ohio, May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cedar Point announced today that the opening of Maverick, the park's 17th roller coaster, will be delayed until early June to make modifications to the coaster's steel track.

The Media Preview of Maverick scheduled for Thursday, May 10 has been cancelled. The ride will not be in operation on Opening Day.

The decision to delay the opening of Maverick was based on pre-opening tests and consultation with IntaRide, the manufacturer of the ride. Based on these discussions, it has been determined that three sections of steel track following the launch tunnel should be replaced.

"We apologize to all of our guests for this inconvenience," said John Hildebrandt, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point. "This decision was made in the interest of improving the guest experience on the ride and to eliminate excessive stress on the trains."

The modification process is already underway and the park hopes to open the ride by early June.

Cedar Point will be open daily Saturday, May 12 through Labor Day, Sept. 3. It will reopen for a Bonus Weekend on Sept. 7-9 and seven HalloWeekends from Sept. 14-16 through October 26-28, 2007.


Well, this bites.

So does this mean they are changing the layout slightly or just changing some pieces of bad track?
