I really don't care if I ever ride it again and if I do I probably wouldn't wait anymore then 20-30 minutes for it.

There are far better rides at the park... like DISASTER TRANSPORT!!! :b


So it WASN'T sex in coaster form for you?? :lolr:

Give it some credit, it was at least great foreplay! It and Raptor are in a balls out fight for the best ride in the park!

I thought Maverick was great, random-fun. It was like California Screamin's adventerous and expirimental younger-brother. Whereas CA-Screamin has graceful, swooping-turns that ensure a balanced ride, Maverick sort of went where it wanted to go and did what it wanted to do. I very much enjoyed it.

^Yeah, it's a very good ride with a very apt name. It's easily the best coaster they've got in their arsenal.

^^ Wow, that's probably the best description of Maverick I've ever seen. :)

I'm curious to know if other parks will build rides of this type with similar layouts or if this was just a one time deal from Intamin.

I beg to differ, this was the only letdown of the ride IMO. You fly out of the tunnel just to slam into brakes, its quite depressing.

^Yeah, you definitely feel them. I love that launch, but the trims right after is one of the dumber moments in coaster history. I would have plenty happy if they had just done an insanely quick 60 mph launch without the brakes.

Oh well, I still love the ride.

I thought Maverick was a great ride. I just don't think it's the best there though. I do agree that the turn is pretty dumb, when they trim it to heck. Also I think if they didn't mess up with the barrel roll the ride would have been alot more exciting for me.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

I didn't feel the trims, although that was probably because the launch was way better then I thought it would be. I didn't even know there were going to be special effects in it! :b

I rode it six times and I never felt the trims.
I'm glad they're there though, because you'd probably have a concussion from the Stengels if they weren't.

Cedar Point's 2008 Attraction

Postby ECZenith » Sat Aug 18, 2007 8:48 pm

Got a message from Cedar Point via myspace and they sent along the following image with the topic: New for 2008. Looks like they've already started digging for a new ride/attraction for next season. Not much to look at just yet but this is certain to develop.

Anyone know what part of the park this is?
