The point is that you can never say something is fail-safe. There is always, ALWAYS something that can go wrong.

Very true. Fail-safe is relative.


I think magnets have been proven to not suddenly, at any random point, lose their magnetism. Unless the stators rip off the track, the magnets fall off the bottom of the train, or the lims launch the train backwards, Maverick is fail-safe. That is the whole point of Engineering.........

How early June do you think it will be open? I will be there May 31st- June 3rd and are hoping it will be open by then. If its not, then so be it, but it looks pretty intense.

I would say you don't have much of a chance. If you really want to ride July or after would probably be the safest bet.

Thanks, its not really a big deal. Though the ride looks very fun, I will still be pleased with my Millenium Force and Top Thrill Dragster.

^I'm going on the 18-23 of June. They said early June, but i'm having my doubts. We're actually going to PKI, Geagua Lake, and CP, and CP is our last stop for 2 days. I think it should be open by then. I hope so.

Not a bad guess -- Patriot at Worlds of Fun has a second, separate line, and while it's not indicated as single rider, it's there. Considering it's CF's next newest steel coaster, I wouldn't be surprised if they're starting a trend.

I don't think there will be a single rider line. Look at this picture, as I stated earlier, it will probably be used for dual loading, the same as TTD.
