Yeah, my first ride on Storm Runner was after having ridden Maverick. I thought, "that's it? this is the great ride everyone is raving about?" Maverick is so much better than Storm Runner. But yeah, I do see the similarity. Maverick is sorta like Storm Runner on steroids.
Dang it. Now I want to plan another trip to CP, just to ride Maverick some more.
Had they been able to preserve the heartline roll on Maverick. OMG! I mean it's my #1 steel now (ahead of 4 B&M hypers, 2 Intamin hypers, Montu, DD, etc.), but I think it would have been a real contender for #1 on Mitch's poll with that heartline.

Can we please come up with a better simile for such an awesome coaster? Perhaps one that doesn't scream obese ACEr.
