This is my new favorite coaster! :b My very first ride was in the very back and man that drop was insane! My mom said she saw stars on that drop! The low to the ground turns were awesome, as was the ejector airtime hill that whipped you over. The 2 inversions were surprisingly fun with some airtime on them, especially the second one. Then comes the insane launch in the tunnel. Man that was sensory overload! The lights made me dizzy, and you shoot out into daylight again. The turn over the lake was fun, S-Bend was ok. but the 2 Stengel Dives were sweet, they literally pushed you to the side! Over another airtime hill and end brakes. Pure sex.

Spinach plus Tuna makes the taste of the paste!

So, I have to admit. My last day working on Maverick was two weeks ago, and already I miss the ride. I racked up 52 rides on it while working at the Point this summer, and I've realized it really is an amazing ride.

And to those of you that said hi to me this summer, I love you. Fill all the empty seats.

^Kinda creepy :lolr:
Thanks for doing an awesome job Jon! I saw you once but I didn't have a chance to say hi unfortunately. Hopefully I'll catch you at Cedar Point this summer, even if you aren't working on Maverick.

The patented Intamin Rattle. I find its not really high speed areas only, but high speed areas combined with some twisting of the wheel assembly. I dont notice it much in a straight line but when banking and taking it at higher speeds its just typical.

Much like MF's Super Intamin Rattle which makes it oh not so much fun.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

The Intamin rattle is so noticeable on Maverick, you can hear it when you stand on the midway. I noticed it about a month ago. It sure didn't take long!

The ride's still tons of fun. I rode it on Sunday.
I am out of ideas for what to write in this signature box.

Maverick is Awsome! Every inch of Maverick is Insane!!!!
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

I got to ride Maverick for my first time on the July 24 during the hotel special hours? I was there with camp and I rode front row. I really didn't enjoy it that much the first time since it hurt my neck. The next day I sprinted with one of my camp friends and we got on the 13rd ride of the day becuase we stopped sprinting for about 10 seconds to catch our breathe. We went front row again that day but for some reason I enjoyed the ride an incredibly large amount more this ride... I don't know why! I just did and it took my #1 coaster. Maverick is an amazing ride IMO.

Maverick is a back seat ride, though the front is still good.

Why didn't you ride in the back?
