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?



I'm not really sure... maybe it was just becuase my whole group was waiting for front and I didn't feel like waiting at the exit? Haha, I'm not really sure. Well anyhow, I enjoyed it a lot in the front so now I can't wait till next summer to ride in the back!

Do they still have someone appointing seats or do they let you choose where to sit now?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Here we go again. That's probably a topple tower.

When we rode last week we could sit anywhere we wanted to. We made sure that we had both a front and back row ride.

It was awesome, my new #3. It only lets up if it slows in the tunnel (which it did for my ride) and you don't feel the trims after the launch at all. And I can't forget: :airtimer: They appointed our seats the other day, we got the back!

FYI, if you just ask, they'll give you the seat you want 99% of the time.

OT: Erik, I looked for a supposed Whataburger location in Clearwater last week... to no avail. :(

This ride was way over-hyped and total let down.

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

Maybe they are not there yet, though Clearwater is famous for having the original Hooters. I have 2 Whataburgers within 5 miles from my house. :airtime:

Yeah... I KNOW. :lol:

I looked it up in the phone book one of the nights last week (yeah, that's how much I wanted one), looked up and down that road, with no luck. :(

I think I passed by the original Hooters... but I still like the Winghouse better. :P
