Call me stupid but if Maverick were to have Aqua Track Trains then wouldn't they have to be extremly elevated off the track to go through the Twisted Horeshoe Roll and also. I personally think that adding the Aqua Track Cars would make the ride much more intresting. And they should made a very odd seating of arrangment of 3 in a row for 4 rows but that would screw up families of 4, the 'typical' american family! Anyways I think that this mystery is solved but we can never prove it because Intamin will never announce it.

Keep in mind that the Aqua Trax train never actually does come in contact with the water. Matterhorn's bobsleds have more contact than Atlantis does.

I don't know about this Robb. From this picture you posted it sure looks like the car comes in contact with water? I know it doesn't plunge into a big pool of water or anything, but wouldn't that be the same as if there was rain on the track. I'd have to agree with what someone else said that it is CF policy to close the rides due to the Magnum accident.


:roll: Ugh, that's not what I meant.

THANK YOU WES for actually understanding what I meant!!!

Yes of course there is water all around being that it is build in a lake, but I meant that it doesn't have a "water element" like a splashdown or anything traditional of a water coaster or a water ride. The only 'water element' is when someone from the ride sticks their arm out to spray the water from the fountains. Only then does it come in contact with the train (See Elissa's photos above) and if you aren't sitting in front of someone who puts their hand out, you don't actually get wet! I thought I had already explained this. Must have been a language barrier I guess.

I understood it. I wonder if there was ever a 6 eyed dragon in the initial plans.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Mr. Cedar Point guy takes a trip to Lotte World and takes a ride on Atlantis Adventure. He goes to Intamin and says, "Hey! I really liked that Aquatrax in Lotte World, and we'd like one over at Cedar Point, but we don't want those weird looking trains. Oh yeah, we have to break some kind of record and include gimmick after gimmick."

And thus, Maverick was born. :)

Ask me about being a pathological liar!!

^That reminds me of riding Maverick at Coastermania and a few members from CP management asked me what I thought of Maverick. They gave me a confused/disgusted look when I said it was just "OK."
