Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

So basically there were about as many rides open as there would be in peak season with 15 mph winds.

As he (^^) said, Maverick is opening on Saturday, May 26th!

The water bombs thing sounds cool! I wonder if they just get close or if you will get wet.

 

EDIT- The s-curve sure doesn't look very heartlined.....

I guess we just need a better picture.

I'm really supprised that the state would let them open the ride with only 3 days of testing. They must be running this thing around the clock until then to get their cycles up.

^^ With no riders you can cycle pretty fast. i think the state only requires 100 cycles without breakdown or something before opening, but can't remember exactly as it's been a few years since I was a ride operator at KI. At Beast, each train could do 11 circuits in an hour (If there are no stupid guests with problems enterring and exiting the train ), and with 3 trains that equates to 33 circuits, so only 3 hours and a few minutes to get 100 cycles, or only a full day to get 100 cycles on each train, so it's very doable.

Damn! You all beat me to the news!

 

My roommate works as a freelance audio tech for the park, and he called me a few hours ago. He told me they had been testing Maverick all day, and then he got a call on the radio that it would officially open Saturday!

 

Woo hoo! Only a few more weeks 'til I ride!

I'm going to close this thread since it's going to open. Please move all Maverick discussion into the main thread.

That's great, I commend them for the quick "recovery". I'm surprised it wasn't that "well, we could count it as an inversion, but then they'd have to change it at RCDB" element after the launch and the new s-bend.

The CP blog said the first 3,000 riders on Memorial Day weekend will get T-shirts, and the first 500 Joe Cool riders on Memorial Day will get a free pullover fleece. All right. The decision to get some rides on Raptor first has been trumped.

Cedar Point never ceases to amaze me with their customer service skills. Given Maverick's delay in opening is only 2 weeks, they certainly did not have to provide such a lucrative give-away.

 

This is why CP is my favorite vacation destination.
