Check out this amazing photo compliments of Dave Morgan!! 

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

To me, it's not even so much that they changed the schedule. It happens, whatever. But I called Hotel Breakers literally 8 days ago because the website said there were no rooms available and said to c

I give Maverick a 7.5 out of 10. I think it is a good addition to the park. I wish they have better restraints on it though, restraints that have better ways to hang on. Nice maneuvers and good speed and thrills too.

 

Maybe they can redo them and make them like Raptor's?

Conventional OTSRs would be complete overkill for a ride like Maverick, and would probably also kill most of the airtime. On the other hand, I can't really see conventional lap bars working with all the inversions and 95 degree drop. I think Maverick's restraints are good for the kind of ride it is. Although it has inversions, at it's heart Maverick is more like a non-looping sit down.

^I don't think the inversions or the vertical drop would have been negative reasons for lap bars. I'd be more concerned about the wicked quick turns/transitions it makes, particularly the set of esses after the first drop, and a few of the turns between the launch and the brakes.

 

I just feel like they should redesign the top of the OTSRs for this ride. If you aren't gripping on to the top of them (where they say you aren't supposed to hold), then you get a severe neck jab during the insanely quick turns. That's my only issue with it.

 

Anyway, I give the ride about a 9 out of 10. I loved it. I'm just pretty sure I'm going to hate it in about five years after it has aged some.

Guys..it probably wont be a coaster. They're hyping us all up for nothing, just like with the dirt pile. So before you get all worked up, remember you got a 21 million dollar roller coaster last year, and odds are you wont get another this year.

Hmm. Kitten out of the bag. Small spaces. Something lacking but would get attention and not cost to much for an add on.

 

Wild Mouse?

 

Either that or a red light district. Hurray cat house. So how would they declare the spec's for that ride. "wink. "Whole new meaning to you must be this tall to ride"

 

Sorry forgot this was a Cedar Point thread. Or it could be an Aquatraxwildmousefloorlesswoodengigadivingflyerrocket coaster.

From the bottom of the same blog post:

We’ll keep you on track with our plans for the 2008 season as soon as we’re ready to let the kittens out of the bag.
I wouldn't say they aren't getting anything just yet.
