    Maverick at Cedar Point...

    is finally here

    I was a little underwhelmed when the concept shot first leaked, but the video's make me VERY excited to ride this next year!

    That looks awesome! Not too much of a thrill ride, so it's just my type, if I ever get around to going there.

    Speed and airtime, my kind of coaster!

    However, the drop is a little short for my taste...and I have to say if they are going to keep it so low to the ground, then I don't think it should have really had that 1st drop at all...it seems too tall for the ride...but still just too short to be a great first drop.

    I dunno, I kind of like that it's not 'that' bit. Hopefully it kicks *** and will go to show that bigger isn't always better.

    Can I also be the first to say I'm very glad the "non-Disney" parks section is finally seeing some significant traffic.

    Oh no doubt, but it just seems like the 1st drop doesn't fit the ride.

    I think it does, it's all about over exaggeration with this one. The 95° drop is just another exaggerated thing (like the near-inversion sure to spark some "Is it/isn't it" debates among coaster dorks)

    My mom emailed me about this over the weekend. I want to go to Cedar Point sooo bad I can almost taste it! I haven't been there since 1990 and I miss it!
