    New Cedar Point Coaster Maverick Opening Delayed

    Maverick Opening Delayed
    Tuesday May 8, 1:05 pm ET
    May 10th Media Preview Cancelled


    SANDUSKY, Ohio, May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cedar Point announced today that the opening of Maverick, the park's 17th roller coaster, will be delayed until early June to make modifications to the coaster's steel track.

    The Media Preview of Maverick scheduled for Thursday, May 10 has been cancelled. The ride will not be in operation on Opening Day.

    The decision to delay the opening of Maverick was based on pre-opening tests and consultation with IntaRide, the manufacturer of the ride. Based on these discussions, it has been determined that three sections of steel track following the launch tunnel should be replaced.

    "We apologize to all of our guests for this inconvenience," said John Hildebrandt, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point. "This decision was made in the interest of improving the guest experience on the ride and to eliminate excessive stress on the trains."

    The modification process is already underway and the park hopes to open the ride by early June.

    It's an Intamin. To be expected.

    that's right .

    I'm not surprised . All Intamins have some delays to some Temporary Closure .

    And when this coaster open just expect just some closure for Technical Reasons like all Rocket Coasters from Intamin .

    I really need to get my butt back to Cedar Point. The newest coaster last time I was there was Magnum! I remember my best friend was too chicken to ride it.

    I was pretty annoyed when I read this yesterday, i'm going next week. At least I have a season pass, but I feel for the visitors who are going solely for this coaster.
