When Maverick was announced, I must admit that I was a bit skeptical. Why would Cedar Point build such a small ride after building so many world-record setting coasters? After building the world's first 200-foot, 300-foot, and 400-foot-tall coasters, why build something so much smaller? I honestly wondered if building a short coaster like Maverick was a poor decision.
But I didn't need to worry. The park made the right decision to build this fantastic ride. Maverick is simply breathtaking! It is one of my favorite coasters, and it packs a wild punch in spite of its small stature.
