The Cedar Point & Lake Erie Railroad passes next to Maverick during its two-mile trip around the CP Peninsula.  Trains pass by many roller coasters and thrill rides during their tour of the peninsula.  They also go through Boneville, a western town inhabited by dozens of animatronic skeletons.  In one scene, the skeletons are shooting at each other.  In another scene, the characters attempt to douse a building that is literally on fire.  In 2006, a long section of the rails had to be relocated to make room for Maverick.
