NEW ROLLER COASTER REVIEW: Cedar Point's "Maverick"
Remember that crazy suspense building feeling when going up the first hill of the roller coaster with it's slow clink...clink...clink...? Yeah...they "fixed" that....you just zip right on up reallll smooth-like. It's kind of cool, but ruins some of the fun. There is a 95 degree drop (beyond vertical) that is crazy and it's got some awesome twists, turns and upside-down-ness. The waiting line is probably the worst part. You are in a semi-enclosed space with many strangers and zero fans. Not pleasant. Take ice water. Overall it was pretty awesome and worth the wait. (But the Raptor is still my favorite!)
I was amazed to realize that there are a lot of people out there that have never been to Cedar Point...I just thought it was something that everyone (within driving distance of Ohio) did. I've been there there probably about 7 times and still love it!
