This roller coaster is named the Maverick, its located at the Cedar Point theme park in Sandusky, Ohio, USA. The Maverick is a steel rollercoaster that covers 4,450 feet or 1,360 meters, along its course there are many intense and adrenalin pumping features but we will get to that in a bit! The Maverick was built and designed by a company called Werner Stengel, this company has made hundreds of roller coasters that are dotted around the world. This particular coaster is one of their better ones, it has a height of 105 feet or 32 meters, a drop of 100 feet or 30 meter and reaches a whopping speed of 70mph or 110kmh.
The Maverick was the seventeenth roller coaster to be built at the Cedar Point theme park, and is the fourth to feature inversions. It has a staggering drop of 100 feet as mentioned before but what I didn’t tell you is that the drop has an angle of 95 degrees making its 95% of a sheer straight drop towards the ground.
The Maverick coaster has a ride time of approximately two minutes and thirty seconds, it can provide the same thrills and adrenalin rushes to 1200 riders every hour! Maverick also has 6 trains running so there’s never a long wait before you get to try this amazing machine.
For those of you that don’t know much about this roller coaster, you should probably know that this amazing attraction was scheduled to open on the 12th May, 2007 but was delayed as testing proved that the heartline roll element was causing too much stress to the trains, this delayed the opening till May 26th, 2007.
If you are looking for a roller coaster that is never racking, adrenalin rushing, underwear changing monster, that no one should miss out on, then you have found the right one. This coaster has been known to make people black out so be ready for pretty much anything!
