The Old West Was Never This Wild.

Maverick acts more like a bucking bronco than a coaster. It’s a ride for the daring who want one of a kind thrills beyond the big hills. This terra coaster is packed with twists, corkscrews, launches, tunnels, and plenty of airtime, so saddle up for a ride wilder than the rodeo. The first launch of two gets you to the top of the first hill, which travels down and under at the steepest angle at Cedar Point 95 degrees. Only one airtime hill comes before the first ever Twisted Horseshoe Roll, two 360-degree corkscrew rolls of opposite direction separated by only a 180-degree banked curve. Next thing you know riders are in a pitch black tunnel getting launched 400 feet at 70 m.p.h. in 3 seconds. It still manages to catch riders by surprise at every bank and turn, even after being awarded the Golden Ticket Award for “Best New Ride in 2007”. There’s nothing wilder in the West than Maverick.
