We shall see
and the only impression ive ever got from you is that you're an elitist who uses his 'in the know' status to talk down to a couple thousand coaster geeks.
I've read many posts on this board in the past, Jeff’s included, and been left with this impression. It is sometimes difficult to know someone's tone from a written message, so I try and give people the benefit of the doubt.
I respect the amount of knowledge that many of the enthusiasts on this board exhibit in their discussions. However, a little courtesy and tact go along way in greasing the wheels of a society (on-line or otherwise).
IMO, yes, and no. It really would only have a benefit if it was done occasionally, or better yet, rarely. If it was done for 'every secret', then it would become blaise, and then develop a negative connotation.
The point about 'the Beast' as being hidden is very well taken!
Ride looks like a blast... Im just concerned over the use of the brakes following the launch on that hill following... That's IF they are there, I can't clearify 100%. If in use, ill be kinda curious to why they have them if they can just adjust the LIM power...
We shall see
I noticed that on the video, it's interesting.

"Maverick" will be the park's 17th roller coaster and is described by the park as a "$21 million terrain-hugging coaster". Crazy price tag if you ask me. Still looks like an awesome ride. Can't wait to get to the point next year! :)
-They're describing the two corkscrews as a single element called the "Twisted Horseshoe Roll".
-105 ft. lift hill powered by LSM's.
-95 degree drop (drop produces maximum speed of 57 mph).
-70 mph LSM launch.
About what looks to be some great themeing. The park said that Maverick will be, "the most heavily themed coaster we have ever done".

BTW, that inline/zeroG roll is the bomb! I'm stoked about this ride, BIGTIME.
