How many train rides does it take to get enough Maverick footage? ;)
Great video Gonch.

Believe it or not, Neuski, we only took one train ride.
I did warn everyone that we might be riding that thing around for a while though.

LG, when I downloaded the music, you're listed as the creator. Being the music/techno geek that I am, what did you use?

Where is the guys head? lol
Anywho, Nice video and pictures!

Ha! I didn't even notice the 'headless rider' - too funny!
Intamin Fan - I use all kinds of music progs. Acid, Cakewalk, Sound Forge, etc - whatever helps get sound from point A to point B.
(I did the fun CB Podcast intro music too :) )

Gonch, what was the overall reactions from the general public from the ride? Looking at the facial expressions on the pictures it seems like most people are really enjoying it, but some don't look too happy.

Fantastic video! I'll admit I had doubts when the HR was taken out, but it looks like Maverick is a definite winner! And I really like the music, too! Thumbs up!

That ride looks wicked! I've been hearing nothing but good things about Maverick. Is there anything negative about this ride yet? I can't wait to ride it later this year when I head up to CP!

Looks awsome. To bad I couldn't ride it on May 16th like I had planned. Have to go July 1st when Canada gets a holiday.
This looks like it would be one of the best coasters if there was no OTSR. I HATE intamin OTSR found on Kingda Ka and Storm Runner. OH MY, they suck. They dig into my collar bone sooooo bad.

"It seems like most people are really enjoying it, but some don't look too happy."
Actually, I didn't look to happy in my on-ride photo, but was totally soaking the ride in. It just catches you really off guard, the speed, the speed of transitions, and the forces give you this kind of "what the ***" looking face, but it's incredible!

That's another great video, Gonch. Great job!

Thanks guys (and gals :) ), glad y'all liked the video.
Gonch, what was the overall reactions from the general public from the ride?
All I know is when the trains returned to the station and were met with the standard, "Welcome back riders, how was your ride?" that the station erupted with cheers every single time. Not just a polite smattering of noise, but outright enthusiastic, excited cheering that you could easily hear from the midways surrounding the ride.

"More Maverick fun!"
It's the new
"Another look at..."
