Maverick.. FAIL or not?

Sunday, October 11, 2009 6:10 PM

Ok.... I know this is one of the most infamous forum starters on the internet.. but I just wanna know everyone's angles on the maverick heartline issue and maverick in general.. If you youtube the animations you can see that the ride has a lot more theming and etc. than the real thing.. I personally think it was an intaminFAIL.. (however i have not ridden it) between the lack of themign and the lack of heartline.. but I just want other people's opinions. PLEASE, no fighting people..

It's not a failure at all it is one of the most popular rides in the park. The line is consistently a long wait during the day. It is personally one of my favorite coasters at Cedar Point. I don't really see what the point of this topic is.

Your logic is a fail. Intamin has nothing to do with the ride's theming (or lack thereof).

Intamin had nothing to do with the lack of theming. I'm happy that they caught the heartline issue early, before the ride opened.

I haven't rode it yet, so I can't comment on if the ride is "Fail" or not, but everyone seems to really like it. Cedar Point consistently fails when it comes to theming, imho. Just look at Paddlewheel, a ride that is supposed to be all about theming. Each year, it loses more and more.

Depends on how you measure success. Given that none of us have the data that would let us see a lot of the outcomes, most of what we can do is speculate. However we don't have to speculate about this -

i can't blame intamin for the lack of theming, but i can blame them for the lack of heartline.. it may still be a good ride, but like i said.. i haven't ridden it.. besides.. how do you spend millions of dollars on a project like this to get a simple thing like the heartline wrong.. when those pics came out i was like wtf.. HOW are they gonna do that? well.. they can't. But if I can come to that conclusion idk how intamin didn't. i just think the heartline makes that section of the ride dead i guess.

That section of the ride is far from dead. The ride is a win.

Here's why this thread is closing now:

  • You just signed up.
  • You haven't been on the ride.
  • You know up front you're going to get a reaction. This is known as trolling.
  • Your lack of punctuation and grammar is hard to read.
