If not what would you compare it to?if anything.
Intimidator 305 the tallest most hated coaster nobody has ever ridden...
Thats why I asked if the restraints on KK were the same, because I plan on making a trip there, and was wondering how to 'ride' it. Hands up like ttd or, force to hold on so that the neck, back doesn't hurt.
I don't like Maverick's restraints, it has too many quick changes in direction for them to be comfortable for me. I am 6'1".
Maybe after I get a front-row ride on Mavy I'll feel differently?
In fact, I even made comments a couple of times about how surprised I was to see how much it was up when I was there.
I fear that Fahrenheit is going to be the same way.
Well I can't speak for these mysterious "so called experts" but I hope you're wrong ;)
I'm sure it's entirely possible that someone with an anti-CP bias might artificially rank Maverick lower simply because it's at Cedar Point or, conversely claim they would rank it higher had it been built at another park. In my eyes such a person has zero integity.
In my opinion each ride should be judged on only one variable: the ride experience. All other variables shouldn't factor in...not the park it resides at, not the crew that operates it, not the manufacturer or engineer responsible for it, not even for the special way a park might run it during an event.
Using my recent ballot for Mitch's wood poll if Knoebels' Phoenix was built at any other park and run it exactly as it runs in Elysburg it would still rank as my #1 Wood. My #2 ranking of Voyage is based on what happens from the moment you hit the lift to the moment you hit the final brakes and nothing more.
Likewise, move SOB (the wood coaster I rank dead last at #201) to Knoebels or Holiday World or Indiana beach or any other park and I would still rank dead last if operated in the same manner as at King's Island. The only way I change Phoenix's, Voyage's, and SOB's ranking is if their ride experiences change.
Just my .02cents....YMMV.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe if Maverick was built at a small park such as, Lake Compounce or Indiana beach it would be ranked way higher than most, "so called" experts rank it.
While I agree with Moosh's points, I don't think anyone can answer this question definitively until the steel results come out. For all we know, Maverick could be the new #1 steel coaster.
