It's payback time, b*tch.
My boy and I are getting married at Cedar Point in the fall, and Maverick is going to be our "First Ride" (instead of a First Dance)!
Also, I cannot believe someone would vote on a ride based on the "fanboy" factor. There are "fanboys" at EVERY amusement park. The fact that someone would discriminate on a ride based on its fans is ridiculous. If someone is trully unhappy with the voting, get out and promote who you want to win to the respectable people (ei another fan website).
Overall, I just want to see the best ride win, and, in my opinion, that ride is Maverick.
Also when I hear Maverick, I think of Sarah Palin.
I'm voting for The Beast. Maverick is an absolute top notch ride...one of the best in the country. It's a blast to ride, and I completely understand if you vote for it. I on the other hand, have been going to Kings Island since I could walk. Riding The Beast at least a few times per visit is a tradition, including the one of a kind ride in the dark. After 30+ years, it still delivers from the first drop to the best helix in the world at the end.
If I could only ride one of these two the rest of my life, I'd have no problem making the choice. The Beast all the way.
And Derek - I'm shocked that you'd call me "Disney boy". I had a blast at Cedar Point, but Maverick just isn't my bag.
Joshua, you have a point about the voting last year, but as pointed out in the past, if it hadn't been like that, I'd never have found this site, so.... Take the good (I hope!) with the bad!
BTW, it's not a rise with me, just a little friendly trash talk. What would the tournament be without it.
The tie is fitting, it's pretty hard to decide between the two.
The Beast is a record holder and its landscape should make it #1 :)
Well, that's Internet commenting for ya.
