This 4,400-foot-long Intamin coaster has a LSM "lift" hill and a LSM launch in a tunnel underneath the station. The first hill is 105 feet tall and drops at a 95 degree angle. The coaster includes several airtime hills and 2 inversions; Maverick originally was supposed to have 3 inversions, but the heartline roll was taken out (It put lots of stress on the trains) leaving Maverick with 2 inversions.


This is such a great coaster, intense and memorable. One of the best coasters in the country. 10/10
Best in the world. Just so so amazing. 10/10
Felt like it may have been a bit to hyped up, the twists and turns were a very forceful to the point where it'd whack my head on the restraint things (while not as bad as it sounds, it wasn't that great). Great speed and some nice inversions though...
This is the best roller coaster I have ever been on! It provides all the thrills, but in a more compact form. You get a little of everything that allows it to be thrilling, but not too intense. It is a coaster that hits all the marks! Plus, it is perfect for you bigger sized coaster fans out there!
Best Roller Coaster I have ever been on. Completely unexpected aspects.
Crazy things happen on this ride. Love that so many thrills can happen on a coaster than does not have a big drop. Only negative? Perhaps the longest line in the park at times.
Maverick is almost the ideal coaster. The ride has a variety of elements, giving it moments with good airtime, strong forces, high speeds, and inversions. The ride is long, but there isn't a dull bit of track in the coaster. The first part of the ride is thrilling, but it isn't until the second that you realize how intense this deceptively small coaster actually is. And even though the ride is intense, it isn't so intense that it can't be ridden again and again. If there is a fault of this ride, it is that you can receive some pretty painful neck chops if you aren't paying attention or don't know what to expect, but after one ride it shouldn't be too difficult to avoid this. I absolutely consider Maverick a top five coaster, and it is my favorite ride at Cedar Point.
Amazing ride on this Intiman gem. Two great launches. A very good drop on the first hill and great curves on this very quick coaster. No waiting for this coaster either. On a very nice un-crowed day at the Point.
What a ride!!! Wow! From the fast rising lift hill to the final launch, Maverick is definitely a ride that lives up to expectations. That first drop is amazing as you are flung out of your seat, and race recklessly through the rest of the twisted course, with the nearby bay on your left hand side. And I remember yelling “Wait for it! Wait for it!” to my family as we slowed in the tunnel prepping for the launch halfway through the ride. What an exhilarating experience. I had high hopes but Maverick still managed to impress me. 9-Outstanding.
One of a kind. Super fun!
