Maverick is one of Intamin’s six blitz coasters. Here’s what I thought of it!
Maverick is 4,450 ft long, which is pretty long, especially for a launched coaster.
The height is only 105 ft tall which isn’t very tall compared to most coasters. Luckily, the steep 95 degree drop angle makes up for it!
Maverick has a top speed of 70 mph which is somewhat fast, but it only hits this speed for about a second while coming off of the launch and into a set of trims.
Maverick runs 6 trains with 12 seats per train, resulting in a pretty good capacity of 1,200 riders per hour. Even with Maverick’s great capacity, it still tends to have over an hour wait, even on uncrowded days.
Maverick has over-the-shoulder restraints that are similar to Intimidator 305’s at King’s Dominion. They’re not too uncomfortable, but with Maverick’s strong forces, you still come off the ride with a somewhat sore body.
Maverick is VERY intense. It has quick, sharp transitions that throw you from side to side, up and down, and all over! Lots of negative and positive G’s!
The ride is very smooth with no rattle at all! It glides nicely across the track, but the snappy transitions may give the illusion that it is rough.
Lots of great theming in the queue and onride, like the canyon that most of the ride is twisting through.
Maverick’s horseshoe rolls are perfect. You glide through them so perfectly. Now, the best part of this coaster is the intense ejector airtime. There are 4 major ejector airtime moments throughout Maverick that throw you into your restraint!
Maverick is such a high thrill ride that it can be hard to enjoy, but I enjoyed it very much!
Maverick is such an amazing coaster! It has a perfect mix of lateral G’s, negative G’s, and positive G’s, and sits at my #3 spot!
