Maverick Cedar Point, as the name suggests, is an unusual roller coaster, featuring big twists and turns and one of the steepest roller coaster drops around. Reaching a summit of 105 feet, this popular option among the Cedar Point roller coasters takes riders around sharp corners, down sharp drops, and through other thrilling maneuvers, such as a twisted horseshoe roll and a launch through a 400-foot dark tunnel.
At the time it was built, in 2007, the Maverick roller coaster was named the best new attraction in Amusement Today, a publication that highlights amusement parks. Reaching a top speed of 70 miles per hour, in the launch tunnel, Maverick Cedar Point is an exhilarating ride that lasts two and a half minutes.
While there are other rides at Cedar Point that top the height of the Maverick roller coaster, this unique coaster whisks riders away on an enthralling ride of high velocities and dizzying effects despite the low heights. All of the Cedar Point roller coasters and other thrill rides are what make this Ohio amusement park such a popular tourist destination, and the Maverick is always a popular choice. Other Cedar Point roller coasters that will thrill visitors include Top Thrill Dragster, Raptor, Wicked Twister, Mean Streak, and Mantis. Each of these rides offers its own variation on a traditional coaster ride.
