Frontier Town

Roller coaster


LSM terrain coaster

Initially mocked for its "small" statistics after the era of 200, 300, and 400 foot monsters, Maverick uses its size to its advantage, slaloming through Wild West canyons, hopping over bunny hills, and accelerating around helices. Over time, it's become even more famous than its predecessors, and is now considered a classic.

Fun, Snappy Ride with Long Lines

This coaster is definitely the epitome of a wild, out of control horseback ride. Between the intense negative g's, close to the ground twists, and quick, snappy transitions, this is an excellently paced steel beast. The best part is the 95 degree first drop, especially in the back row. The launch tunnel is also a lot of fun. However, this ride typically has the longest lines of any coaster in the park, and even has lines longer than Dragster and Millennium. It often has 1 to 1 1/2 hour waits. Also, the restraints can cause some headbanging, so keep your head back, lean into the turns, and hold onto the restraints about shoulder level. This is a fun, adrenaline filled ride that never lets up until the very end.

Maverick...well named

This ride is great from start to finish. After riding it, I felt like it was very well named. The back and forth and changes in speed, was like riding a wild horse (not that I have done that, but what I imagine it would be like). It's fast and quick and unpredictable. Love the ride.

Great ride

Maverick is an amazing coaster, especially the unexpected indoor launch. It is a truly brilliant rollercoaster, the water effects are amazing and the swooping side to side is very intense and fun!
