History and General InformationEdit

White Water Landing, a log flume ride at Cedar Point, was retired after the 2005 season, to make way for Cedar Point's newest roller coaster. Cedar Point had the name Maverick filed for trademark, heightening speculation for another roller coaster. During the 2006 season, supports for the new ride began to arrive in Cedar Point, and the park gave up hiding their new roller coaster. During the 2006 off-season, Maverick was constructed. On May 8, Cedar Point announced that the rides opening would by delayed from May 12 to May 26, as the heartline roll element needed to be replaced.

It was stated that the heartline roll put excessive stress on the trains and caused g-forces that would've put stress on the riders as well. With only one delay, Maverick opened to the public on May 26, 2007.
