Maverick is not a POS. It is one of the greatest steel coasters out there. Not sure which Maverick you rode...
Boulder Dash was the only good roller coaster.

POV looks cool! Seems to be filled with plenty of twists/turns and a couple/few plunges for an added rush.

Probably someone who thinks because the restraint hits their neck that its a terrible ride. Or is somehow "rough". That ride has pretty extreme forces, I can assure you that. The negatives, however brief, are pretty extreme over the drop and the positives out of the tunnel in that turn are pretty extreme too.

Oh well, I wont lose sleep because of one persons opinion. However crazy it is.

I feel like this ride ends after the last bunny hill. The rest is too stretched out and meanders. Before it though, looks fun.

love yeah, hunt that Cheetah.

I kinda agree with Real about the length, but hey: better to be longer and a little pointless at the end than to have no extra end at all.

Anyway, if they can hit the theme that was produced in the Virtual tour, then this should be amazing.

Eh I wouldn't judge it based on the POV. I kinda doubt the first turn will be shaped like that and it's probably an overbank.

Then again Blue Fire (I know it isn't intamin) has a turn like that and maybe they're trendy now or something.

Yeah, that first turn is a little weird. I doubt it will be like that and I hope it will end up as a overbank.

^^ No price has been released that I know of.

Wow that looks really...shitty. :(

What's up with that turn? Don't tell me that is the first turn...Oh jeez.

And how the hell are those supports supposed to hold up that track when a train full of people are riding over it?! Let alone hold up the track without anything riding on it? xD
"Don't be a disability"... yep, still keeping that. :P

they probably have it all calculated if they didn't think it would hold up why would they put them like that?

This. The supports may not look structurally sound, but Intamin would not be stupid enough to build a ride without safe supports.

I literally said "ew" when I saw this picture. My disappointment level just shot to the roof.
So, my friend came up to me the other day and asked if I wanted a frozen banana, and I said no, but I want a normal banana later, so... yea.
