We screwed up the engineering of the heart line roll so we will take an extra month to open the ride and leave it out!

The REAL Zinger were those Extra "S Curve" Sections of Track that were on-site, the spare Support Columns, and the Rails & Ties that would be needed to create that short section of transition track before the S-Curve.

Yes Maverick opened 2 Weeks Late, after Cedar Point and Inta-Ride Tried everything to keep the Heartline Roll, but couldn't make it work, Replaced the Heartline Roll with the S-Curve, and began their Testing and Final Ohio Department of Agriculture Ride Safety Division Mandatory 100 Hour Testing to receive their Operation Tag. Wink Aren't all those coincidences the Real Zinger? Laugh
