The ride is being built on the site of the old Disaster Transport and will be one of the first things people will notice upon entering the park. A wing coaster is one where riders sit on either side of the track, giving them a whole new perspective of flying. These rides have become very popular and Cedar Point's is going to be a doozy, with the longest drop of any coaster of its kind at 164 feet, a 360-degree spiral, speeds of up to 67 mph, and tons of cool drops and loops. Also featured on Gatekeeper is the first of its kind Zero-G Roll, in which riders fly through two support towers right near the main entrance of the park.
The Zero-G Roll
Gatekeeper looks like its going to be another classic among one of the most classic collections of coasters around, and I only wish I were going there this summer to give it a try. In the meantime, check out a preview of this new monster:
