GateKeeper is a Bolliger & Mabillard wing coaster located at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, USA. Both Disaster Transport and Space Spiral (an Oobservation tower) were removed from the park to make room for the ride.

DesignEdit

GateKeeper is the tallest, fastest, and longest wing rider in the world.[1] The coaster itself is described as a “Front gate statement— a roller coaster that flies overhead, rolls and flies back— highly visible above guests entering the park." It also contains the highest inversion in the world.

Ride ExperienceEdit

GateKeeper layout

The train is hoisted up a 170 foot lift hill at a 40 degree angle. Once riders crest the top of the lift hill, the train will rotate 180 degrees to the right and the train will fall down the 164 foot "Wing Over Drop" reaching speeds of 67 mph. The coaster then rolls through an adjacent immelmann , and then coast over a 105' camelback hill. Followed by a "Giant Flat Spin" and through a Zero-G Roll—which includes two key-hole towers. At the bottom of the zero g roll, the train coasts through an inclined diving loop, then through an inline roll adjacent to the keyhole towers. The train continues through a mid-course brake-run, a camelback drop, a 360° helix, a small bunny-hop and then into the main brakes.
