Cedar Point, in Sandusky, Ohio, has a new roller coaster — and it looks awesome!
It’s called Gatekeeper, and it’s the first new roller coaster at the Point since 2007. It uses a winged, center rail approach that is supposed to give riders a sense of flying as they plunge, twist, and turn at speeds of almost 70 miles per hour — which is faster than you can legally drive on most Ohio highways. The video above shows the coaster during its early testing phase, when it was running at significantly reduced speed, and it still looks like a fantastic ride. The story linked above includes a video showing the Gatekeeper today, when it was opened to some lucky members of the public for a sneak peek.
I’d be willing to wait in line for an hour or more for a chance to take a crack at this one.
