Cedar Point broke coaster records yet again with their newest addition which opened in May of 2013.
Gatekeeper, a product of B&M, is the first Winged Coaster in a Cedar Fair park. The ride features a 170-foot tall hill sending riders flying at speeds of up to 62 MPH. Gatekeeper takes riders upside down five times and features a one of a kind fly over of the park's main entrance.
While most coasters manufactured by B&M have an extremely loud roar, Gatekeeper is much quieter because most of the coaster's steel is filled with sand.
