Cedar Point announced in 2013 that would become the latest theme park to install a Bolliger & Mabillard Wing Rider
Known as GateKeeper, the park's new roller coaster was the longest ride of its type, and the third to open in the US. It features the longest drop of any B&M Wing Rider model, and dominates the main entrance area of Cedar Point.
GateKeeper is similar in style to other "winged" coasters such as X-Flight at Six Flags Great America, with riders being seated on wings on either side of its trains. These race around a 4,164-foot circuit, hitting a top speed of 64 miles per hour.
At its tallest point, GateKeeper stands some 170-feet-tall. Its circuit featurse 6 inversions, including a dive loop, an Immelmann loop, a giant corksrew, two zero-g rolls and an inclined dive loop. The ride's track is teal-colored, with white supports, and comes into close contact with buildings and portals in the park's entrance gates to provide a "near-miss" sensation.
