New Construction Video for Cedar Point’s GateKeeper

Cedar Point’s highly anticipated new wing roller coaster GateKeeper is looking great. Last week, Cedar Point added this new construction update video.

Last year I was lucky enough to ride wing coasters Wild Eagle and X-Flight. They offered exciting, but smooth rides via their aerial maneuvers and exposed seating positions. Eventually, it’ll be fun to compare GateKeeper to these two, but I don’t know if I’ll make it to Cedar Point this year.

Cedar Point was smart to add the keyhole structures. Similar structures on X-Flight probably took that ride from an 8 to a 9. I also like the ride’s color scheme although I can’t imagine they had too many choices with so many coasters already populating the park’s skyline. That’s a good problem to have.

How do you think GateKeeper looks? Do you have plans to make it to Cedar Point this year? Props to Velkro who posted this on ThemeParkHype!
