New Roller Coaster Set To Debut At Cedar Point In 2013
I have to admit, I’m not a roller coaster fan, although I ride my share when I hit Cedar Point or Michigan’s Adventure… Even though I have not been to either in years!
Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, will be getting a new “winged” coaster in 2013. The GateKeeper will peak at 170-feet tall and reach a top speed of 64 miles per hour while traveling the length of 4,164 feet.
I’ll pass, I’m not a coaster enthusiast for that reason. But I’m sure I’ll be forced to ride it.
Winged coasters allow pairs of riders to sit on either side of a track with open air above and below them kind of like riding on an airplane! I’m already not interested! When it opens, the GateKeeper will be the world’s longest winged coaster and feature the longest drop (164 feet) of any coaster of its type.
Check out the video of what the ride will look like below.
