SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Rollercoaster lovers, rejoice: a new, $30 million rollercoaster called GateKeeper is open at Ohio’s Cedar Point. The park in Sandusky opened for the season on Saturday.
GateKeeper is designed to mimic flight. It’s two-minutes, 40-seconds of flips, drops and spirals. The coaster travels at speeds of up to 67 mph — park officials say it has set world records for the tallest drop and longest track of any winged rollercoaster. On a winged coaster, riders sit on either side of the track with nothing above their heads or below their feet.
