First look: GateKeeper’s has a train added to the track



Eric Lapp (right) and Jeff Durbin (left) from Cedar Point’s maintenance division get their first look at a train on the track of the new GateKeeper roller coaster Friday at the 364-acre amusement park.  Riders on GateKeeper will fly through a wing-coaster record 4,164 feet of track along Lake Erie and across the park’s redesigned main entrance.  The ride will also set world records for the longest drop (165 feet), tallest inversion (170 feet), the most inversions (six) and fastest speed (67 miles per hour) of any wing coaster.  Cedar Point and GateKeeper open to the general public for the 2013 season May 11.
