From Cedar point:
Cedar Point’s newest addition for 2013 is GateKeeper, a 170 foot tall Wing Ringer Roller Coasters. Unlike Cedar Point’s other roller coasters, riders on Gate Keeper will sit next to the track, instead of above or below. Here are the details you need to know when planning your trip to Cedar Point about GateKeeper.
If possible, ride GateKeeper within the first 30 minutes of the park opening. If you are not able to get to the park before 9:30am. Due GateKeeper’s location at the front of the park, and being a popular new ride, the majority of guests will get in line first for GateKeeper. By returning in the mid to late afternoon, many others will have already experienced GateKeeper and will be enjoying other rides at this point.
Today Cedar Point is known for record breaking roller coasters and some of the most intense thrill rides in the world; however, this was not always the case for our beloved park. It once was a quaint beach resort known for the large groves of cedar trees that outlined the peninsula. Dating all the way back to 1870, Cedar Point first started as a bathing beach with small attractions and gradually turned in the Cedar Point we know today.
It’s tradition of being an old-fashion park and having the latest amusement rides makes Cedar Point unique from most parks. Today over three million people, from around the globe, visit Cedar Point every year finding themselves surrounded by it’s collection of roller coasters, rides, history, and natural beauty.This once tree covered peninsula is now one of the largest and most successful amusement parks in the world.
