   Cedar Point is back to breaking records, this time with what will be GateKeeper, a Wing Coaster that will be manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard.  The ride will reach a maximum height of 170 feet tall, and will reach speeds up to 67 miles per hour! 
   According to the ride's official webpage, the ride will feature a Wing-Over Drop, an Immelmann Inversion, a Camelback Hill, a Flat Spin, a Zero-G Roll, an Inclined Dive Loop, an In-Line Roll, a Camelback Drop, and a Spiral turn.
   GateKeeper's station will sit on the former location of Disaster Transport and Space Spiral, and the ride will span across the Main Midway and will flip directly over the Main Gates, bringing a new meaning to a "front gate statement."
   Many of the roller coasters at Cedar Point hold records, or have broken records when they debuted, and GateKeeper is no different. The ride will break the records for the longest drop and ride length of all of the Wing Coasters, and will also be the fastest Wing Coaster in existence.
   GateKeeper is expected to debut in May of 2013, and will be a $30,000,000 investment for the park.

       I am the webmaster and lone blogger for Point Place.  I started the Unofficial Cedar Point Blog on September 11, 2010, and it was hosted through Blogger.  In February 2012, the blog was transferred to Weebly, and was transformed into Point Place.  I enjoy going to and researching Cedar Point, taking care of my dog, Rosco, and listening to Lady Gaga and collecting Lady Gaga items.  I'm glad to serve as one of few Cedar Point bloggers around.
