SANDUSKY, Ohio –  Rollercoaster lovers, rejoice: a new, $30 million winged rollercoaster called GateKeeper will soon be open to the public at Ohio’s Cedar Point.

The park in Sandusky opens for the season Saturday.

GateKeeper is designed to mimic flight. It’s two-minutes, 40-seconds of flips, drops and spirals. The coaster is 4,164 feet long and travels at speeds of up to 67 mph — park officials say it has set world records for the tallest drop, longest track and most inversions 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.

Two of the park’s old rides, Disaster Transport and the Space Spiral, were taken down to make way for GateKeeper.
