Cedar Point GateKeeper to Begin Test Phase

With a completed track and the arrival of its first train, Cedar Point’s newest roller coaster, GateKeeper, is expected to enter into its testing phase within the next few weeks, The Morning Journal reports.
Karpinski Engineering provided electrical engineering and mechanical engineering on hydraulic systems for the coaster.

The coaster’s 4,164-ft track is now complete, and the last two trains are expected to arrive in March and April. The winged roller coaster — which suspends riders from the car — will reach heights of 170 feet high and speeds of 67 miles per hour during rides. It’s slated to break seven winged rollercoaster records — such as tallest drop, longest track, most inversions, and tallest inversion.

The coaster is expected to be operational when Cedar Point opens May 11.
