Testing begins on Cedar Point’s new coaster

SANDUSKY, Ohio – Cedar Point says testing is under way on its new 170-foot tall roller coaster.

Officials at the park in Sandusky say the coaster trains ran for the first time last Thursday on the on the “winged” roller-coaster called GateKeeper.

A Cedar Point official tells The Blade newspaper in Toledo that the test rides will go on seven days a week for the next four weeks.

But before real people can get on, the first test rides will carry water-filled dummies.

Cedar Point’s new coaster is designed to make riders feel like they’re flying. The blue-steeled tubular coaster will have riders on seats that extend sideways from the track, with nothing above or below them.

The coaster will soar over a new main entrance while turning riders upside-down.
