    First Drop Fun Dead spots

    Gatekeeper is a very beautiful and fun ride that has good inversions and near miss elements. It does have some parts that feel forceless but overall isn’t boring. Probably my favorite wing coaster by B&M.

    Location Comfort Fun

    I rode this once back in 2014, and I remember having a positive experience on my ride. This was my first wing coaster, so it was exciting getting to ride in that laid back position while going through the big inversions. I don't remember anything about the specific elements, but I also don't remember noticing the dead spots towards the end, though that could be because I used to not pay attention to those things. I may be overrating it with 4.5 stars, but i'll have to go back to experience it again. As of now, this was an awesome unique coaster for me.

    Good hangtime and a lot of fun to look at, but it is easy to get stapled.

    First Drop Layout Rattle Harness

    Recently, I had a ride on Gatekeeper on a left inside seat. That ride, I experienced one of the worst rattles ever. The layout itself is cool, but that rattle was insane. This thankfully has only happened on 1 of my many rides on this ride, but it was enough to bring it down a bit.

    An absolutely gorgeous, butter smooth B&M with an amazing location and some of the best near-miss keyholes in the game. It would be fair to describe this ride as a bit lacking in the force department, but it's still an iconic ride with some neat elements packed into its layout.

    I've been critical of wide B&M trains not being able to roll particularly snappily on loads of rides before. Gatekeeper (nearly) proves that theory wrong. It still rolls relatively slowly, but the positive G and fantastic location still make for a fun ride flirting on the edge of intensity. This is absolutely everything the Swarm failed to be. Major shout out to the CP maintenance crews; apparently the ride had completely stalled due to very heavy gusts the Saturday before we arrived; yet we were on it by the Monday and nobody would have known any different. I would suggest if the ride has any problem, it is the 7/8ths course brake; at which point the ride is basically over. The final drop and helix don't add anything, other than avoid a long straightaway at the point the ride has otherwise ran out of altitude and ideas.

    This is my second favorite B&M Wing coaster. Gatekeeper is a really great wing coaster and is really huge. The layout is fantastic with several Inversions throughout including two interacting with the keyholes above the fron hate allowing for some great near miss elements. The ride is incredibly smooth as well. The only negative is the ride didn’t feel too forceful. Both Thunderbird and Wild Eagle felt more intense.

    Airtimes First Drop Hangtime

    An incredible warmup or cooldown ride, GateKeeper gives insane hangtime on the inverting drop, strong positives on the pullout, then some great floater air and some solid zero g moments through the keyholes. Worth the wait for the front, and if you're riding with a partner, make sure both of you get the chance to experience an outside seat.

    Gatekeeper is an awesome wing coaster. It’s fairly tame, but still exciting for coaster lovers, and the inversions have amazing hangtime. It’s smooth and fast, and has good pacing. The drop gives a nice floating sensation. The best part is the zero-g roll through the keyhole, which has a convincing headchopper and great hangtime as well. This is one of my favorites at Cedar Point!

    First Drop Capacity Location Harness Discomfort Airtimes

    Gatekeeper is known to be a popular ride at cedar point, but not a favorite. Many people have different opinions about this ride, but I’m gonna give my own. The layout is pretty cool and stuff, having the head of some mystic bird on the front of the train and going through the gates at the entrance of the park. My favorite part about the ride is the first drop. The first drop has a little inversion before it plummets down at a fast speed. The inversions of this coaster are kinda slow and long compared to other coasters and I suggest that people who get dizzy easily when it comes to inversions should not ride. The restraints on this coaster are very unusual and are very tight, which makes it uncomfortable. Also, you will barely see the track at all if you don’t sit in the front, so it’ll be a blind ride most of the time. Lastly, after the inversions, the ride will come to a brake and will have an unreasonable ending to it. Going in a circle very slowly, probably just to give it more length.

    Gatekeeper surprised me with how much I enjoyed it, so much that I went back in line for a second ride! Its beautiful setting at the front gate of Cedar Point — which I disappointingly never used in any of my two-day stay — and along the beach only improves what is a very good coaster on its own. My favorite moment has to be the dive drop, because hanging upside down for what felt like an eternity ended up as a great start to an enjoyable ride. While it may not have many G forces, there is a decent moment of air on the so-called “airtimeless hill” before the massive corkscrew. However, after this ride, I began to garner a loathing of the B&M vest restraints which I had not understood others’ hatred for — until I rode Gatekeeper. Overall, though, this is a really fun coaster and for me it is my #3 at Cedar Point; just behind Millennium Force and Maverick.

    Inversions Fun Smoothness Dead spots

    Gatekeeper is a super fun coaster just because of the hang time, and how huge it feels next to the beach and over the entrance. It's a gorgeous coaster on and off ride. The hangtime and near misses are great, and every inversion is fantastic. Unfortunately the "airtime" hill is forceless, but that's the only dead spot. Great iconic coaster otherwise.

    B&M wing coasters are relatively forceless and very smooth - and this is no exception. Loved the near-miss effects.
