    Nice surprise! Fun Duration

    This was our first coaster of the day and it was honestly a pleasant surprise. This wing coaster felt smooth, and the duration was longer than I expected it to be (in a good way!). There was also very little wait for the ride. Not sure if this was due to it being tucked away a bit on the side?

    Harness Intensity

    I’m not a fan of this ride. It has potential but it suffers from not being intense and I really don’t like the B&M vest restraints

    First Drop Comfort Layout Lap Bar

    I rode this when it first opened, and I found it pretty boring. The main problem was the harness/lap bar became increasingly tight as the ride progressed. I thought it was going to crush my thighs as we sat waiting at the end to enter the loading station. When I rode it again years later, the lap bar issue had been fixed, and I found the ride was no longer boring. In fact, I wound up riding it multiple times because it was so much fun. It has good pacing and a good layout.

    Not a fan of the restraints but I guess it makes the GP happy. The layout is beautiful and the setting makes this a fun ride. Outside seat had more roughness for me and inside was smooth. Good near misses. In many other parks this would be a top coaster probably

    Great inversions, hangtime on the wing over drop, and good headchoppers, but it has lots of dead spots (camelback, helix). Still a fun ride!

    First Drop Inversions Fun

    The winged seating added a weird feel to the inversions that made it stand out from the other B&M loopers I've ridden. This coaster isn't the most intense coaster out there, but it's just pure fun.

    Last time I rode Gatekeeper I was surprised by all the force. I don't remember that from my previous rides. The immelman has good Gs and the near misses were great. The dive loop had force as well. Much better then I remembered. Still prefer Wild Eagle and Thunderbird but solid coaster.

    I generally like wing coasters, and this is no exception, it pulls some serious forces and the hangtime and airtime is really good. Fun ride

    i just find wing coasters to have a really high fun factor, but other than lots of hangtime combined with a few decent moments of positives and airtime, this ride doesnt do that much

    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.

    First Drop Smoothness Hangtime Harness

    A pretty underrated coaster. It was a lot more intense than I was expecting. It's very smooth and has some awesome headchopper (or feetchopper, in this case) moments. The first drop is pretty disorienting as well. The only complaint I have is the bulky restraints, but it makes some sense due to the nature of the ride. Overall, I have got to tip my hat to B&M here.

    Location Layout Hangtime

    It's not the biggest and the restraints are a bit uncomfortable, but this roller coaster makes me happy. Gatekeeper is the first thing people see when they enter the best park in the world and it's absolutely beautiful. The flying sensation during the inversions is almost soothing, and the near miss through the keyholes is brilliant... it's a great way to start a trip to the Point.

    Inversions Smoothness Duration Pointless

    I really wanted to ride this ride when I saw the povs, but then I rode it. I rode 3rd to last row (covid 19 made no prefer seating) so that might be why I didn't like this ride. I experienced little to none g's at all and the inversions gave little hang time. The key holes and the lights on the train were cool but cant revive this ride for me. I might re-rank this ride but I still need the other credits at the park before they close for the year so I might not get a re-ride.

    First Drop Inversions Fun Harness

    This is a really fun coaster. The drop is really intense too. The keyholes make the entrance to the park look amazing, and they make the inversions more fun. It's a parking lot coaster, but it's also right next to the water. The vest restraints are tighter than Valravn's & Yukon Striker's vest restraints, but it's still a really fun wing coaster.

    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.

    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.

  • Evangelion Martini

    Location Comfort Smoothness Intensity

    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.

  • Dave Scott
    Dave Scott 2 years ago

    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.

    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.

    Inversions Hangtime Duration

    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.

    Capacity Inversions Fun Harness

    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.
