GateKeeper is Breaking More Records« Go Back Tuesday, August 21st, 2012
You've heard how GateKeeper will be the tallest and longest wing roller coaster in the world, but it will also break even bigger records. The wing over drop on GateKeeper will be the TALLEST inversion on any roller coaster in the world!
The record is currently held by Volcano: The Blast coaster, located at our sister park in Virginia, Kings Dominion. GateKeeper will "blast" past the record with an inversion that is 170 ft above the ground.
As soon as the train crests the top of the hill, it will begin to rotate riders upside down, then dive towards the ground with the train traveling back in the direction of the station.
One of the best seats on the ride will be in the very back row, on the left side. The left side of the train is the high side on the wing over drop, and in the back row, you'll get "pulled" through the inversion.
