GateKeeper Hits 1,000,000 Riders

That was pretty fast!  Just midway through July, Cedar Point's brand new Wing Coaster, GateKeeper, has welcomed its one millionth rider. 

The lucky thrill seeker to mark the milestone was Maria Saenz of Milford, Michigan.  It was really her lucky day, and as the lucky rider she received a $500 Cedar Point shopping spree, a VIP tour of the park, and Fast Lane access to GateKeeper for the rest of this season.  Pretty cool prize pack just for riding a roller coaster!

GateKeeper opened at Cedar Point in May, and has developed a massive following since.  With much of the season left for the park, could the new coaster reach two million riders?  Quite possibly!
