Cedar Point's GateKeeper Topped Off

© Cedar Point
Reaching the highest point of any new ride is always a well documented milestone, and that is no different for Cedar Point's GateKeeper, which reached its apex this evening.

With the top of the lift hill in place GateKeeper now stands a full 170 feet tall.  The ride will quickly invert riders at the top of the lift, and then they will dive downward in a large half-loop.  At the pace that GateKeeper is going up (which is actually quite typical for B&M rides) I think we will see that first inversion and 164 foot drop in place sooner than later.

In addition to a couple shots from the park's official Facebook page, the Great Ohio Coaster Club has a set of photos sent in by the park.
