  Original Published: 5/9/2013Cedar Point unveiled its new rollercoaster Thursday, to Ohio media and coaster clubs from across the country. And, the coaster is a record-breaker and a wild ride. WMFD's Greg Heindel takes you to the Gatekeeper. It's a unique coaster in that the seats are on each side of the track, with your legs hanging down, giving you the fleeing of flying. The Gatekeeper is the longest winged coaster in the world, and the fastest at 67 mph. It features a record-setting 170 foot inverted drop at the beginning, and features "keyholes" that make you worry about your legs.    The ride takes about three minutes. Opening day at Cedar Point is Saturday, from 10 am to 10 pm. Sunday's hours are ten to eight.
