After watching the video a couple of times I get the impression that the train goes through the zero-g-roll a bit faster than most other wingriders. And, in theory, this isn't full speed. I hope that means ride will be great :Pr
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Come one. Come all. Ride the roller coaster in my pants.

At 1:12 in the video. You're planting TREES?? Say it ain't so, Cedar Point! You should have nothing but concrete! :p

But seriously, though. It's great news to hear that the park is doing some landscaping in the new area. Hopefully this means they may rip out some concrete elsewhere in the park to put in more trees. It would help Cedar Point be nicer and a little less hot in the summer.
It's so great to see GateKeeper run! It'll only get faster as testing progresses!

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Yup. I can't make media day, or opening day but I can at least make opening weekend!
Never done a wing rider, no idea if it has any real different feel to it but at least this the biggest and fastest one so far.

Nice video! Will nighttime testing with the light packages begin soon? I'd love to see what they do!

If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year

COMPLETELY different feeling than a regular B&M.

Looks great, really can't wait to ride now! And can't wait to see the soft wheels to go on just to see how much faster this coaster will go.

Hard wheels are the "faster" wheels.
I live just down the street from Cedar Point, and I guess you'd label me as a fanboy!
