Workers erect the steel backbone that will eventually become the 170-foot tall GateKeeper "winged" roller coaster, the new $26 million signature thrill ride that will debut this May at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky. When completed, the 4,164-long coaster will whisk 32 riders along at a top speed of 67 mph through a series of loops, twists, and the keyholes of two towers being constructed at a remodeled front entrance to the park.
