GateKeeper looks bueatiful, the third picture is absolutely brilliant!
Shame we haven't yet been given a test run video by Cedar Point.

They look absolutely amazing! I agree with Simba that the third picture is the best!

Awesome Magnum Chris, we look forward to seeing your pictures from the Media Day.
Also looks like a POV is coming really soon.

I am sure the on ride pov for GateKeeper will be as amazing, but you can never beat the thrill of actually riding one of these inverted drop wing coasters. I love The Swarm, and thought the pov was good, but I thought the ride was better actually riding it.

In all fairness it's the same for quite allot of coasters, well B&M ones especially. According to Tony Clark from his twitter account a new video should be online later today!
I reckon it will either be a video with testing footage or a onride POV, personally I don't mind either way, but I think I would prefer testing footage, as we will get lots of GateKeeper onride POVs when it's open.

We can see some good testing footage of GateKeeper in the latest Cedar Point Point Cast by Tony Clark.

It looks amazing, but interesting that they are running it in testing stages with two sets of wheels!
