SANDUSKY, Ohio (www.incnow.tv) -- Cedar Point opens this weekend and the season a new roller coaster, GateKeeper, is making it's debut.

GateKeeper is the world's tallest and fastest wing-coaster. Fort Wayne's Tom Egolf arrived at 4 a.m. and rode on the GateKeeper 14 times before we caught up with him.

"I love rollercoasters! I think this one, GateKeeper is awesome," Egolf remarked.

The coaster stands 170 feet tall and is Cedar Point's 16th. With six inversions, it is breaking records for this type of ride.
