SANDUSKY, Ohio — When you’re going 70 mph, you probably want to keep a good distance away from other objects.

Cedar Point’s GateKeeper banks on that notion in hopes of giving riders a thrill when the coaster zips through its keyhole towers!

Pictures released by the amusement park show how narrow those openings are.

The shots were taken from a man lift on Friday and give a close perspective of what riders will experience if they dare to board the GateKeeper.

It will have the longest track, longest drop and most inversions of any wing coaster in the world, Cedar Point says.

GateKeeper should be finished by the time the park opens for the 2013 season on May 11.
