Gatekeeper POV is up

No. Right.

I think the left gets higher on the inversions.

No. Right.

No. Middle.

It's an added personal challenge; can you hold onto the Gatekeeper's face for the whole ride?

^I just spit on the keyboard. Thanks for that :)

Holding the Gatekeeper's face would have to be a distant cousin of riding Corkscrew (or any Arrow) with your feet up on the hood of the front seat. People were still doing that in the early 90s. It was a funny and odd sight to see occasionally: a Corkscrew train corking over the midway with some schmoe's feet up on the dash. And then the very rare 4 feet up on the dash.

I'm pretty sure I'm Right.

I like the right side front seat giving you that slow dip as you come off the lift. The left side rises up which pushes you into the seat, while the right side drops out from under you. At least that what I think it will feel like.

They are vastly different. The left side flows caramel onto the cookie, while the right side cascades the caramel onto the cookie. Wait, no, that's Twix. Sorry.

All I know is that if I line up for the right side and the crew asks me if I could please take the left, I'll volley back and forth with them ("queue line tennis," if you will) until they give up and let me have the right side.

Or you might just be lucky enough to get to sit where you want from the start. Who knows?

True, but I'm not taking any chances. I'm arguing with a mirror right now for practice, just in case.

I represent a CoasterBuzz meme? Really? I'm honored.

I'd like to thank all the little people..Tom Thumb, Billy Barty, Herve Villechaize...

And the DWILF-iest of all, Peter Dinklage!

Forgot about him. At least he's alive. None of the ones I named are...

I was not fully prepared for the action in the back left. It's pretty aggressive the way it flips you over and pulls you down that first drop.

Is SFMM's Superman really a roller coaster? Does Racer at Kings Island count as two credits? Which side of Gatekeeper is the best side?


Wednesday, May 8, 2013 11:45 AM

Two of those questions are valid.

I think the rear right is the seat, for the same reasons, Jeff. I think having my seat pulled out from under me then yanked down the hill will be the scariest.

I can't wait.

Shout out!

Wow... Those are a couple of poor quality videos. I cannot tell if it's a bad camera, or there's some major seat bounce going on. I thought Wild Eagle was pretty rough in the back row, and we rode it the 2nd day it was open.

But I gotta say, Right side does look cooler.

I drove up to Sandusky today without a plan. I decided to check Castaway Bay on a whim and the rate for media day attendees is 79 bucks for any room. I'm in a Tarpon Suite, big king bed, walk in closet, huge bathroom, balcony overlooking the water, and a separate room with 4 bunk beds for the kids! WooHoo!

I need to be sleeping now, but I can't. 3A is gonna come mighty early...
