One in a million. Literally. That’s the luck of Marie Saenz from Milford, Mich., who was the one millionth rider to take flight on GateKeeper - the tallest, fastest and longest wing coaster in the world. Saenz was awarded a $500 Cedar Point shopping spree, a VIP tour of the park and exclusive access to GateKeeper for the rest of the season. GateKeeper now joins the ranks of legendary high-capacity rides at the park, such as Millennium Force, Raptor and Magnum XL-200.

Just to be contrarian, you do know if the count for the hour dropped well below the actual capacity of the ride. Then you know it was a walk-on.

Correct. The only time I can think of that ride count tells us how long the line is is when they're sending out empty seats all day. Then they would be running below calculated daily capacity, and a queue, no matter how long, wouldn't be necessary anyway. Capacity is capacity is capacity, no matter long or short the line is.
