SANDUSKY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

GateKeeper took its first flight just a couple months ago, but it is already celebrating a big milestone.

One million fans have stood in line and waited to board Cedar Point's newest rollercoaster, and one million have experienced GateKeeper. But the honor of being the one millionth rider belongs only to Marie Saenz from Milford, MI.

Saenz was also 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 is the tallest, fastest and longest wing coaster in the world, and it now joins the ranks with other high-capacity rides at the park, including the Magnum XL-200, Millennium Force and Raptor.
