I enjoyed riding GateKeeper. Some coaster enthusiasts have complained that the ride is a little too tame and that it maneuvers slowly between elements, but I think that is the nature of Wing Coasters. I have personally been on half of the world's Wing Coasters, and none of them are very aggressive. I feel that the coasters roll slowly, but since riders sit so far away from the center-line of the track, a fast roll rate would be stressful to riders and to the train's structure that holds the seats away from the track. There may be more aggressive coasters out there, but I would rather ride a fun coaster like GateKeeper that gracefully and smoothly maneuvers rather than a coaster that is rough and violent.
