Best time to go on GateKeeper? Average wait time?

We're going tomorrow and wondering how the lines were in the beginning of the season in the middle of the week.

Since the new coaster is right at the front gate, would it be wise for us to get to the back of the park when it opens? We're guessing everyone will be going in line for the GateKeeper.

Or, is the line so insane by afternoon we should get in line as early as possible?

Thanks in advance.

Consider reading through some recent reviews. The June 2 review, "“Been coming here for over 30 years and still the best!," by ohcoasterfreak. It's excellent.

My cousin went yesterday and lines were pretty long. (45 minutes) They opted for the fast pass and had no problems. The drawback is the fast pass is $70.00 dollars if you want the Gatekeeper included. If you have a season pass or are staying at one of the hotels you get early access and with a season pass the parking is included.

We stopped by the park last evening to pick up our passes and went in for a bit and the wait was only 30 minutes - that's not bad for a new coaster. The sign said it was 15 min for the fast pass.

30-45 minutes is short, IMO.

Thanks, everyone! I just got back from a FANTASTIC day at Cedar Point! We arrived at 10:30 am and got straight in line for the the GateKeeper. It was a 45 minute wait. We went back at 4 and 8 and both were just 30. Not bad!
