Is that a really short support piece, or something else? Whatever it is, looks like it's attached to a footer...

 

That's been there since the very beginning, I thought it was a porta-potty for the construction workers or something. It was there before any other supports were placed.

 

Then again, I could be wrong. It could be the base of a support.

Yeah I went back to the time lapse, you're right

I just did the same thing. Yep, it's a porta-potty.

You can even see what looks like an open door.

^Winds on Lake Erie are really bad, especially this time of year. And Cedar Point is on a peninsula on Lake Erie. Let's not forget that when you're working high in the air (like Valravn will be), the winds are extremely dangerous. I grew up in the midwest but I've never been in a place as windy as northern Ohio.

 

Once it starts snowing, there are definitely days where they won't work. The wind creating drifting snow across the causeway is damn near deadly. You can't see anything at all.

The winter Gatekeeper was constructed was an extremely cold and snowy winter, but construction continued to move right along.

 

Notice how I never said anything about them stopping construction just because of snow, but because of the wind when there's snow:

It's pretty apparent that no one here is familiar with lake erie weather in the winter. It's damn near miserable sometimes. I'm also not quite getting the criticism because you know that it's going to open on time... It's a B&M and it's at Cedar Point. They've planned for this.
