Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

So basically there were about as many rides open as there would be in peak season with 15 mph winds.

I'm conflicted about the new entrance. On one hand it looks a million times more modern and the keyhole is spectacular. But apart from that the whole thing is very bland. The ticket booths and the structure under the keyhole, while modern looking, are all very forgettable. Wish they would have built things up a little more below.

Now, Cedar Point probably has the best entrance to any theme park. Something like this would also be nice to see at other parks.

 

I'd have to say that SFoG has a very nice entrance as well. Drive in under Goliath, walk in under Goliath, or sit down and enjoy watching Goliath. Goliath was just plopped right on top whereas CP redesigned to fully include GateKeeper and all its beauty. I look forward to the day I drive down the causeway for the new skyline.

 

Ride On Friends! See you May 9th!

It definitely looks great, and probably raises the bar for standard local amusement parks...but competing with something like Tokyo Disney, Disneyland Paris, IoA etc...there's PLENTY of better entrance areas.

^Yeah, it's a little tough for a Cedar Fair park to top those examples--but CP's new entrance looks nice enough.

In terms of Gatekeeper being the focal point of the entrance I would definitely say it's more memorable than the entrance areas of many of those parks. They may have more theming and detail, but CP has a monstrous roller coaster navigating a zero G roll through two stark white towers.

I don't even think they have the best Cedar Fair entrance... Carowinds, Valleyfair, and maybe even Knotts' entrances are all more interesting looking.

I think I'll skip the POV and wait to experience this in person. Some of the leg-choppers really got me on Wild Eagle, so I'm sure the key hole element will be really frightening on the ride haha. Hopefully I'll get to Cedar Point this year!

Something tells me they might be able to have a dirty Carnival poop toilet as a ticket booth/entrance & it really wouldn't matter this year.

 

Do you really think that people aren't going to be constantly ignoring the entrance sign (& line progress) while looking up at the keyhole waiting for the next coaster to come flying through whilst tripping over one another whilst trying to update their Facebook status on their Smartphones?

 

I would say that's going to be the case for at least the next couple of years - before they remove the keyholes because they're crumbling, unpainted & unsafe because CP is sinking & they used cheap concrete & poor engineering to build them and the fact that they're not connected and the station is not themed enough and the front entrance looks too much like Leviathon because it's going to be a slow and meandering coaster without airtime like the one at Dollywood with sh&tty restraints which have too many trims and has a boring layout and wish that they would have kept family rides like Disaster Transport and Space Spiral which were never very good because they weren't Intamin and they wanted too much money for locker.

 

And damn it....

 

Windseeker is STILL down...is it safe?

 

CP has way too many trash cans, there are not enough trees, parking is too expensive, hotels suck, food sucks and is over-priced, Mean Streak needs an RMT, STR & Maverick have PMS, Magnum is bi-polar, TTD is a one-trick pony, Corkscrew & Iron Draggin are near death, there certainly aren't enough shows, there aren't enough dark rides, it just has to be in (guhhh) Ohio, and finally...are lines going to be long at 13:27:52 PM on June 3rd and will I need to buy one of those over-priced Fast Pass thingies?
