The last stop of the day was the year-round Ghostly Manor haunt on Rt. 250... Its only $11 which is cheap for a haunt but it did have a few neat tricks (I won't spoill it) but only worth a visit just to do it... Thats all thanks for checking it out!

The park looks creepy without anyone in it :p. Gatekeeper looks better than I thought it would against they skyline. Love the pictures!

They removed the old ticket booths (As seen in my photos) which were in a straight line so they can build new ones which will be extend out in a V formation. Bryan also mentioned a giant awning and several giant video screens.

Nothing looked to be done on the turnstile building yet.

Thanks for the Pics!, Cedar Point looks creepy in a good way because it's surrounded by water in the fog with no people- just construction, and empty queue's :P. The skyline did definitely change. I'm guessing their done with lift. I can't wait to ride.
Life is the most thrilling roller coaster in the world. Everyone rides life.
Like a Vekoma, life isn't always great. Life is the longest, slowest, and fastest coaster in the world.
Like any coaster, life has it's up's and downs. Ride life to the fullest every day, because you don't know when it'll be taken.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Looks Great! As I have said before Gatekeepers colors are a win for me. Great to see the skyline with Gatekeeper's lift.
