Looks like a typical winter Ohio day for Gatekeeper. That lake looks nasty.

I'm so excited to ride this this summer. It really does look beautiful.

It's crazy how open that area now feels compared to before. It's going to be so different. Excuse me if I'm incorrect, but there have not been any images or plans, etc. yet of what the entryway to this ride will look like right? I'll be interested to see what that area is going to look like now that Space Spiral and DT are gone. There appears to be a pretty good spot right next to Gatekeeper for some sort of flat right along the beach. That would be quite interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing the finishing touches come in the next few months.

2 + 2 = donkey!

No, there hasn't been any decent renderings of what the Gatekeeper entrance and the surrounding area is going to look like. There hasn't even been a closer look at what the station is going to look like. What I've been hearing is that the whole concessions there will be receiving a face lift. If the front entrance is an indication, I think we may see something similar done over by Gatekeeper.
The man may keep me down but opinions are my own.

Well Levithan's area was uplifted with Leviathan. Maybe Cedar Fair will carry that down south to CP. plus a BA sign could be in order if they are going to redo the whole area.

I love donkeys more than me.

Troika is still there and based on the beach cam I have a feeling that part of Gatekeeper's queue will go in that empty spot between the two rides.

I'm sure the CP fanboys are crying over the fact that Space Spiral would be smack dab in the middle of that photo. :p

Surprisingly, I don't think very many weren't too upset. From seeing some comments in the past, I'm pretty sure they were more upset over CP losing the crown of most coasters when Wildcat was removed. I didn't care about any of these three removals. However, some older locals were probably upset.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

I haven't seen one person complain over the fact that space spiral was removed.
