That is definitely a way to say "welcome to heaven for enthusiasts." Great job, Cedar Point!

I'd hope so! Love the Rockit lighting. First I've heard of this, though.

How far into the ground are the supports for the keyhole towers? Amazing looking structure by the way. Hopefully my family and I get back up there since our first visit when Maverick opened in '07.

Here is that video mentioning the train lights. No details unfortunately. Still informative about queue location and other things.

I don't think they will. It was mentioned in a blog post that the gaps between the towers will stay in order to make it easier to check the bolts on the supports, if that's what you were referring to by slits.

Yolocoaster better step up his game.


We aren't really comparing Yolocoaster to Gatekeeper are we? Completely different leagues.
