I actually think that the slots in the top of the key hole looks nice but the one at the base, with the support-like connectors in between looks a little rushed. That said I have a feeling that the gaps may end up being filled in before the start of the season.

Its a bit of a shame that nobody builds observation towers like the ones at the King's parks, they're a much better experience than the "ride" type ones. An observation deck high above the middle of cedar point would really be a memorable part of anyone's day there.

^I agree totally! Those are much better opportunities for photos and actually enjoying the views of the park, while enjoying a nice breeze, rather than trying to take photos through dirty windows while up there for about 4 seconds before coming back down. Space Spiral wasn't very good as an observation tower anyway...

It's been confirmed and mentioned several times that the gaps will not be filled in.

I have missed any official explanation of the gaps? I've heard they are permanent - for now but won't be permanent all the time. Guess it doesn't matter too much. Either way, this was funny:

^Hilarious!!!! :lol:
I think the gaps actually look kinda cool. I like it better than the concept art.

I think the gap looks cool too, makes the design a little more unique. Not like it matters one way or the other.

I would imagine since it's a new structure type for B&M, that they want time to check everything (stresses, etc.) and go from there. I wouldn't be surprised to see other parks get B&M "gate" coasters (unless CP has some sort of contract on it). It's too good an idea to not duplicate!

This does not say anything about "further down the road" but is the official confirmation on the gaps. It also says the color is not final, so I guess they will be painted an even prettier color :)
