All I can say is WOW! Who knew that the removal of two rides and addition of one would drastically change the look of CP. I cant wait to see it in person:)
Thank goodness CP doesn't simply add one trick ponies to keep a coaster record.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

Its kind of hard to keep a record you DON'T have.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

That entrance pic looks great, stayed at Breakers last summer so I really never got closer to the front entrance than Raptor. Next time I'll definitely take a walk up there even staying at Breakers.

Guys remember - if you want to attend the Gatekeeper Media Day at a member of Club TPR, you MUST have joined or renewed your Club TPR membership by April 15th (tomorrow!), otherwise I cannot guarantee you'll have your membership card by the media day!

Join Club TPR - www.clubtpr.com

Gatekeeper Media Day info: http://www.cedarpoint.com/media-center/first-to-fly

(Note - if you have registered for Club TPR within the past few weeks, don't worry, we are getting caught up on welcome packets this week. We are waiting for tomorrow's deadline so we can get them all processed at the same time!)

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.

I would love to be able to attend the media session, but the timing just isn't right for me that week. :(

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