I'd have to say that SFoG has a very nice entrance as well. Drive in under Goliath, walk in under Goliath, or sit down and enjoy watching Goliath. Goliath was just plopped right on top whereas CP redesigned to fully include GateKeeper and all its beauty. I look forward to the day I drive down the causeway for the new skyline.

Ride On Friends! See you May 9th!

Well, it's certainly better than it was. Calling it best is a bit of a stretch, but it'll actually look nice.

It definitely looks great, and probably raises the bar for standard local amusement parks...but competing with something like Tokyo Disney, Disneyland Paris, IoA etc...there's PLENTY of better entrance areas.

^Yeah, it's a little tough for a Cedar Fair park to top those examples--but CP's new entrance looks nice enough.

In terms of Gatekeeper being the focal point of the entrance I would definitely say it's more memorable than the entrance areas of many of those parks. They may have more theming and detail, but CP has a monstrous roller coaster navigating a zero G roll through two stark white towers.

I don't even think they have the best Cedar Fair entrance... Carowinds, Valleyfair, and maybe even Knotts' entrances are all more interesting looking.

I think I'll skip the POV and wait to experience this in person. Some of the leg-choppers really got me on Wild Eagle, so I'm sure the key hole element will be really frightening on the ride haha. Hopefully I'll get to Cedar Point this year!
