Remember... There's another inversion over the entrance that has yet to be built ;) It's going to be even more awesome than it looks now!

I see cedar Point is really proud of GateKeeprer and they rightfully should be. This looks great all the way around. Now that they have gotten the the rigorous work done. I can see the circuit being complete within 2 weeks.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

New front entrance looks great, it will really change the park. It seems more "welcoming" as well. With the coaster flying over head, guess guests know what their in for right away. :airtime:

I like how they said "H. Giant United States flag". Not just any flag, a giant flag!

On a side note, i'm going to be running Gatekeeper this year! Looking forward to seeing some TPR members this summer and the whole crew during the Texas and Midwest trip. =)
