First Impressions

« Go Back

First impressions are, as they say, your last. So when we designed GateKeeper's entrance plaza, we wanted to not only show off the beautiful beach, but also make a huge impact.

Today, you're getting a first-hand look at artist renderings of what the entry plaza will look like.

Let's start up close:

GateKeeper Entrance

The oval in the center will contain the GateKeeper sign as well as plants and seating around it. Sun shades will also allow you to relax and enjoy the view of the beach, Wicked Twister and of course, that big, new coaster to the right. ;)

But let's fly above...

GateKeeper Entrance

This view shows you the general entrance area. You'll enter the ride on the right, and follow the queue along the beach. You'll see more sun shades over that queue line as well.

And as we fly a little higher...

GateKeeper Entrance

Now you see the overall plaza. More sun shades near the food stands (we're finalizing what will be there) and the ride's exit/gift shop are now visible.

While renderings always show us a preview of what it will look like conceptually, the real thing is ALWAYS more breathtaking.

And not pesky. Not pesky at all!


That looks very nice.

Beautiful! I love the concept of looking at the beach and Lake Erie. In touch with the origins of Cedar Point. I cannot wait till May 11! Have my season pass and plans for the summer.

I love the concept of opening the views to the lake. It harkens back to the Cedar Point photos from the 1800s and early 1900s. I will be at Cedar Point on May 11!
