That's good news. Shame we'll have to wait till 9th May though. Suppose it does stop it from spoiling the ride before the first people get on it anyway.

Wow those look allot more nicer in the flesh, that I first thought, but that queue area will be very small for GateKeeper.

Interesting quote from Cedar Point, looks like we will be getting the POV of GateKeeper before the media day
Cedar Point's FaceBook wrote:The full POV drops on May 6. For a reason.

Also a nice picture was uploaded too.

That is a lovely picture.

By looking at the queueline picture. I have a sneaking suspicion this is either going to be cattlepenning from side to side or will go right to the end and come back alongside. The path just seems to wide for just a straight line queue.

I see where your coming from there, King. Especcially compared to the queuelines at Thorpe, That does look really wide.

This ride does look amazing though.

the queuelines for gatekeeper will thread along the beach then past the main sector of the lift before diving under and raising up to the section before entering after spliting for the side choice

That sounds like a very small queue line area, but then because GateKeeper has three trains, and it always runs the three trains, then it shouldn't really need a massive long queue line.
