Cedar Point Gatekeeper Before and After

Here you can see some of the differences from pre-removal of Demon Drop, Space Spiral and Disaster Transport.

Not a perfect match, but you get the idea. This one came out after and before, my mistake.
No, Space Spiral was not tipping over (poor shot on a beautiful day) as it did in the following video. Which would you take, better photo quality on a poor weather day for photo taking, or not so good leveling on a photo on a really great weather day?
Trade offs, trade offs. It would have been cool to see Gatekeeper circle around both Demon Drop and Space Spiral similar to Gold Striker at Great America with their observation tower or Tatsu at Magic Mountain with their tower. Always sad to see classics go, but that is progress. If you loved Demon Drop, or any of those wonderful first generation Intamin drop towers, get to Dorney Park. I feel this is the best feeling of true free fall, true zero gravity. 

If you are interested, as an appreciation for making our community what it is, we are running a deal until tomorrow (Wednesday) for the print version of our "Great Pennsylvania Amusement Parks." We will take it from $21.95 plus shipping to a flat $16.00, saving $5.95 off of the original price. Instead of ordering through the dropdown menu, Paypal a flat $16.00 to greatpaparks@gmail.com with your shipping address and your preference on if you would like a free Conneaut Blue Streak or Lakemont Leap the Dips ticket. A portion of the proceeds go to those parks.

Our E-Book version is also now available at Amazon and Lulu for only $9.99 using the following links:
