I have heard that the paint job is not done and that it looks fairly bad at the moment with several areas showing a mix old pain, primor, and new pain visible and that it will be in that state at least through Spring Break.

Alpengeist has made it to the top of the list now and no longer listed as coming later in March. I assume that means it'll be open this weekend.
There was a comment on one of the insta posts where someone asked. The park said this, tempesto, and Finnegan’s are to be up and running this weekend.

The reports of Alpengeist's painting being stopped appear to be at least slightly extracted. Also it's closed today.

Perhaps, but I think Alpie is more likely to go the rebuild route. How cool would it be if they Manta'd it!

This is what I want. This one. The footprint is perfect. Alpengiest was such a big deal when it opened, and for many years after it that I would hope they would do anything to try to save the legacy. I can't do it anymore. I like it rough, but I know my limit and I can do it once a year maybe.

Hypothetically speaking, IF this is true, this means we have about 5 years max life left out of Alpie?

Firebird at SFA will turn 32 a month from today when you include its original inception as Iron Wolf.

Patriot at CGA just turned 31 a couple weeks ago on March 9.

Vortex at Carowinds just turned 30 on the 14th of this month.

Batman: The Ride will turn 30 in a couple months on May 9.

All are B&Ms older than Kumba and all are 5-7 years older than Alpengeist showing no signs of closing in the near future.
