With regard to this project timeline, the timeline for Delirium is probably a good reference. Granted, this coaster is probably a slightly bigger undertaking than Delirium, but Shockwave was still standing by the time the park closed for the season in October 2015. That means they completely demolished the coaster and built Delirium between November 2015 and its opening the following March. Especially with the free spin site reportedly already being totally cleared, the park probably has oodles of time before they have to go vertical with the new coaster.

In general this would be akin to a lower capacity flat ride, so I'd think that they could open in 2021 without much hype unless COVID-19 restrictions are gone and they're free to pack the park again (doubtful), then go on all all-out marketing whammy for 2022 with whatever new big ride they'd put in assuming there's one coming at all.

I've heard they have it planned to open next year, but I assume next year's new pandemic will actually push it.
I thought assholes and being a selfish shitbag were already known pandemics. Learn something new daily!! 🤣🤣🤣

It will, but these things go up shockingly quickly—especially when the site is already cleared.

I honestly don't think we need to start asking any hard questions about this project till after Christmas. If we get into January 2021 and work hasn't really begun, then I'd start to get worried about a more substantial delay.

What's the average time from build through testing before opening? I'd think it's about 3 months give or take?

Based on how fast Dragon Slayer is going up, I'm guessing KD could probably have the structure completed by January or February because there is a rumor on another forum that this Free Spin will be the same model as Dragon Slayer.

I'd figure construction is quick assuming all of the pieces and contractors are in place - even more so that the park isn't open so there's no time/day restrictions if there's any inconvenience to guests (assuming Avalanche stays open).

I wonder if anyone has flown a drone over the construction site recently, I'd be interested to see how it looks now compared to early may.
