Considering the extended manufacturer testing period SEAS just endured with DarKoaster, I'm sure they're feeling a bit skittish about announcing a date until Intamin at least has a few cycles under their belt with this one.
Yeah, I think it's supposed to be where the second launch is. It's not impossible the ride could pause there, but from the picture it doesn't look like there will be much to see.Also I would like to point out that the hut shown in the picture looks to be mid-ride. The one at SWSA is the beginning of the ride. I would assume it will be more of a scenery item than anything.
Testing just started and they're still advertising it as opening "this spring." Must be going with the astronomical start date for the seasons, eh? Even that feels like a stretch.
