According to Park President Jeff S, they plan to have WW-GLC open by around Spring Break 2018.
Three train operation continuous moving trains through the station should help a little with capacity.

He also said it should be a better capacity than Batman.

Being able to (presumably) unload and load on opposite sides of the station should help there compared to the free spins.

You do realize the load/unload is not going to be the limiting factor, it's the 8 passengers and blocking of the coaster. The dispatch times are going to be limited by blocking regardless of how fast they load 8 people. If the blocking allows 1 min per dispatch you only get to 480pph, if it allows 45 seconds you're still only at 720pph.

^ True but loading and unloading on opposite sides will help them achieve whatever dispatch interval they are going for.

The load/unload area on the free spins or any ride that loads/unloads on the same time can turn into a cluster really quick.

It's actually limited by the blocking, they could have a train loaded and ready and it still has to wait. That's all the moving floor will do is maybe allow minimum dispatch time. RMC set spec capacity at 600pph for 3 trains. Spec capacity is based on minimum dispatch time with the blocking as the limitation. RMC by setting 600pph is telling us 48 seconds is the minimum dispatch time.

This number is from marketing material 2 years ago, it may even be higher now.

They could add a splash down at the end and rename The Golden Shower Coaster. :lmao: Yah I went there.
