There could be structural issues -- I don't want to jump to conclusions -- its just that I haven't been informed or cast members haven't been told there are major delays (the ones I've talked to).

 

Minor delays yes, but nothing to push back the opening date.

 

Sorry -- he could be right, but not according to my sources, what I see there everyday.

I hope there will the "making of" movie of this coaster. This should be great .

 

Discovery Channel will be airing a couple shows based around the ride when it gets closer to opening.

I hope they show construction footage, the whole process of design etc., problems they had with the coaster or challenges etc.

No official opening date yet.

 

Some folks say earth day (america's that is).

 

Expect technical rehearsals for a bit in mid february.

 

Then it close down for a bit, then open back up a week or two before the grand opening -- I'm guessing.

So much design and testing goes into these rides before construction even starts that it's hard to believe there is much that hasn't been characterized. I'm sure all engineers involved are on top of it; it's not like Disney to just throw something up see what happens when you start it up.

That's what I'd read thru various 'zines and sites. Earth Day, April 22, is the anniversary of Animal Kingdom itself, so "the rumored plan" was for the Official Opening of EE to be around that date, which is a Saturday, next year.

 

Just what I heard, m'self.

Not much new -- the rocks are gone-- first batch of (non trainer position) of cast members are being trained.

 

Part of the backstory is that the train was originally used for a tea hence the smell of tea when you cross over the bridge.

 

Looks like they are running only 4 trains of the total 5.

 

Fun, fun fun!

Now if we heard this news from the Dippin Dots guy, I would believe it. They know EVERYTHING!

 

Except about what constitutes good ice cream. If this is the "ice cream of the future," I think I'll stick to Ben and Jerry's and Dairy Queen.
