Final concrete was poured on 2/12. SFFT took ten weeks to complete. If build time is similar at SFGAdv, they have about 6 weeks to build the station, theme, landscape, make it operationable and test to open by Memorial Day weekend.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge! Original enough to not steal someone else's quote as a signature
I might actually be more stoked that we're finally getting a Jersey Devil themed coaster - in the woods no less - than I am about the fact that we're getting a RMC raptor. This sh*t is gonna be so rad.
I really feel like on a national scale, this coaster is being overlooked, as they talk about their most anticipated 2020 coasters. I rarely see it cracking people's Top 3, and for me, it's solidly #2 behind Iron Gwazi (and barely ahead of Pantheon!) I am super excited to get on my first Raptor, and one of this size, and at this great park to boot! Obviously, the only question is when, but with family in the area, I am flexible, and can wait out its eventual opening.
How about others here? Is anybody else really excited about JD still? Or is this just not as high on people's list for various reasons?

^I agree that Jersey Devil may become a sleeper hit. So far, most of the 2020 attention is on Orion, Pantheon, and Iron Gwazi.
However, those other coasters are probably grabbing the most attention because they are complete or nearly-complete. I think people will gain more excitement for Jersey Devil when the coaster actually begins to take shape.
Those cars look awesome. I hope this model keeps the intensity as it grows in size. Can't wait to ride this one. Probably my most anticipated for 2020, with Iron Gwazi right behind it. *Please note, I haven't ridden WW or RB but I'm dying to.
