rhino18 wrote:^Not really, it's just because of the weather and perhaps the length of the track, although they had originally started when they were supposed to. Remember Thirteen's construction was delayed, because of the council getting all iffy with the iron age burial mound there. Oblivion's construction was primarily the MASSIVE tunnel they had to dig, which also had problems such as rainwater in the tunnel. Nemesis' construction was fairly simple as the pit was already dug, before construction started, due to the fact Nemesis was originally supposed to be an Arrow pipeline prototype. Air was easy in construction because only a little landscaping was neede (to make the paths and shop). Air's problems came about during its first couple of seasons, due to the amount of new technology.
I don't really see how having constuction in plain sight would make it harder. Wouldn't it be easier with no trees and stuff to work around?
rhino18 wrote:^You didn't say anything about the weather. That's why I stated it in my original post. And I know that there was a problem with limestone and hitting a footer, but I was just explaining about how the other rides had their own problems during construction. For example, Thirteen was built cutting through relatively dense woodland. And only 1 of the main attractions is in the Smiler's area, really. One more thing, how the hell would enthusiasts, not even in the construction site, make construction harder?

I doubt it's been busy enough for them to justify it yet but one can hope.

They were phasing the old ones out throughout last season, so yes.
