    So 2020 is looking like itll be Bourne. Honestly if waiting till 2021 for the coaster means the land will get much needed love, im down for that

    I understand, just was saying if they're spending a larger budget on this for rockwork than Hagrid, there may be even more going into it than Alicia may have originally thought.

    If you don’t count things like the Gothic ruins or AAs, there not actually that much actual rockwork for Hagrid. (Especially after they cut the spike cave and flying car sections)

    So Alicia what’s your saying is that the Gothic ruins are not count as rockwork ?

    What I mean is that, I’ve always thought that rockwork was a general term for all brick/stones/rockwork etc
    Everything that used projected and sculpted concrete... :what:

    This may be a bit above her pay-grade, honestly.
    We have a couple people on here that know a bit more on the construction end, but even they likely won't know the specifics on this regarding the budgeting.

    Brickwork /= Rockwork

    But it probably depends on the project and what each company is contracted for. Building a structure is not the same as sculpting rock.

    But theme park "Brickwork" isn't Brickwork. Just as their "Rockwork" isn't rockwork. They're much closer to one another than the "brickwork" on Hagrids are to actual brickwork.

    True. But I bet Jurassic Coaster has a lot more rock that’s just rock, like Camp Jurassic, and less brick that’s also a structure like Hagrid. If that makes sense.

    But yea, I’m sure they’re clumped together on certain contracts. You’re probably right. I’m just guessing the abbey structure itself wasn’t counted in whatever totals we see for rockwork for Hagrid (even if the brickwork is).

    Yea, I’d be surprised if all the Abby stuff wasn’t considered “rock work”

    So, 2021? arg. I was potentially going to go in Feb 2021, thinking it would be up and ready. Are we talking very early 2021 or spring 2021?

    I’d say Spring. (Which, I believe was @Joe ’s guess. So he may win the pool!)

    Judging how quickly Hagrid's came together, I'd say Spring 2021 is an easy bet.

    Interesting to think they're giving this roughly the same construction timeline as Hagrid.... Actually probably even longer if you consider when they started on all of the land clearing and a Spring 2021 opening.. Makes me wonder about the true scope of work taking place.

    I don’t think the timeline can tell us a ton on the scope. I think it’s more that they’ll be building in the middle of the park, limiting what they can do during the day. Not to mention construction in the lagoon and right by Popeye
