People aren't posting because there isn't anything new to discuss. No one's throwing anything under the bus, and you really need to stop characterizing it that way when the premise has no basis in fact. The reasons for the delay are extremely obvious and have been explained to you ad nauseum.The forum appears to be inactive. So far Busch Gardens has not even marketed the ride in their TV or radio ads. Why is it hat they are throwing it under a bus? I can understand why it has been delayed for a year.
But so far, there are no reports of ride operations, hiring, employees riding it, etc. I just feel any chances the ride opening this year is fading away.
But all is not lost yet. It is just that I have no insight from anyone working at Busch knowing about the situation.
First, you need to hire a ride ops team. And you need to train them to operate the ride system. That would usually take 2-4 weeks.
All we need to wait for is Busch to hire new recruits. When Tigris was about to open in 2 weeks, they were testing employees before the public did.
Furthermore, and I am trying to say this as respectfully as I can, you seem a bit out of your depth in terms of how rides are tested, trained, and opened.
