Why does it take 3 and half years to build a rollercoaster?

Hah. Yeah. Six Flags builds them over a single winter. Even with a building and Florida’s all year building season, 18 months should be plenty.

Agree with Matt here… no way it should take that long for a single roller coaster to be built. Disney bureaucracy at it’s finest here folks.

It will be fun driving by and seeing the land being cleared.. too bad it’ll take so long.

It’s on the other side of the WDW Railroad tracks, correct? Is a walkway going over or under the tracks (like Space Mountain)?

Oh, so we have forgotten how long it took them to build mine train?? That took a very long time & no one should be surprised by the timeline. Maybe they could get it done faster but they aren’t going to lol.

We built Transformers in 9 months and demolished an old attraction in the middle of our park while building Harry Potter Diagon Alley but we have higher standards

Its called spreading money out people: with, a bunch of stuff (including Star Wars) opening next year, there is no need for Tron to open in the next two years to draw people to WDW.

Its called 4 or 5 hour lines, no fastpass, dailly breakdowns and people swearing to never come back. It would had been nice to have something new to draw some crowds away. Putting in a high capacity ride like Transformers before Harry Potters Diagon Alley opened was needed and it was a much better park experience at Universal

That´s what i had in mind… They already have Toy Sotry Land this year, Star Wars the next one… they need toi leave something new to get more people after that
