As the ones who follow this web site already know this project has been years in the making and it should come as no surprise that now in the last stages of the development, we should hit a few more delays. However, this also gives the doubting Thomas types ammunition to proclaim it will never happen! -NEWS FLASH- it's being built even bigger than first envisioned. So, what's up, why the delay to Spring 2022 you may ask. The answers may come as a surprise to a few of you and not so much to others.
The first delay is due to the amount of time required from ordering equipment to having it up and operational, in some cases that's over two years or more. It's not like you can go down to the Roller Coaster store pick it out and have it ready to run tomorrow.
The next delay is the fact that we are building a much larger Levee system than first envisioned. After reviewing historic weather patterns and taking into account past flooding events that have very rarely ever effected the project site like Hurricane Katrina it became very clear that the strongest flood defense would be only prudent, considering the fate of the old Jazzland / Six Flags park in New Orleans just 22 short miles away.
Other delays such as providing more time for some utilities to bring stronger infrastructure into place, building or improving roadways. More design and build time for even better indoor adventure ride attractions just to name a few of the advantages of taking a little more time.
While this may be a disappointment to a few of you we feel that at the end of the day, this all will prove to be worth the wait.
I would also like to extend my hope that all of you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Thanks for stopping by and Have a Blessed Day
