The confirmation came from this morning’s Q2 Earnings Conference Call, and revealed that the following roller coasters would have their grand openings moved to sometime next year:

This news comes as quite a disappointment for theme park fans looking forward to these new attractions. For now, it appears that we’ll have to wait just a little longer.

If Iron Gwazi is delayed till next year, then why are they doing test runs. I can understand Icebreaker at SWO, but Iron Gwazi is for the most part finished. It makes no sense.

Probably because it’s pointless to spend all that money on marketing a grand opening if so few guests are willing to come right now. It makes more sense to promote an opening when it will actually pay off in attendance.
