Don't quote me on this one but from everything I'm hearing the park is looking at a mid to late July opening if everything goes smoothly......since almost nothing ever goes smoothly and this slide is being shipped from overseas....not to mention the adventure alley rides haven't even gone vertical yet....at this point I wouldn't be shocked if king cobra gets pushed to next year. Again don't quote me but IMO its not looking good for this year shooting for a mid-july opening AT THE EARLIEST for a water park is really pushing it.

Saw the pieces to King Cobra laying on the side of the fence next to the speed slide. Now construction needs to start.

It won't be open for opening day, that's for sure. But I could be wrong.

Yes they have said they are shooting for a mid to late july opening but have they even done land clearing yet? They plan on constructing this thing while the park is open! Good luck I still refer to my comment at tye top of this page

Yeah, I hope they get things done quickly. I would hate to have to wait for King Cobra next year. It will definitely hurt SF business wise, since most of the park's promotions are for HH opening KC this summer.

Maybe they are counting on that they don't go to daily operations until the end of June so they have the weekdays to work on it?

They dont go to daily operations until the end of june! WOW! They really did cut back hours didnt they! I didnt realize that I thought theyd be at daily operation by next week. In that case yea if the pieces are on site they should be able to do it fairly easy with 5 days a week to work with (weekends they wouldnt work anyway) and then testing in late june/early july....they should make it! My one concern is that all the pieces dont arrive on time because of the fact that they are coming from overseas but because pieces are onsite already id expect that they should have all of them within a month of the first shipment....it usually seems to take a month for coaster parts to all truck in I cant imagine a water ride taking longer

It makes a lot of sense that they wouldn't do daily until the end of June. Having worked there a lot last Summer, weekdays in June were always dead and it consisted of a lot of staff cutting and some early closings a few times.

Went to harbor today. Many pieces/supports grouped in the park and on the sides of the roadway driving in. Also the ride area has some work being done,you could tell all the dirt was plowed into a pile and framing(?) for the foundation(or something like that) has started.
