    Incase nobody's noticed, the job estimate is $200,000. So this is far from confirmed, more likely just structure upkeep to keep it up to code (as of the moment)

    And the fact that BGT literally said they’re turning it into a hybrid doesn’t mean anything?

    That does mean it's eventually getting RMCd, but the idea that it'll be opening in 2019 (like many people claim) because of this when they've only bid for $200,000 amount of work is totally out of the realm of possibility. I'd expect that money to cover basic inspections, light demolition of track that won't be used, etc.

    So the permit essentially confirms what was already heavily rumoured, then. It is certainly an exciting step, if you ask me, and the only thing I want to do now is; get the hype for this thing rolling! It's an RMC, and who doesn't seemingly love an RMC based on current reviews? Not only that, but it's also the first RMC that there's a possibility of me getting on in the near future, so I'm pumped for this thing to open!

    It also says opening 2020 on the park maps now. Couldn't be clearer when it will open :)

    'Cos this project is still so far off that no one cares enough yet.

    Happy now?
