What positive effect is there to waiting until next year? If people are waiting for it to open before going, they're losing out on business this year.
Exactly this. If it opens this year, I'm going. If it doesn't, I won't bother. From a business perspective, the sooner they get it open, the sooner they'll get lots of goon money flowing through the tills.
Bit of a no-brainer I reckon.
