To meet that opening date won't they have to start testing pretty soon? How long does it usually take to test/what are the requirements?
Testing time varies greatly. The manufacturer (In this case Intamin) will have their programmer/mechanical engineers do a series of tests and they will do a certain amount of cycles before "handing" the ride over to the park so they can do their own testing. During the parks testing is usually when state inspectors will come out and do their inspections and have the park make any necessary changes so that it can be approved for riders. Each state has different requirements for amusement rides.
I believe that our group was told back in February (has it really been that long? I'm old!) that they wanted one hundred hours of testing for each train. They could probably do that over the course of three weeks.
