After de-announcing it, the suspense may have been spoiled some, but it would still be better than waiting another year for it. Then again, they've made counter plans, and I'm sure it would be difficult to spin around again. It would be good to see them continue to grow though.
I don't beleive it is even an option to pick the project back up in a month or so because in that time you loose some of your greatest time for construction. Right now the weather is still cooperative for any construction and if you pick back up in one month that pushes the opening back by one month which would really be pointless because new attractions (at least at Dollywood) try to draw people all year long (unless they include water or whatever) and you loose one month of a possible increase of attendance because of that project. Just a thought.
In general I think the decision made by Dollywood/Herschend Family Entertainment Corporation was a very fiscally responsible one and I applaud them for making the tough decision in the interest of the park!
