Usually the project manager takes these risks into account and will schedule the project accordingly. Either he didn't do his job right or there's a bigger problem than you think.
Just as you say they have for sure been counting with some troubles during testing of this ride, as it is a prototype.
But remember that the whole Project have been behind Schedule since very early in the process, and that may also have something to do with the delay.
We won't know for sure until the park relases anything about it though.

This is correct, such a designed as used on the Tower would never be built without an emergency release.
