No, you aren't. Intamin and the parks made the press announcement at the IAAPA Expo late in the week as opposed to on Tuesday with all the others. On top of that, neither Intamin nor the parks have released any official video to the public, and the stats were only given out at the show, on printed pieces of paper. The coasters don't have names yet either.
For everyone else (lurkers included), please don't hate on Intamin or the parks for doing it in this way. Those coasters aren't coming for several years and it's very likely that the public won't get any official information until closer to when they start construction - and the designs may change! I'd be willing to believe that the announcement was less for the press and more for the potential client base to know, "hey, we can do crazy unusual coaster designs like those other companies too". It seemed very low-profile to me and the parks wouldn't even let Intamin loop the video on their screen after the announcement was over.
