It's just that opening day is less than a month away. Pete Owens in that video (from 2/15) said train "should be over the hill by the end of next week" implying this coming Friday (2/26), so as long as we see this track all finished up before then, we should be in fine shape!
This coaster looks amazing, especially with the forest in the pictures dirtying the frame, making it look like the coaster is a part of the forest. i most likely won't get to ride this coaster this year, but I am so excited that it is close to being finished.
Is what I love about LR is it literally takes on every curve that the hill does after the drop, making it very bumpy and twisty. That 90+ degree outward banked turn though. You just know that element is going to be intense.
I don't know about anyone else, but ever since the announcement I've thought the giant wave turn was one of the scariest looking elements on a coaster that I've seen. And now seeing it constructed only confirms it for me even more so. It just looks like the whole thing is on the verge of falling over RMC is bringing back a sense of fear into coasters with their designs, which seems to have been lacking over the past number of years. I like it

I agree! Also I love how crazy their elements look, but they never feel forced. I've never really liked S&S's El Loco coasters (for example...) because they always seem a bit unnatural and artificial somehow, but with RMC their twists and turns always have such a natural flow to them despite looking like something has gone horribly wrong.
