Firehawk, although smaller, did not go vertical until late March, and was open by the end of May. B&Ms tend to go up quite quickly. Look at Behemoth. They have an even harder time putting up track and supports because it is over water more often than other coasters. If the first support and track pieces start to go up in early-mid January, the whole structure could be up by the end of February.
Just my 2 cents.
That's true,they need to get the electronics for the control system & the power systems wired on site & wired up but usually that's among the last things done during construction.
The park can at least begin site work to pour footers while waiting for the electrical/mechanical components to be delivered,remember unlike Firehawk Dominator is a pretty large ride so it'll take more time than your average B&M multi-element coaster to put up.
