    ^Some testing has already begun. The lift hill chain has been rotating and block testing has already begun with both trains moving throughout the station & transfer track areas.

    Not quite. It's about 90% done. They've started a lot of testing already that would usually only occur after track completion. Presumably this will make the time between track completion and opening shorter than it would normally be.

    Does anyone have a rough idea of what throughput this beast will manage?
    And subsequently, how long the wait is likely to be this summer?

    Throughput on this is a concern of mine. It is going to be extremely popular and there are only 2 trains. We all know that whilst BGT has far from the worst operations out there, it also isn't one of the fastest parks. (Although having said that Tigris is operated fantastically.) Theoretical throughput will probably be around 1000pph. They will achieve 900 on a good day I'd imagine. When a train has to go off for maintenance is a big concern of mine with there only being 2 of them.
