It is a bad accounting practice then. As the return of getting it down will result in a roi being greater as today’s cost or lower then future cost.
For that specific aspect of the project return on investment would be lower but I think it’s probably a more complex decision than tha. Not that I would agree with how they do it.

Do we know about any work that’s been done with the GoTG actors for this ride? I remember seeing video of Chris Pratt talking about shooting scenes for M:BO well before that ride opened. I’m assuming the coaster will feature a Star-Lord AA...

Some new pictures from Vlodrop showing off a new motorized spinning train. Is this what we should expect for GotG? It's more in line with a standard car design but has a "simple" looking gimmick (simple looking, not simple to make work).

The layout is a slightly (?) updated family shuttle, so that can be ignored.

Nice find.

Looking at those trains, I think I can see why it might not be a super thrilling coaster (read as inversions/high speed). They sit up so high and have a (relatively) tiny base. The gimmick seems cool enough but to most it might just look like another spinner, which I'm sure Disney will make sure to tell everyone that it is not.

Edit: It also looks like FLY going into Phantasialand but turned right side up. That ride opens next year I believe so if it runs correctly, then I'd hope that means they got the bugs worked out for this system.
And for those of you that don't know what FLY looks like:
It'll be that system.

Isn't that the new Time Traveler's gimmick?

If they properly maintain it, its going to be killer. if they let it fall into disrepair ( Im looking at you Space Mountain) Then get ready for Fastpass nightmare with lines.

Reminds me of Escape from Gringotts.

I think “regulated” might be a better way to described Time Traveler than “controlled,” which is how it is being promoted. I don’t think Mack’s system is programmed so that they decide exactly when and how you spin. Instead they don’t let you flail about wildly. Mack and Herschend talk about a magnetic break, but no motive power.

Macks setup is basically locked or unlocked. Obviously it isn't spinning like crazy throughout the ride (probably some sort of limiter or a system that needs a lot of force to spin), but it's not motorized like you said. And if it was motorized, the cars would be synced up to spin the same amount at certain moments.

Also, Time Traveler seems like a blast.

Time Travel’s unlock is not the same as prior models with a completely free spin. Instead it is limited by the brake even when spinning.

I actually edited my post to say that but I was too late.
Makes sense though. Imagine TT with a spinning wild mouse train. That would be nauseating.
