Think your concern is valid, however it's not really fair to compare to Epic Universe, even by modern standards Universal is pushing this project hard and it's clearly resulting in some of the fastest construction progress we have seen from any theme park project. Factor in the fact that SFQ is being built in the middle of a desert (no exaggeration) so significantly more work for infrastructure and utilities, where as Epic can just connect at the end of the road. But as with anything in the Middle East believe it when you see it, especially the specs for Falcons Flight coaster - vapour ware vibes.
