In the long run, this might hurt Universal slightly, but I feel it might be better since they won't directly compete with Sea World. It is wise for them to perfect it than come out with a subpar ride.
I planned on going to USO around June and figured the HRRR would be open for a month by then. My personal scaredy-cat rule is "NEVER RIDE A NEW RIDE UNTIL IT'S BEEN OPEN FOR A MONTH" --->>>> wimpy pyra.
So now I'm partly freaking out b/c w/ the HRRR's delay, my June visit may place it squarely on opening day. Wahhhhh I might be too scared to ride. Oh well... Manta here I come.
It will be worth the wait!
