Actually, I'm pretty sure HRRR was delayed due to difficulties with it's more unique elements.Not sure if you can really compare this to Rip Ride Rockit; Falcon's Fury is delayed because it is first of its kind; Rip Ride Rockit was not delayed because it was a first of its kind revolution thing.
The delay is partly BGT's fault as well, they were too optimistic and announced an opening date even before any tests had been done.
In any case, I can't wait 'till it finally goes open and ride this thing
I expect capacity issues, it looks like it can hold less than the sand storm and I'm sure the ride will be long and agonizing. Whatever though the wait will be worth itHopefully this ride won't be like Cheetah Hunt, for which one would have to wait about three hours before riding for the first ~6 months of being open, especially since the queue isn't as big or well-insulated from the outdoors...
