Most people have the opposite POV, even placing it above Velocicoaster. (Shocker)
I'm sure this claim isn't coming from "nowhere" but I would really like to see some data on this
1. HRRR's GSAT scores are probably skewed as there isn't really a huge pool of USF rides I would call "amazing"...they're all in IOA
2. It's a coaster, and that certainly helps its cause, I will agree that the vertical lift is interesting and the non-invert loop are very good...but...
3. People often have no idea what they want until you give it to them...A well designed Intamin like Konda or a Mack Hyper would make people forget HRRR ever existed in a heart beat
4. It may suffer from "first coaster" syndrome, which I have no evidence to back up, but considering the amount of people coming to USF per year, it's possible
I again, don't accept that "most people" place it above Veloci, and if they do, bless their heart
Also, I can't imagine Universal is interested in a coaster that doesn't really tie in to any particular IP and wouldn't be surprised if HRRR is on a list somewhere
