I don't think they want to amplify a reputation that (some) people complain about and that -- reportedly -- they want to move away from... someday.
But to @Disneyhead’s point, if that was Woodbury’s original vision of the park, the marketing should have done a better job spinning it. It’s a non issue now as we know that UC is moving in a different direction. This is a solid fun ride and I’m glad the main strip will only have 2 of this ride type instead of three.

We have 2 parks in the US that regularly boast about their "Coaster Count". Without checking, I think both SF Magic Mountain and Cedar Point are both approaching 20 Coasters per park. If Universal wanted USF to be the projection tech park, their marketing should refocus their messaging to amplify it.
You can boast your coaster count as a park because it’s a lot easier for a group of coasters to each feel unique, compared to the lack of variety for simulators.

Fun fact, maybe it's my Universal theme park bias, but I find Jimmy recently to be the only palatable late night host

Also, to further drive a wedge between us...I find the ride charming, the best simulator in the park,

And, dare I say it, a taste of what a non-headliner would have been at 90's Universal

It fits the park well, it improved an ugly showbuilding, and it has an experimental queue that I quite enjoy

And if Minion Mayhem and The Simpsons Ride (and Supercharged...) were replaced with heavily-physical attractions, I'd appreciate Race Through New York a lot more.

I have a theory that if F&F was some spectacular dark ride or amazing coaster, Fallon would be much more appreciated as a solid non-headliner

I believe Fallon also came on the heals of Kong which was a tad disappointing, so it was sandwiched in the middle of some misses

Then add in IOA getting some outstanding coasters
