Universal Orlando has lifted the veil on Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, the brand new ride coming to Universal Studios Florida in Spring 2017.
Before even boarding the ride, guests will be able to spend time in Studio 6B. This area will act as an interactive pre-show. Guests will be able to meet and dance with Hashtag the Panda, send personalized thank you notes, and watch clips from the show. It’s a first of its kind pre-show.
The ride itself will take place in a first-ever flying theater that fits up to 72 guests per cycle. On the ride you’ll zoom past iconic New York landmarks with Jimmy Fallon himself. The attraction is chalked full of cameos from Jimmy’s popular characters and other familiar faces. The band for the show, The Roots, are even creating the score for the attraction.
Finally, you’ll be able to step into an interactive museum of sorts and see the history of The Tonight Show. There’ll be real set pieces, suits of past hosts, iconic desk props, video cameras that were used to record the show, and a Jimmy Fallon display.
While not officially announced today, sources familiar with the new attraction have told Orlando Informer that guests will be able to make reservations to experience the ride opposed to waiting in a normal line.
