Many folks have been wondering whether a popular franchise seen at Universal Studios Hollywood will make its way to the Universal parks in Central Florida, and it has finally been announced that one of the most successful film franchises of all time will be coming to Universal Orlando.
In addition to the eighth installment of the Fast and the Furious, Universal announced on Tuesday that the Fast & Furious: Supercharged ride at Universal Studios Hollywood will be coming to Universal Studios Florida in 2017. The opening of the ride will be the perfect addition to the parks, as the movie will be opening in April of the same year.
The ride will be its own stand-alone ride, whereas its sister ride in Universal Studios Hollywood is part of the Universal Studios Hollywood tram tour. The new attraction will “feel like part of the ‘Fast family’ as you embark on a thrilling new Fast & Furious adventure that will put you right in the middle of the action,” according to Universal’s official blog.
The Fast and the Furious ride will also have its own unique storyline, which will incorporate cars from the films. “You’ll be immersed in the underground racing world made famous in the films and explore the headquarters of Toretto and his team. Then, you’ll board specially-designed vehicles for an adrenaline-pumping ride with your favorite stars from the films,” says officials.
