New Details About Universal Orlando’s Fast and Furious Ride
Soon, Universal Orlando’s newest attraction, Fast & Furious Supercharged, will race into Universal Studios Florida and bring one of the world’s hottest film franchises to life in a whole new way. In Spring 2018, the next chapter of the blockbuster franchise will come to life. Guests will have the opportunity to actually live the excitement they’ve seen on the big screen in a high-octane ride experience where they will become part of the “Fast family”.
Buckle up – here’s everything you need to know about Fast & Furious Supercharged at Universal Orlando Resort!
You will encounter more of your favorite Fast characters than ever before in Fast & Furious Supercharged. For the first time ever, Tej (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) will join the star-studded cast of the attraction, which includes Dom (Vin Diesel), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and criminal mastermind Owen Shaw (Luke Evans).
Fast & Furious Supercharged will be the only place where you can see (and take photos with) 15 supercharged Fast & Furious cars – many of them driven by some of your favorite Fast family members. Each vehicle, including Dom’s iconic Dodge Charger and Letty’s Turbo Truck, has been crafted by Dennis McCarthy, the man behind the cars for the Fast & Furious films. You will be able to select a time to ride Fast & Furious Supercharged via the Official Universal Orlando Resort Mobile App or at kiosks located near the attraction entrance. While you wait for your ride time, you can enjoy other experiences throughout Universal Studios Florida.
Get ready to live an original Fast & Furious story that expands upon the films and brings you face-to-face with your favorite Fast characters. As soon as you approach the attraction, you see Dom’s Dodge Charger parked outside – and you know exactly where you are. Welcome to the underground headquarters of the “Fast family.” Inside, you’re immersed in the ultimate Fast & Furious experience. Hit songs from the films’ soundtracks fill the rooms as memorable scenes from the series play around you. You make your way through familiar places inspired by the films, like the Family Room – complete with photos of the Fast family plus, and Tej’s high-tech War Room.
You are invited to attend a race after-party that can’t be missed, and Tej arranges for a custom party bus to get you there. As you make your way to the party, Dom calls with an urgent message. Owen Shaw is headed your way. A high-speed chase ensues, and you must rely on the Fast family to lead you to safety. But will it be enough to keep you and the gang from the clutches of Shaw?
So, what the heck does all that fancy hype talk mean? Well, to make it short, Fast and Furious is basically re-skinned Kong vehicles with new theming. We aren’t totally against the concept, but super fans have expressed that they’re ready for some new concepts that don’t contain screens. Are you excited for the new Fast and Furious ride?
