Huge news from today as it was revealed that “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” will officially open on Thursday, April 6 at Universal Studios Florida! Jimmy announced the opening date himself on last nights episode of the Tonight Show.
Guests will be able to get the ultimate “Tonight Show” experience by getting up close and personal with the show’s most hilarious moments before taking off on a wild race through the Big Apple against Jimmy Fallon himself. The race course includes New York’s biggest landmarks, sight, sounds, and even smells such as New York City pizza! But you’re racing Jimmy Fallon, which you know means surprises!! So hold on tight for the wackiest race on earth.
So, you’re still confused on exactly what will happen on the ride? Let’s explain in a little more detail. After a debriefing in Studio 6B, guests will board the world’s first-ever flying theater which seats up to 72 audience members for their race against Jimmy Fallon. They’ll race through the streets of New York and even to the moon and back, encountering iconic landmarks from the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building. Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the making of the ride.
The grand opening of the attraction is going to be celebrated with special celebrity guests! Universal hasn’t released who the special guests will be, but after seeing Jimmy’s hilarious ride on Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket with Kevin Hart, we hope to see the duo take another ride together on Jimmy’s own ride!
The opening date wasn’t the only thing revealed. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” will take their show on the road for tapings at Universal Orlando Resort from April 3 to April 6. Additional details will be released very soon about how to become part of the audience.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” will be the first attraction to feature a Virtual Line experience at Universal Studios Florida. This means spending less time in line and more time experiencing the thrills of Universal Orlando Resort!
This new system allows guests to virtually wait in line while still enjoying the rest of Universal Studios. You’ll be able to access this through The Official Universal Orlando Resort App or at kiosks located outside the attraction entrance. When it’s your time, just head over to attraction, walk inside, and get ready for the race of a lifetime!
