newest ride Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon has seen quite the success since its April 6th opening. The thrill experience pits guests against “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon for a fun, adventurous ride through the Big Apple. But so far it’s not the ride itself that is getting the rave reviews but the new “Virtual Line” experience.
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon is the first Universal Orlando ride to use Virtual Line technology. This allows riders to check out the rest of the attractions, shows and rides at the park while “waiting in line” at the new ride. Because this is a brand new technology, Best of Orlando thought we’d give you some tips to make your wait time and ride more enjoyable:
1. Download the Official Universal Orlando App - The very first thing you’ll want to do upon arriving to Universal is download the Official Universal Orlando App. Here is where you will reserve your spot on the ride. Simply find the “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” image then tap on “Virtual Line” and Reserve. Select how many are in your party and your preferred return time. If your preferred time does not show up it might mean the wait isn’t too bad. In that case you can head straight to the attraction or go into Stand-By line, if available. Guests can also reserve their spot in line at kiosks located at the front of the attraction.
2. Begin Your Race - Once your wait time is over you will proceed to the ride where you will get a colored Peacock Card. Don’t forget to get this card! It will move you through the interactive pre-show areas and on to ride.
3. Watch for Your Color - There are changing lights in the interactive pre-show area. Keep an eye on these lights because once the color matches your Peacock Card you will proceed to the ride.
