Universal Orlando is hard at work creating a thrilling new attraction based on the Fast & Furious franchise. The park is taking everything you love about the films including thrilling chases and your favorite characters and putting it into one awe-inspiring experience. Today, we’re giving you a sneak peek inside the attraction with the top things you need to know:
The Family is All There – Not only will you become a part of the Fast Family on this new ride but you’ll also encounter the Fast & Furious members including Dom, Letty, Hobbs, Roman, and more. Other characters include some not so good guys like Owen Shaw and his criminal cartel. And for the first time ever, Ludacris (Tej Parker) and Jordan Brewster (Mia Loretto) will join the all-star cast.
Cars from the Franchise – Universal has worked closely with Dennis McCarthy, the man behind the cars for the Fast & Furious films. Together the duo has created 15 authentic cars for the new attraction. Guests will find Dom’s iconic Dodge Charger, Letty’s Turbo Truck and more.
Original Story – Perhaps the most exciting thing about Fast & Furious – Supercharged is the original story. Guests will be invited to a post-race after party by Dom himself. Tej sets up a customized party bus to get you there but as you ride along Dom calls with an urgent message that criminal mastermind Owen Shaw is after you. A high-speed chase ensues just like one from the film series.
Virtual Line – Fast & Furious - Supercharged is the latest attraction at Universal Orlando to feature Virtual Line System. Guests can download the Official Universal Orlando Resort Mobile App or locate the kiosks near the ride entrance, and select the preferred ride time. While you wait you can explore the rest of the park. When it’s your turn to ride, you can come back to the attraction without waiting in line.
Fast & Furious Soundtracks – Throughout the ride you will hear songs from the Fast & Furious soundtracks. Favorite clips from the franchise will play throughout the queue. There will also be photo opportunities with cars from this year’s The Fate of the Furious after the ride.
Stay tuned for more details about the new Fast & Furious – Supercharged ride coming to Universal Orlando. In the meantime you can enjoy the park’s new holiday celebrations with discounted tickets here on Best of Orlando. .
