UNIVERSAL ORLANDO RESORT RELEASES NEW DETAILS AND A FIRST BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT UPCOMING FAST & FURIOUS – SUPERCHARGED ATTRACTION
The highly anticipated opening of Fast and Furious Supercharged is coming ever closer. Until now, we knew very little about the attraction coming to the Universal Orlando Resort. BUT NOW, we have some major details outlining what we can expect from this attraction. I know for myself and many Universal Studios fans, we figured it would be a transplant of the attraction from Universal Studios Hollywood. But it looks and seems as though it is getting a similar treatment as Kong: Skull Island. Large vehicles and probably more scenes than what we have in Hollywood. Regardless, it is exciting to get another attraction at the resort as well as to see how the virtual line system can be implemented and improved upon. Below is the press release regarding the newest attraction coming to the resort as well as a pretty cool Behind the Scenes video showing the making of the attraction!
New Attraction Will Open in Spring 2018 and Bring the Energy, Excitement and High-Octane Adventures of the Blockbuster “Fast & Furious” Films to Life
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.
Fast & Furious is a global phenomenon and one of the highest-grossing film franchises of all time. Millions of people from all over the world have been captivated by the action-packed storylines, unique characters and high-speed cars. In Spring 2018, the next chapter of this blockbuster franchise will come to life with Universal Orlando’s new attraction: Fast & Furious – Supercharged. 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:
THE FAST FAMILY’S ALL HERE – INCLUDING NEW CHARACTERS EXCLUSIVE TO UNIVERSAL ORLANDO’S ATTRACTION
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).
YOU’LL GET TO CHECK OUT 15 AUTHENTIC FAST & FURIOUS CARS – 12 DIRECTLY FROM THE FILMS AND 3 CREATED EXCLUSIVELY FOR THIS ATTRACTION
Fast & Furious – Supercharged will be the only place where you can see – and even 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.
THIS IS THE NEXT ATTRACTION AT UNIVERSAL STUDIOS FLORIDA TO FEATURE THE NEW, POPULAR VIRTUAL LINE SYSTEM
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.
YOU’LL BE IMMERSED IN AN ORIGINAL, SUPERCHARGED STORY
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 – 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?
