Jimmy Fallon Getting His Own Universal Orlando Ride
Late-night television host Jimmy Fallon announced Tuesday that he will be getting his very own theme park attraction at Universal Orlando Resort in 2017.
As host of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”—America’s top-rated late-night talk show—Fallon will be the focus of a brand new ride slated to open in 2017 at Universal Studios Florida called “Race through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
Guests who visit the theme park will get a first-hand experience of the Tonight Show’s Studio 6B set, but with more of a focus on Fallon’s infamous sense of humor. Along with Fallon and his creative team, Universal Studios is looking to develop the ride’s storyline while also staying true to the comedian’s unique style.
As guests enter the attraction, they will experience a race against Fallon through the streets and skies of New York City. From iconic landmarks to the subways of the Big Apple, park visitors will take a trip through the city via the warped minds of Fallon and his team.
The official YouTube page of Universal Orlando Resort shared Fallon’s announcement:
To make room for the Fallon-inspired ride, Universal Studios will close the “Twister…Ride It Out” attraction on Nov. 2. For more information about the amusement park and the company’s plans, check out the official Universal Studios website.
