My son will be celebrating his birthday next weekend and so we’ll be heading to Universal Studios Hollywood! The last time we went there was 2 years ago and we’re excited to see all the new attractions and changes they’ve made since then. We’re also looking forward to our favorite rides — Jurassic Park, Transformers, Simpsons, and of course, the Studio Tour!
Do you love the Studio Tour at the Universal Studios Hollywood too? Then you’ll love it even more because start June 25, Studio Tour guests will experience the Fast & Furious — Supercharged thrill ride!
Universal Studios Hollywood showcases exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of this upcoming ride. The captivating 90-second footage offers insightful perspective on the making of this adrenaline-charged attraction along with interviews with several of the Fast & Furious franchise cast members and stars of the ride, including Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson. See the video below!
Fast & Furious—Supercharged is a high-octane, adrenaline-fueled thrill ride and new grand finale to the world-famous Studio Tour. The dynamic hydraulic motion-based ride will tell an original Fast & Furious story that fuses sophisticated hyper-realistic special effects with a state-of-the-art 3D audio system and 3D-HD imagery, projected onto the world’s longest and most expansive 360-degree screen.
Spanning nearly 400 feet to encircle Studio Tour guests within a 65,000-square-foot structure on the backlot, the custom-built screen will employ 34 4K projectors and a projection configuration system to envelop guests in unprecedented realism.
Coupled with an intense blend of thrilling effects, Fast & Furious—Supercharged will take guests on a wild ride that begins the moment they board the Studio Tour. Exclusive interstitial content filmed with the cast members will be featured on the tram monitors, highlighting interactions as they engage guests en route to the ride’s climatic scenes. Along the tram route and featured on the ride, sightings of numerous prop cars from the Fast & Furious series, including Dom’s iconic Dodge Charger, will enhance the story.
And of course, Universal Studios Hollywood has other world-class rides and attractions including Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, Super Silly Fun Land, Transformers The Ride, King Kong 360, (which is also part of the Studio Tour), Revenge of the Mummy and Jurassic Park.
