Universal Orlando Resort has announced plans to add the new "Fast & Furious: Supercharged" attraction in 2017.
The new ride will have an original storyline that takes guests into the world of underground racing made famous by the Fast & Furious film franchise, led by stars Vin Diesel (Dom Toretto), Dwayne Johnson (Hobbs), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty) and Tyrese Gibson (Roman). After exploring the headquarters of Toretto and his team, where guests will have the chance to check out some of the cars from the movies, they will board specially-designed vehicles to take off on an adrenaline-pumping ride.
In addition, Universal Studios Hollywood introduced its own Fast & Furious—Supercharged this summer, which serves as the grand finale to its Studio Tour.
Fast & Furious: Supercharged will replace Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue and Disaster: A Major Motion Picture Starring You! at Universal Studios Florida. Disaster will close on September 8, 2015, and Beetlejuice will close later this year.
Fast & Furious is Universal Pictures’ highest-grossing film franchise of all time. Together, all seven installments have grossed nearly $3.9 billion at the worldwide box office. The most recent film, Furious 7, was released in April and became the fifth-highest-grossing film of all time, with more than $1.5 billion in global box office.
More details about Universal Orlando’s Fast & Furious attraction will be released in the future.
