TV star Jimmy Fallon to get own ride at Universal Orlando
POSTED 30 Oct 2015 . BY Tom Anstey
US TV host Jimmy Fallon is getting his own ride at Universal Studios Orlando, with a new attraction coming to the theme park in 2017.

'Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon' will take riders on a simulated journey through New York, based on skits and segments featured in the popular Tonight Show. While not much is being revealed about the ride, it will be based around entering Studio 6B and then being challenged to a race by Fallon, which will go through the subways and skyscrapers while encountering characters and famous landmarks.



“Jimmy wanted a fun and hilarious adventure that was also a valentine to his hometown of New York City — and that’s exactly what you’re going to experience when “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” opens at Universal Studios Florida in 2017,” said Jason Surrell, creative director at Universal.

“Our team found inspiration in the outrageous celebrity races that have become one of the most popular segments of Jimmy’s Tonight Show and since Universal Studios Florida has long been famous for placing guests in the middle of their favourite movies and TV shows, we thought it was a perfect fit.”
