But that’s not the only Secret Life of Pets fun coming your way! Just before the first film’s release Universal and Illumination Entertainment confirmed that an attraction was in the works for Universal Studios Hollywood, expecting to open sometime between 2017 and 2018 on the former location of Soundstage 28, next to Transformers. This would be the first version of the ride and the following years, duplicates are rumored for Universal Island of Adventure in Florida as well as Universal Studios Japan. The ride is currently rumored to be a trackless dark-ride adventure through the streets of New York, full of animatronic characters and multiple ride sequences.
