Jimmy Fallon is speeding towards Universal Orlando in the first promotional art for the new “Race Through New York” attraction. The new attraction is due to open in 2017, and will replace Twister in the New York section of the park. There’s no word on what guests will be racing on, but now we get a clear look at what Fallon will be using to battle guests.
The Tonight Show host shared some early looks at him in Motion Capture gear for the new ride earlier this year, and now we get a very sleek looking vehicle. Guests will race through New York City as they see famous landmarks and even dodge New York traffic. It’s going to be a fun, high speed attraction for the entire family.
There’s no word on an opening date, though rumors say it could be ready for soft openings as soon as Christmas! While that seems a bit ambitious, the ride vehicles are said to be similar to ride vehicles on Forbidden Journey, so early soft openings could happen after the first of the year.
