Jimmy Fallon Is Catching A Ride At Universal Studios Orlando
Jimmy Fallon is getting his
very own ride at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, the 41 yr. old TV host
announced last week.
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon will open in 2017,
replacing Twister... Ride It Out when it closes today after almost 20
Universal says that riders will enjoy “the full Tonight Show experience as
they’re transported to Studio 6B to race against Jimmy in a crazy adventure
that only he could imagine”.
The host excitedly revealed
the news on his show, but stressed that he wasn't allowed to leak too much
detail. “This is the real deal! It's scary, it's fun, it's
exciting,” he said. “Do you know the Harry Potter rides and all that stuff?
It's like that, except instead of Harry Potter, it's me. And instead of Hogwarts
it's New York City,” he explained.
“But it's insane, the
technology is 3D, it's like moving things, it might even be 4D - does that
count as a dimension, the other little things they have in there? - I think
legally we have to say it's 3D.”
According to Universal, on this “brand-new,
hilarious ride experience,” guests will twist, turn and laugh as they speed
through the streets and skies of The Big Apple, encountering everything from
iconic landmarks to the deepest subway tunnels – “and anything else that comes
to Jimmy's mind.”
Hopefully Universal won't yank the plan now that the
tabloids are all over Fallon's drinking and behavioural issues with rumours his Tonight Show run may be coming to an end.
