NEW THEME PARK RIDE FEATURING THE ROCK OPEN AT UNIVERSAL STUDIOS ORLANDO

By Mike Johnson on 2018-04-16 13:26:00

While the attraction will soon have an official grand opening, the Fast & The Furious: Supercharged theme park ride is already undergoing an unannounced "soft-open" at Universal Studios Orlando.  

Based on the feature film franchise, a number of stars from the films, including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson filmed scenes for the ride that will debut in 2018 for Universal Studios Orlando.  

Promotional material for the ride notes, "Join the Fast & Furious family for a full-throttle, high-octane experience where you’ll be immersed in heart-pounding action alongside Dom, Letty, Hobbs and the rest of the crew. You’ll meet up with the team and check out iconic vehicles and memorable locations from the films. Just as the party is getting started an enemy infiltrates your location and a wild chase ensues. You’ll have to keep up with this unbreakable family as they help you escape from danger on this thrilling new ride."

Johnson also filmed scenes that appeared in the final version of Universal Orlando's  now-defunct Disaster! ride, playing a fictional action hero and is currently working with Disney to update their classic Jungle Cruise ride to coincide with his feature film based on the same attraction.

A version of the Fast & Furious: Supercharged ride already open at Universal Studios Hollywood.
