You all know I love to visit Universal Studios with my family! It’s only 30 minutes away from our house and it’s always one of our go to destination especially for the holidays! Grinchmas is my favorite time of year! Now Universal Studios Hollywood (the world-class destination) is celebrating a milestone 50th anniversary with the much-anticipated opening of the “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” thrill ride. It’s an all new immersive experience surrounding “The Simpsons Ride,” and a “Nighttime Studio Tour” as part of the theme park’s pioneering epic transformation.
It’s also undergoing a remodel which is a monumental undertaking and is the most ambitious in the theme park’s storied 50-year history. It will radically alter and reimagine its familiar footprint as The Entertainment Capital of L.A. sets its sights on the next 50 years. From its humble beginnings five decades ago, Universal Studios Hollywood has emerged as one of the most progressive and exciting theme park experiences anywhere, while remaining true to its roots of immersing guests in the awe-inspiring world of movie-making magic.
This gripping, technologically-advanced new ride is inspired by Universal Pictures’ most successful film franchise of all time will feature the film’s original cast members. It will propel guests into the high-stakes underground world of fast cars and daring escapades traveling at accelerated speeds of up to 120 miles per hour. Situated within a newly constructed 65,000 square foot building on the legendary backlot, the high speed, 3D-HD ride will reunite stars from the Fast & Furious series—Vin Diesel (Dominic “Dom” Toretto), Dwayne Johnson (Luke Hobbs), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty Ortiz), Tyrese Gibson (Roman Pearce) and Luke Evans (Owen Shaw)—in a revolutionary mega-attraction, conceived as a new installment to the dynamic film series that can only be experienced at The Entertainment Capital of L.A.
The excitement that these new rides, attractions and themed immersive lands will bring to guests is only a prelude to the highly-anticipated arrival of “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™” in 2016.
I can’t wait to ride “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” and I’m counting the days until “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™” in 2016. It’s an exciting to visit Universal Studios Hollywood. If you’re in the Los Angeles area it’s a must see!
