New Details Emerge on Universal Orlando’s Fast & Furious Attraction

Universal Orlando’s newest attraction, Fast & Furious – Supercharged, will soon race into Universal Studios Florida and bring one of the world’s hottest film franchises to life in a whole new way. Fast & Furious is a global phenomenon and one of the highest-grossing film franchises of all time. Millions of people from all over the world have been captivated by the action-packed storylines, unique characters and high-speed cars.

In Spring 2018, the next chapter of this blockbuster franchise will come to life with Universal Orlando’s new attraction: Fast & Furious – Supercharged. Guests will have the opportunity to actually live the excitement they’ve seen on the big screen in a high-octane ride experience where they will become part of the Fast family.

Guests will encounter more of their favorite Fast characters than ever before in Fast & Furious – Supercharged. For the first time ever, Tej (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) will join the star-studded cast of the attraction, which includes Dom (Vin Diesel), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and criminal mastermind Owen Shaw (Luke Evans).

Fast & Furious – Supercharged will be the only place where to see – and even take photos with – 15 supercharged Fast & Furious cars – many of them driven by some of the favorite Fast family members. Each vehicle, including Dom’s iconic Dodge Charger and Letty’s Turbo Truck, has been crafted by Dennis McCarthy, the man behind the cars for the Fast & Furious films.

Guests will be able to select a virtual queue time to ride Fast & Furious – Supercharged via the Official Universal Orlando Resort Mobile App or at kiosks located near the attraction entrance. While they wait for their ride time, they can enjoy other experiences throughout Universal Studios Florida.

The attraction will feature an original Fast & Furious story that expands upon the films and brings guests face-to-face with their favorite Fast characters.

As soon as they approach the attraction, guests will see Dom’s Dodge Charger parked outside – and know exactly where they are: the underground headquarters of the “Fast family.”

Inside, they’ll be immersed in the ultimate Fast & Furious experience. Hit songs from the films’ soundtracks fill the rooms as memorable scenes from the series play all around. Guests will make their way through familiar places inspired by the films, like the Family Room – complete with photos of the Fast family – and Tej’s high-tech War Room.

Guests are invited to attend a race after-party that can’t be missed, and Tej arranges for a custom party bus to get them there.

As they make their way to the party, Dom calls with an urgent message. Owen Shaw is headed their way. A high-speed chase ensues, and guests must rely on the Fast family to lead them to safety. But will it be enough to keep them and the gang from the clutches of Shaw?

More details about Fast & Furious – Supercharged will be released over time.
