Whether you’re a fan of Jimmy Fallon and ‘The Tonight Show’ or you’ve never seen an episode, you’ll want to try this incredible new ride. This April Universal Studios Florida launched 'Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon’ which takes you on a whirlwind adventure through the Big Apple, with state-of-the-art 3D technology and plenty of special effects.
The outside of the attraction has been created to look like the iconic 30 Rock building where filming of the show takes place. Once you step inside, you’ll make your way to Studio 6B to watch the show. What you don’t know, is that you won’t actually be watching a recording, but competing against Jimmy in an action-packed adventure instead. The exciting new attraction will make you feel as though you’re flying high above New York City, as you ascend into the air in the world’s first ever flying theatre.
Soar above the skyscrapers and admire some of New York City’s most iconic landmarks. You’ll zoom past the Statue of Liberty, venture deep underground into the subway and even get splashed as you plunge into the East River! Of course, there will be lots of surprises along the way too, including “some weird, wild stuff” that’s been imagined by Jimmy himself. We don’t want to give too much away, but we’ll let you in on one secret, you’ll be stopping off at a pizzeria along the way, and you’ll actually be able to smell the scent of fresh pizza in the air.
Look out for some familiar faces along the way, as the stars from Jimmy’s hilarious sketches appear. You’ll see Sara from “Ew”, Jimmy in “Tight Pants”, the show’s announcer Steve Higgins and Grammy award-winning band The Roots. As well as all of this, you’ll be able to see real set pieces from the show (one of the longest-running TV programmes in history!), including desk props, cameras and suits that the previous hosts wore.
The attraction will be the first at Universal Studios Florida to have a virtual queuing experience, meaning you can enjoy exploring the park and riding the rest of the attractions, until it’s time for your turn. Simply access the virtual queuing system from the official Universal Orlando Resort app or the kiosks located outside the attraction entrance.
Get ready for a race like no other!
