Late-night television host Jimmy Fallon has made a name for himself with epic comedic skits and star-studded lip-syncing contests. In 2017, he’ll have something new to tout — his own ride at Universal Orlando Resort.
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon is still in development, but according to announcements, the experience will pit guests against Fallon as they virtually zoom around the Big Apple, including Studio 6B, the set of Fallon’s beloved late-night television show. Iconic New York landmarks will make appearances in the adventure, as well.
The ride is one of many forthcoming additions at Universal Orlando Resort, including the 2016 openings of on-site hotel Loews Sapphire Falls Resort and Skull Island: Reign of Kong, a ride that combines 3-D projections, animatronics and more. Also new in 2017 will be Universal’s Volcano Bay waterpark and Fast & Furious: Supercharged, an attraction based on the film franchise.
