Fast & Furious — Supercharged Now Open at Universal Studios Florida
In late April, Universal Orlando Resort premiered its newest attraction: Fast & Furious — Supercharged at Universal Studios Florida, based on the blockbuster film franchise. Here's what to expect from the immersive experience, which puts you right in the middle of the action with your favorite characters from the hit movies!
Inside Fast & Furious — Supercharged at Universal Studios Florida
Now that this hotly anticipated ride is open for business, fans of the Fast & Furious films can team up with Dom (Vin Diesel), Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Tej (Ludacris) and other key members of "the family." Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) is also on hand, and he's out for revenge with the help of his sinister cartel.
The attraction — which is easy to spot thanks to Dom's Dodge Charger being parked outside — is an authentic recreation of the family's warehouse headquarters, featuring actual props and supercharged vehicles from the films. And gearheads, take note: These cars were created with an assist from Dennis McCarthy, the same designer behind the movies' famous vehicles. What's more, Universal is the only place you can see them!
After entering the attraction, you'll have the opportunity to spend time in the Family Room, Tej's War Room and other locations popularized by the films. You'll then be invited to a post-race celebration aboard a tricked-out party bus ... only to find Owen Shaw hot on your trail! The attraction puts you in the middle of the action as vehicles flip, rockets fire and the tension builds, all set to the films' high-energy soundtracks. The result is Universal's fastest, most furious experience yet!
Even Lines Are Faster at Fast & Furious — Supercharged
Fast & Furious — Supercharged is the latest Universal Studios experience to make use of the resort's Virtual Line system. Instead of standing in an actual line, you just need to select a ride time via the Official Universal Orlando Resort Mobile App, or one of the kiosks conveniently located near the attraction's entrance. Then, head out and enjoy everything else at Universal Studios till it's time to ride.
Beyond instant access to the Virtual Line system, Universal is giving you extra incentive to use the official app. Specifically, you'll get a special mobile experience while you're inside the attraction, including messages from Mia (Jordana Brewster) and other Fast & Furious characters, character bios, quizzes and other fun features.
Fast & Furious Custom Gear Shop
In addition to the ride, Fast & Furious Custom Gear is now open with a wide selection of Fast & Furious merchandise. Here, you can stock up on car decals, license plates, apparel, accessories and other merchandise based on the movies. The store is located across from Lombard's Seafood Restaurant inside Universal Studios.
