Jimmy Fallon Ride Coming to Universal Studios

Jimmy Fallon’s roller coast week continues as the comedian prepares for his own Universal Studios ride.

“The Tonight Show” host revealed Tuesday that Universal Orlando Resort will debut a ride in 2017 called “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

“It’s scary, it’s fun, it’s exciting,” Fallon said. “Do you know the ‘Harry Potter’ rides? It’s like that, except instead of Harry Potter, it’s me. Instead of Hogwarts, it’s New York City.”

The theme park attraction starts at a recreated Studio 6B before hitting major Big Apple destinations.

“Our team found inspiration in the outrageous celebrity races that have become one of the most popular segments of Jimmy’s ‘Tonight Show,'” Jason Surrell, creative director for Universal Creative, wrote on the company’s blog. “Since Universal Studios Florida has long been famous for placing guests in the middle of their favorite movies and TV shows, we thought it was a perfect fit.”
