“Fast & Furious-Supercharged” reunites stars from the action series and features Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Luke Evans as the franchise’s heroes try to save one of their own from an international crime cartel in a new story.
The theme park will air a making-of special of the attraction during the broadcast of “Fast Five” on NBC on March 21. The promo stars Johnson, Rodriguez and Gibson. Universal Pictures will release “Furious 7” on April 3.
“I get a chance to become Luke Hobbs and kick ass … all in 3D,” says Johnson of the attraction that will become the new grand finale to the park’s Studio Tour.
The hydraulic motion-based ride will combine special effects with a state-of-the-art 3D audio system and 3D-HD imagery projected onto the world’s longest and most expansive 360-degree screen that spans nearly 400 feet in length to encircle Studio Tour guests within a newly constructed, 65,000-square-foot structure on the backlot. The custom-built screen will employ 34 4K projectors and a new projection configuration system to envelop guests.
The tram route also includes prop cars from the “Fast & Furious” series, including Diesel’s Dodge Charger.
