For the past two days TPR was part of the media event for the newest attraction at Universal Orlando - Fast & Furious Supercharged! In addition to this new ride, we also got to experience Voodoo Doughnuts and see a preview of Aventura Hotel which is opening this August. We've got a TON of pictures to show you, and hopefully you were following along as we live tweeted all the fun, but here is what the attraction is all about...

[i][b]Universal Orlando guests can step into the blockbuster franchise and straight into the heart of the Fast & Furious films right alongside the Fast & Furious crew – including Dom, Letty, Hobbs, Tej, Roman and Mia – all played by the series’ superstars.

During the experience, guests will:
- join up with the Fast crew as they feel what it’s like to step into their favorite Fast & Furious film;
- immerse themselves in an authentic recreation of the Fast & Furious crew’s warehouse headquarters – filled with actual props, iconic scenes, authentic details and supercharged vehicles from the films;
-ride with the family and crew as the films’ soundtracks pump, vehicles flip, rockets fire – and the action builds;
- and check out more than a dozen of the supercharged cars from the films – including some of the ones driven by their favorite characters.

Fast & Furious – Supercharged is the next attraction at Universal Studios to feature the new Virtual Line system. Guests can select a time to ride via the Official Universal Orlando Resort Mobile App or at kiosks located near the attraction entrance, and then enjoy other experiences throughout the park until it’s their ride time. Guests can also access a special mobile experience for Fast & Furious – Supercharged on the Official Universal Orlando Resort Mobile App while inside the attraction, including messages from Mia and the rest of the family, character bios, quizzes and more.[/b][/i]

This attraction is NOW OPEN in the San Fransisco section of Universal Studios Orlando. Check out the photos below to see what it is all about!

Love the roof top terrace, but I'm scared the party bus looks a bit similar to the skull island jeep is this a similar ride?

Aren't all rides at Universal pretty much the same these days? Put on some glasses, sit in a thing, watch some stuff on a screen. :roll: I still love Universal, but this seems to be the trend and it's a little sad.

It has been lately, but won't be into the future. Going back to more physical "experiences", like they used to... No 3D glasses and that type of stuff, thankfully.

I mean I've heard pretty mediocre things about the ride itself but everything around it looks pretty well done, especially if you're into cars.

Time to board the party bus! No photos or videos allowed... of course.. ;)


So, what happens on the Fast & Furious Party Bus stays on the Fast & Furious Party Bus.

The first rule of the Fast & Furious Party Bus is we do not speak of the Fast & Furious Party Bus.

Hi thanks for the report. It looks like it was a cool opening. I have read mixed reviews on this attraction and more of them are negative. We are heading down the end of June and I will try it just because it is new. I won't expect to much just try and have fun with it.

It was cool to see they had some of the cast there. I would have enjoyed that. :)
