Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon is now open at Universal Orlando! Fans of the show will get a chance to race against Jimmy Fallon, passing Big Apple landmarks along the way. Let’s take a closer look at the new attraction:
The experience begins the moment you step inside the queue. There are two interactive pre-show areas filled with over 60 years of “The Tonight Show” memorabilia. Riders can also play games and send “Thank You” notes from interactive desks. Be on the lookout for live performances from The Ragtime Gals barbershop quartet and appearances by “The Tonight Show’s” mascot Hashtag Panda.
Eventually you will come across Jimmy himself when he gives you a safety spiel with a band member from the Roots rapping about ride safety. You will then walk inside the theater and take a seat in the red colored chairs that look like actual seats from “The Tonight Show.” Once seated the adventure begins and guests will be taken through the streets of New York seeing such landmarks as the Empire State Building and even smelling actual New York pizza.
“Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” also features Virtual Lines. Guests will need to download The Official Universal Orlando Resort Mobile App and select your return time on the day of your visit. You can also select your ride time at the kiosk located in front of the attraction. While you wait you can enjoy the rest of Universal’s attractions until it is time to take a ride with Fallon. Once you enter the ride you will be given a colored Peacock Card. Hold on to the card because when your color is called it’s time for the race!
