The official blog of Universal Orlando Resort has been putting out lots of news stories for our team to report on!
As Magical DIStractions informed our readers, Skull Island: Reign of King Kong will open in the Summer of 2016. We also let you guys in on the news of the opening of Volcano Bay, the third highly-immersive park to join the Universal Orlando Resort! In August, Magical DIStractions reported on the enhancements set to be made to The Incredible Hulk Coaster. Just last week, it was announced that the 25th Anniversary Concert Series was returning. While it might not be as Earth shattering as the other announcements, we also covered the story of the addition of Dufftoberfest Brew to Universal’s distinct brews.
Today, The official blog of Universal Orlando Resort let us in on even more exciting news! Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon is coming to Universal Studios Florida in 2017! This new attraction will be housed in the building currently occupied by Twister…Ride It Out! which is already set to wind down on November 2, 2015.
The concept behind the new 3D ride puts Guests in the middle of one of the most popular segments of Fallon’s Tonight Show, celebrity races. The following is an excerpt from The official blog of Universal Orlando Resort:
“Soon, you will get the full Tonight Show experience as you make your way to the fabled Studio 6B for a very special taping in which Jimmy challenges his studio audience to the ultimate race through the greatest city on earth.
You’ll rocket through the streets—and skies—of New York City, from the deepest subway tunnels to the tallest skyscrapers, encountering colorful characters, famous landmarks and anything else that comes to Jimmy’s mind—and “that is some weird, wild stuff,” to quote an iconic previous host.”
Jimmy himself gave his audience and viewers some insight on last night’s show.
Stayed tuned to the Magical DIStractions site as we will report on more details as they are released!
