Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon

even if you don't know Jimmy Fallon in depth, at least you must have heard about the TV presenter. There is even an attraction entirely dedicated to him and his program. The Tonight Show, at Universal Studios, Orlando.

THE ride it's called Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon and it opened to the public on April 6, 2017, in place of the former Twister attraction.

Jimmy Fallon is well known in the United States and is very successful among Americans. As a form of tribute, then, he received this “gift” of having a 3D simulator inspired by one of the paintings in his program.

The story told by the 3D simulator takes place in New York, where The Tonight Show is recorded.

The details are incredible, they keep your attention from start to finish.

For example, the recording of the show takes place in a skyscraper, where NBC studios are located.

That way you feel immersed in the city, with all those lights, cars, people. It's amazing to come across 5th Avenue, as the attraction allows you to get a taste of it.

How is the attraction dedicated to Jimmy Fallon?

The attraction itself takes place in a kind of flying theater, which has a capacity for 72 people. Once you sit down, just put on your 3D glasses and travel.

When it starts, you're deceptively inside a car and you're head-to-head with Jimmy's vehicle. Together you take a tour of New York. And that's where the magic happens.

That's how it's possible to get to know the city, including getting into traffic near Times Square. The special effects are really cool and you even get wet when, at some point, you dive into the river.

Even if you don't know the host and his program, that doesn't stop you from enjoying the attraction, as the scenery is breathtaking and worth the visit.

Have you thought about visiting the Statue of Liberty? The Empire State? Take a trip to the moon? This is possible in Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon. 

A message for those who get sick easily: the attraction swings a lot at the ends, so those who have a weak stomach may feel some discomfort.

Oh, and you can also feel dizzy when you go out, since it's a lot of movement for a short time, lol.

The duration is very short, something that is no more than five minutes (plus the time it takes to get to the theater).

However, a positive point is that this is an attraction that, depending on the time of day – there are several! -, there is not that much queue. Much is due to the virtual queue, unprecedented in the park.

Through the Universal app, you “put yourself” in line and, in the meantime, you can enjoy other attractions, have a snack, go to the bathroom, etc.

Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon is the park's first attraction to offer this experience.

Getting to the attraction, which is in the New York area, coming from the main entrance, is pretty easy.

Practically, just keep going through the attraction of minions, Shrek 4-D and rock it. It is between A Rock it and the Mummy attraction.

if you come by Hogwarts train, just go left until you reach the place.

As mentioned above, the virtual queue is quite an advance, since you can organize yourself better, in case you are enjoying other attractions in the park or doing other needs.

That's why it's important that you keep an eye on the app and pay attention to the time you've selected. Have a good time!

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets arriving in Orlando or even on the day of the park.

We do not in any way recommend that you do this for a variety of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MAINLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!
