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 is called Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon and opened to the public on April 6, 2017, in the 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 frames of 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 hold your attention from start to finish.

For example, the recording of the program takes place in a skyscraper, where the 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 taste it.

How is the attraction dedicated to Jimmy Fallon?

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

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

This is how it is possible to get to know the city, including taking a transit near Times Square. The special effects are pretty cool and you even get wet when, at one point, you dive into the river.

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

Have you ever thought about visiting the Statue of Liberty? The Empire State? Take a trip to the moon? That's 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 with a weak stomach may feel a certain discomfort.

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

The duration is very short, something that does not exceed 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 – there are several! -, there is not so much queue. Much is due to the virtual queue, unprecedented in the park.

Through the Universal application, you “put yourself” in line and, meanwhile, 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 located in the New York area, from the main entrance, is very easy.

Practically, just go ahead passing by the attraction of the 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 we mentioned above, the virtual queue is quite an advance, since you can better organize yourself, in case you are enjoying other attractions in the park or doing other needs.

Therefore, it is important that you keep an eye on the application and be aware of the time you have selected. Have a good time!
