Travel Weekly report that Universal Orlando resort will open a simulated ride that replicates the film location of Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show”. The ride will open this April, and take guests down the streets of New York in a “flying theatre”.
The ride dubbed “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon,” debuts April 6. It will put as many as 72 audience members in a facsimile version of Rockefeller Center’s Studio 6B, where “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” is shot.
Universal Orlando told Travel Weekly that the ride will include NYC’s iconic Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty, and take riders “all the way to the moon and back”.
According to Travel Weekly, the ride will part of a new system called the “virtual line”. Guests will wear a bracelet allowing them to check in for the ride, while exploring other parts of the park – reducing the time they have to wait in line.
Fallon will tape the show from Universal Orlando from April 3 through April 6 to promote the new ride.
“The Tonight Show” is broadcast on NBC, which is a sister company of Universal.
