Universal Orlando Resort will open a ride in April that will
take guests on a simulated ride through the streets of New York in a "flying
theater" replicating where late-night host Jimmy Fallon films "The
"Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon,"
which debuts April 6, puts 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. The ride will let guests "visit"
New York landmarks such as the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty as
well as taking them "all the way to the moon and back," according to
The ride will also be the park's first that will use a "virtual
line," which gives guests a bracelet that lets them tour other parts of
the park after they've checked in for the ride.
As part of the ride's promotion, Fallon will tape the show
from Universal Orlando from April 3 through April 6.
