Universal Orlando will open Jimmy Fallon ride in April

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 Tonight Show."

"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 Universal Orlando.

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.

"The Tonight Show" is broadcast on NBC, which is a sister company of Universal.
