WATCH: You Will Be Able to Ride Jimmy Fallon in 2017
Bring your friends!
When he wasn’t being covered in puppies with Drew Barrymore, Jimmy Fallon announced on The Tonight Show that he will be honored with a ride at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida in 2017. “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” will be a 3-D ride to replace the Twister, which is set to close on Nov. 2.
Fallon likened his multi-dimensional Tonight Show experience to Harry Potter rides. “It’s like that,” he says. “Except instead of Harry Potter, it’s me, and instead of Hogwarts, it’s New York City.”
“The technology is 4-D … I think legally we have to say 3-D. If you really do it right, you can get up to like 8-D.”
A post on the Universal Studios blog notes that their creative team has collaborated with Fallon’s comedy writers to bring the ride through “colorful characters, famous landmarks and anything else that comes to Jimmy’s mind” to life.
