We’re just one day away from the official grand opening of Race Through New York starring Jimmy Fallon and Universal Orlando’s hype machine is on full throttle.

With Jimmy Fallon taping episodes of “The Tonight Show” this week in the theme park, even his own new ride isn’t safe from a little ridicule. While showing off the ride to singer Blake Shelton, “The Voice” star doesn’t hesitate to fire a few deadpan zingers at Fallon.


Among my favorite one-liners:

  • As Shelton first encounters Hashtag the Panda: “This is what you worked three and a half years on?”
  • While walking around the ride’s themed queue: “This really does remind me of 30 Rock which is… an office building. That’s so exciting.”
  • Upon receiving 3D glasses: “They wouldn’t give you a real ride so we’re going to go in and look at a movie screen with 3D glasses on.”
  • Sometimes, jokes are funny because they’re true. Find out for yourself when Race Through New York starring Jimmy Fallon officially opens tomorrow.
