Here are a few more details about the supercharged new ride from Universal:
- For the first time ever, Tej (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) will join the star-studded cast of the attraction, which includes Dom (Vin Diesel), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and criminal mastermind Owen Shaw (Luke Evans).
- Fast & Furious – Supercharged will be the only place where you can see – and even take photos with – 15 supercharged Fast & Furious cars – many of them driven by some of your favorite Fast family members. Each vehicle, including Dom’s iconic Dodge Charger and Letty’s Turbo Truck, has been crafted by Dennis McCarthy, the man behind the cars for the Fast & Furious films.
- You will be able to select a time to ride Fast & Furious – Supercharged via the Official Universal Orlando Resort Mobile App or at kiosks located near the attraction entrance.
According to Universal, you’ll be immersed in an original, supercharged story.
As soon as you approach the attraction, you see Dom’s Dodge Charger parked outside – and you know exactly where you are. Welcome to the underground headquarters of the “Fast family.”
Inside, you’re immersed in the ultimate Fast & Furious experience. Hit songs from the films’ soundtracks fill the rooms as memorable scenes from the series play around you. You make your way through familiar places inspired by the films, like the Family Room – complete with photos of the Fast family – and Tej’s high-tech War Room.
You are invited to attend a race after-party that can’t be missed, and Tej arranges for a custom party bus to get you there.
As you make your way to the party, Dom calls with an urgent message. Owen Shaw is headed your way. A high-speed chase ensues, and you must rely on the Fast family to lead you to safety. But will it be enough to keep you and the gang from the clutches of Shaw?
