In 2020, Universal Studios Hollywood will be taking its guests on a whirlwind journey through New York City in an all-new “The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!” attraction inspired by the 2016 animated film by Illumination.

Adoption day is the biggest rite of passage for every animal looking for a home and now Universal is using this as inspiration for their newest attraction, which answers the question, “What do your pets do when you’re not home?”

According to a release by Universal, this new attraction will be a fully immersive experience where guests will assume the roles of stray puppies as they join a familiar cast of leading characters from “The Secret Life of Pets,” including Max Snowball, Gidget, Chloe, and Duke, along with other animal friends — on the ultimate quest of finding forever homes.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring another exciting Illumination movie-based ride to our guests,” said Karen Irwin, President and COO, Universal Studios Hollywood. “The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!’ will capture the essence of the popular film and invite our guests to live vicariously through some of their favorite characters as they embark on a one-of-a-kind experience only available at Universal Studios Hollywood.”

Universal says this new adventure will blend live, dimensional and animated characters with “hyper-realistic media” as guests zip along a track aboard ride vehicles through wild New York City streets towards the Pet Adoption event and the perfect happy ending for any animal: forever homes.

During the journey, guests will face different challenges, including meeting up with fellow animal pals eager to help guide them toward their destination.

“The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!” will be located adjacent to the popular “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” and “Super Silly Fun Land” attractions.
