If you've seen any of the seven high-octane "Fast & Furious" films, you already know what it feels like to have adrenaline coursing through your veins. What you feel watching Vin Diesel race a 1970 Dodge Charger on screen, however, is nothing compared to what you'll feel racing alongside him at "Fast & Furious: Supercharged," a new attraction based on the popular franchise, opening in 2017 at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida.
"Led by film stars Vin Diesel (Dom Toretto), Dwayne Johnson (Hobbs), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty), and Tyrese Gibson (Roman), guests will feel like part of the 'Fast family' as they embark on a thrilling new Fast & Furious adventure," Universal Orlando Resort said in a press release. "They will be immersed in the underground racing world made famous in the films, explore the headquarters of Toretto and his team, and even get to check out some of the supercharged cars they've seen on the big screen. Then, guests will board specially designed vehicles and take off on an adrenaline-pumping ride with their favorite stars from the films."
"Fast & Furious" is Universal Pictures' highest-grossing film franchise of all time. Since the release of the first film in 2001, the series has grossed nearly $3.9 billion at the worldwide box office. The most recent film, "Furious 7," was released in April and became the fifth-highest-grossing film of all time, with more than $1.5 billion in global box office sales.
"Fast & Furious: Supercharged" will replace "Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue" and "Disaster: A Major Motion Picture Starring You!" Disaster will close on Sept. 8, followed by Beetlejuice later this year.
