UNIVERSAL CITY, California — Fast & Furious — Supercharged, a new thrill ride at Universal Studios Hollywood, is designed to let fans of the blockbuster movie franchise experience a real adrenaline rush.
The new attraction, which opens today, catapults riders into "the high-stakes underground world of street racing at perceived speeds of 120 mph," said Universal Studios Hollywood in a statement.
"We are thrilled to bring Universal's incredibly compelling film franchise to life," said Larry Kurzweil, president of Universal Studios Hollywood, in a statement.
The red-carpet rollout of the ride included a ceremonial ribbon-cutting by Diesel and crew — who skipped the scissors and used bolt cutters instead.
Tram-riding fans view a 360-degree, 400-foot screen while wearing 3D glasses. Variety points out that although the ride is stationary, riders feel as if they are traveling at 120 mph, with the tram at one point going up a bridge and jumping a river.
For those who can't wait to stand in line for the new attraction, Edmunds provides a deep dive into all things Fast & Furious.
Edmunds says: The new ride is bound to be a major summer highlight for Fast & Furious aficionados.
