Universal Creative found inspiration in the outrageous celebrity races that have become one of the most popular segments of Jimmy’s Tonight Show. Jimmy and his creative team are working closely with Universal to develop the ride’s storyline and bring his vision to life. The experience will seamlessly blend the playful and irreverent world of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” with the incredible technology and imaginative storytelling for which Universal Orlando is known.
The adventure will begin as guests step right into Studio 6B, where Jimmy will challenge them and their fellow audience members to a white-knuckle race. Guests will twist, turn and laugh as they speed through the streets – and skies – of The Big Apple – encountering everything from iconic landmarks to the deepest subway tunnels – and anything else that comes to Jimmy’s mind.
You can watch the announcement here:
“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights on NBC and is the highest rated late-night show in the U.S. Recorded from Studio 6B in Rockefeller Center, the show is hosted by comedian Jimmy Fallon, and also stars announcer Steve Higgins and the award-winning band The Roots.
To make way for this new experience, Twister…Ride It Out will close on November 2.
