Fast & Furious Supercharged: How a Theme Park Ride Takes You to the Streets


Opening June 25th at Universal Studios Hollywood, Fast & Furious: Supercharged brings the incredibly successful movie series into the theme park realm for the first time. The new ride has been incorporated into the classic Universal Studio Tour, and includes several stars from the films, including Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Luke Evans.

A few weeks back, I was given an early look at what to expect from Supercharged from Universal Studios Hollywood Executive Show Producer, Chick Russell, whose previous work for Universal theme parks included Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Transformers: The Ride. Russell showed me a computer walk-through of the entire ride, including the lead-up portion setting up the scenario and then the main ride itself, which involves huge screens on both sides of the guests, putting them into the middle of a high speed street race, in a manner Universal first used for their King Kong attraction.
