The work walls have come down in front of the entrance to Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon at Universal Studios Florida. We’re one step closer to seeing this soft open! Construction is continuing inside the entrance and queue, but there’s been plenty of ride testing going on and a private event was held at the ride earlier in the week. We’ll keep you posted on when the general public may have their first chance to experience this new attraction, so stay tuned!
Plus, we’re taking a look at the nighttime lighting for the new ride as well as some minor changes in the store. The last few nights have seen the marquee entrance sign all lit up as well as windows and accent lights on in the building. Check out the video and photo update below and stay tuned for more #FallonRide updates coming soon!
