The roller coaster promises to immerse riders in the film’s universe, bringing them closer to the action than ever before.

There is currently no set date for when the coaster will be completed and opened, but Universal Studios Hollywood seems very excited about this highly anticipated addition coming soon!
Roller Coaster Rumors: The Initial Buzz
Rumors about this exhilarating roller coaster took flight in October when a geotechnical study from the amusement park was leaked on social media. The study hinted at a thrilling route for the coaster’s track, starting from the upper lot, soaring over the Starway Escalator, and plunging towards the lower lot before ascending again. As theme park blogger Alicia Stella noted, the geotechnical study substantiated the hitherto whispered rumors and sparked keen anticipation for the ambitious project
Fast and Furious Theme: Decoding the Experience
While the Roller Coaster is still under wraps, the buzz in the theme park blogging community is hard to ignore. Based on concept art that surfaced on the internet, the ‘Fast and Furious’ coaster may feature cars that “drift” on the track, mimicking the high-octane action sequences from the movies. This unique feature could redefine the traditional coaster experience, adding an element of unpredictability and thrill that aligns perfectly with the essence of the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise.
Preparation and Concerns: Entertainment Construction Ahead
In the lead-up to the construction phase, the theme park has been proactive in ensuring a seamless transition. They’ve run sound level tests around the proposed location for the coaster, assessing the potential sound footprint. Additionally, certain attractions such as the Animal Actors show, the Special Effects show, and the Production Central Store have been temporarily closed to accommodate the upcoming attraction. However, this development has sparked concerns among nearby residents about possible noise pollution, an issue Universal Studios Hollywood will need to address proactively.
Awaiting More Roller Coaster Details
While the announcement has generated a lot of excitement, further details about the thrilling ‘Fast and Furious’ coaster are yet to be revealed. The unveiling of its design, technological marvels, and potential opening date remain eagerly anticipated. Until then, Fast and Furious fans and thrill-seekers worldwide can only imagine the rush of riding on this trailblazing roller coaster.
The Hollywood location of Universal Studios already hosts a Fast & Furious attraction called Supercharged as part of the studio tour. This was first introduced in 2015. In this interactive experience, attendees don 3D glasses and participate in a high-speed freeway pursuit. The chase involves characters from the franchise, including Dominic Toretto, played by Vin Diesel, his team and family, and Owen Shaw, portrayed by Luke Evans
