Universal Reveals New Details About "Fast & Furious - Supercharged"

Universal Orlando is working around the clock to put the finishing touches on Universal Studios Florida's newest attraction: Fast & Furious – Supercharged. Fast & Furious is all about adrenaline and action-packed thrills. All of those awe-inspiring experiences are being used to create the next chapter in this blockbuster franchise with an all-new theme park ride that will immerse you directly into the storyline (alongside your favorite characters) and make you a part of the Fast family forever.


Four details exclusive to Universal Orlando’s version of this ride will make it the ultimate Fast & Furious experience:
  • New Story
  • New Characters
  • Supercharged Cars
  • Virtual Line
An Original Fast & Furious Story

The Fast & Furious – Supercharged building has become the new home base of operations. You’ll get to explore familiar scenes inspired by the films, including Tej’s high-tech War Room and the Family Room—complete with photos of the Fast family.


Before Guests even step inside the attraction, they'll be immersed in the story. They will first encounter Dom’s iconic car parked outside. Dom invites you to attend a race after-party that you won’t want to miss. The best part is Tej hooks you up with customized party busses to get you there.

As you make your way to the party, Dom calls with an urgent message: Criminal mastermind Owen Shaw has tracked you down. Now, a high-speed chase is on as the Fast & Furious crew strives to keep you safe from the clutches of Shaw.

New and Returning Characters


Guests will encounter Dom (Vin Diesel), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and more of your favorite Fast & Furious characters during your action-packed experience. But it’s not all good guys that you’ll come face-to-face with either. Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) and his criminal cartel are back with a vengeance. And for the first time ever, Ludacris (Tej Parker) and Jordana Brewster (Mia Toretto) will join the all-star cast of this attraction.

Cars from the Fast & Furious Film Franchise


Universal has worked closely with Dennis McCarthy, the man behind the insane cars for the Fast & Furious films, to craft 15 authentic cars for this new attraction. Fast & Furious – Supercharged is the only place you’ll find these vehicles, including Dom’s iconic Dodge Charger, Letty’s Turbo Truck and more.

Virtual Line

Fast & Furious – Supercharged is the next attraction at Universal Orlando Resort to feature the Virtual Line system. All you need to do is download the free Official Universal Orlando Resort Mobile App, or locate the kiosks near the ride entrance, and select your ride time. While you wait, you can check out the other attractions at Universal Studios.


And that’s not all. Throughout the attraction, you’ll hear hit songs from the Fast & Furious soundtracks. Film clips will play on screens throughout the queue. There will be photo opportunities with cars from this year’s blockbuster The Fate of the Furious after you exit the ride. And you won’t want to miss gearing up with “Family Forever” merchandise in the gift shop.

Mark your calendars for next spring and stay tuned here for more details as we take you inside Fast & Furious – Supercharged.

  1. New story my ass. This sounds exactly like the crappy Hollywood ride and looks the same too. What a bore.

    1. Agree'd. Those ride vehicles are the same as the trams in Hollywood and the ones used on the Kong ride here.
      They better be saving all this park money for Dreamworks/Nintendo rides.

  2. Actually, they look like retooled subway cars from Disaster.

  3. What happened to the rumor that this ride was supposed to be a roller coaster? I was hoping that there would be at least *something* to distinguish it from the tram tour version and Skull Island: Reign of Kong. Sigh.
    It's sad to see how much Universal has stagnated creatively these past few years. Much of the parks' 'soul' is gone at this point, and every new attraction just feels like a rehash of all their other screen-based rides, even down to the general premise of each one: you're more or less incidentally riding alongside some big chase through key landmarks of a movie or place (and, also, you happen to be wearing 3D glasses because, um, reasons...?). The only difference from one ride to the next is the scenery and characters. Of course, the 'new' Hulk roller coaster is an exception, but that ride already existed. With how much they're charging for admission and how much they're spending on every new attraction, you'd think they could afford a more engaging and realistic experience than a glorified tunnel of projector screens.
    I genuinely hope this ride is popular with guests, but I personally am not excited. With all the new stuff coming to certain other parks down the road, I think I'll be renewing my SeaWorld 3-park annual pass instead of going to ride this when it opens.
