A new ride? Awesome! Something replacing Twister? Awesome! Jimmy Fallon? Awe… wait.
Good old “Project 727”. You finally came true. From ThemeParkInsider.com: “NBC’s Tonight Show host announced on this evening’s program that Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon will debut at Universal Studios Florida in 2017. Slated to replaced the Twister show in the New York section of the park, the attraction will star Fallon in a 3D adventure that he called “scary,” “fun” and “exciting.”
Was there someone asking for this? When I searched Jimmy Fallon on google, I didn’t see this, I saw a video of Mike Tyson singing a Drake song.
Plus, its a screen attraction. I’m getting sick of those.
From Universal’s Press Release: “Soon, you will get the full Tonight Show experience as you make your way to the fabled Studio 6B for a very special taping in which Jimmy challenges his studio audience to the ultimate race through the greatest city on earth. You’ll rocket through the streets—and skies—of New York City, from the deepest subway tunnels to the tallest skyscrapers, encountering colorful characters, famous landmarks and anything else that comes to Jimmy’s mind—and “that is some weird, wild stuff,” to quote an iconic previous host.”
I guess soon we will have too say “bye” to Bill Paxton.
Universal, I’m disappointed in you.
