In a synergetic move, NBC late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon will soon be getting his own attraction at Universal Orlando.
“Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” is the name of the attraction that will give guests a full “Tonight Show” experience in the famous Studio 6B…until Fallon challenges the audience to the ultimate race through New York City.
Using a 4D technology, probably similar to the Spiderman and Transformer attractions at Universal Orlando, guests will rocket through the streets—and skies—of NYC, from the deepest subway tunnels to the tallest skyscrapers, encountering colorful characters, famous landmarks and anything else that comes to Jimmy’s mind.

The new attraction is expected to open in 2017, and will go in the space currently occupied by “Twister: Ride It Out” at Universal Studios Florida, which will close November 2.
Here is the official announcement for “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” made by Fallon himself on his show last night:
