The dust has barely settled from its latest “Despicable Me” and Super Silly Fun Land additions, but Universal Studios Hollywood announced plans to rev forward with a new “Fast and Furious”-based attraction, along with a night tour and other expansions.
Under its ongoing five-year transformation plan, the park on Tuesday announced “Fast and Furious: Supercharged,” a 3-D thrill ride within the back lot studio tour, as well as plans to run the tour at night. Both will open in 2015 and be exclusive to the Universal City park. Marking its 50th anniversary this year, the theme park is also expanding its existing “Simpsons” attraction to add new restaurants and stores based on the fictional town of Springfield.
Based off their six — seven as of next year — street-racing movies starring Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker that have grossed more than $2 billion worldwide, “Fast and Furious: Supercharged” will close out the Studio Tour in a new 50,000-square-foot building that will utilize a 360-degree 3-D screen and hydraulics to immerse riders in a high-speed chase just like in the blockbuster movies.
“We’re redesigning the tour’s finale,” Universal Studios Hollywood spokeswoman Audrey Eig said. “There’s no retrofitting. It’s going to be an entirely new location at the end of the tour.”
“Supercharged” will do for the “Fast and the Furious” brand what a 360-degree, 3-D screen does for King Kong in “King Kong 360 3-D” toward the beginning of the tour.
Also debuting next year is the dark side of the Studio Tour — where the traditional daytime tour will also operate at night and feature an eerie visit to Bates Motel, as well as appearances by Dracula, Frankenstein and the Hunchback of Notre Dame. “Fast and Furious: Supercharged” will be part of the tour, day or night.
“‘The Studio Tour’ has been our signature attraction for the past 50 years, taking millions of guests from around (the) world on exciting behind-the-scenes excursions of an authentic movie and television studio,” Universal Studios Hollywood president Larry Kurzweil said in a written statement. “In celebration of Universal Studios Hollywood(‘s) 50th anniversary, the ‘Nighttime Studio Tour’ will complement the popular daytime experience as we continue to create unparalleled opportunities that showcase the various dimensions of Hollywood movie making magic for our guests.”
Hoping to copy the success of its sister theme park in Orlando, Universal Studios Hollywood also unveiled plans to expand “The Simpsons Ride” plaza to include restaurants and shops opening next year based on Springfield. The park also announced an official 2016 opening date for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Springfield and Hogwarts areas opened in Universal Studios Orlando last year and 2010, respectively, to critical acclaim and a spike in attendance.
“We do believe this is going to be a big contribution based on the significant attendance we saw in Orlando for this experience,” said Xiomara Wiley, senior vice president of marketing and sales of Universal Studios Hollywood.
Hollywood’s Springfield-themed area will be “very similar” to what Florida tourists have already experienced, and include popular “Simpsons” haunts like Krusty Burger, Luigi’s Pizza, Moe’s Tavern and Duff Brewery, Wiley said.
Specifics are under wraps for what Hollywood’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter will include and how similar it will be to the revolutionary ride design of Florida’s Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and surrounding restaurants that serve iconic Harry Potter-theme food from the books and movies.
“The brand is very important to us, Warner Bros., and the author, so we’re going to deliver something authentic and make sure it’s up their standards,” Wiley said.
The park’s five-year plan began in 2012 with the introduction of “Transformers: The Ride — 3-D,” another immersive motion simulator that employs 3-D to pit riders in the middle of a battle between the Decepticons and Autobots. It continued with the 2013 opening of the 37,000-square-foot Universal Plaza near the park’s entrance, and this weekend’s grand opening of “Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem,” yet another motion simulator based off the popular franchise’s banana-loving minions and its nearby Super Silly Fun Land kids’ play area.
