ORLANDO, Fla – Universal Orlando released a new look at an attraction that will be very popular for those who choose to live their lives "a quarter mile at a time."

"Fast & Furious - Supercharged" is set to make its way to Universal Studios Orlando in spring 2018. 

According to Universal officials, the ride will give guests "the opportunity to actually live the excitement they've seen on the big screen in a high-octane ride experience where they will become part of the Fast family."

The attraction will feature an original high-speed chase adventure, complete with hit songs from the film's soundtracks and a queue for the ride designed with familiar locations like the Family Room and Tej's high-tech War Room.

Guests will also have the opportunity to encounter their favorite characters from the Fast and Furious Film Series including  Dom (Vin Diesel), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Roman (Tyrese Gibson),  Tej (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) and Mia (Jordana Brewster).

Fifteen authentic "Fast & Furious" cars will also be available to take pictures with, including many from the films, like Dom's iconic Dodge Charger parked outside to mark the ride's entrance and Letty's Turbo Truck. Each vehicle will be crafted by Dennis McCarthy, the man behind the cars for the "Fast & Furious" films.

"Fast & Furious - Supercharged" will be the latest attraction to feature Universal's new virtual line system, which allows guests to select a time to ride via their mobile app or at kiosks located at the entrance to the attraction. While you wait for your turn, you can enjoy other Universal experiences.
