I’m happy to share that “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” will officially open on April 6 in Universal Studios Florida. You may have heard Jimmy himself announce it last night on his show, along with the fact that The Tonight Show will be taping here from April 3–6.

You’ll be able to get the ultimate “Tonight Show” experience by getting up close and personal with the show’s most hilarious moments before taking off on a wild race through the Big Apple against Jimmy Fallon himself. Your race course includes New York’s biggest landmarks, sight, sounds, and even smells (New York City pizza)! But you’re racing Jimmy Fallon, which you know means surprises!! So hold on tight for the wackiest race on earth.

The grand opening of the attraction is going to be celebrated in a big way! “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” will take the show on the road for tapings from Universal Orlando Resort from April 3–6. Stay tuned for additional details on your chance to become part of the audience. There will also be celebrity guests, which will be released over time.

And that’s not all. How does spending less time in line and more time experiencing the thrills of Universal Orlando Resort sound?

“Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon” will be the first attraction to feature a Virtual Line experience at Universal Studios Florida.

You’ll be able to access this new system through The Official Universal Orlando Resort App or at kiosks located outside the attraction entrance. This allows you to virtually wait in line while still enjoying the rest of Universal Studios. When it’s your time, just head back to the attraction, head inside, and get ready for the race of a lifetime.

Stay tuned to the blog for more sneak peeks and details as we put the pedal to the metal towards April 6.

    This sounds like fun! I hope I get a chance to feel the wind on my face and my hair blowing behind me as I race Jimmy Fallon through New York (not just another simulator that pretends to be fast). I have a quick trip planned later in April, just by coincidence. I had thought of canceling, but now I’m not. I wonder how the virtual wait will feel. April, get here fast!

  59. Alison Buchanan

    This would be perfect for many. I feel that for my husband and I who have never in 36 yrs had a vacation with just us and a child is not with us when we get to where we are going. Military families go on yr to one side of family, next yr the other side.Even though my kids now have kids..they are still meeting us on vacations. Since I have MS the heat is terrible for me it is hard to do anything fun. No ,Im not in a wheelchair, I have only a few signs. So Im hoping and wishing to not only see you but to be where you are you and it is always so funny to see everything on tv, that it has got to be even better live. maybe…..see ya on ride!!!

    Universal studios is one of my favorite places. My daughters took me about 15 yrs ago. I’m 64,don’t know how much longer I can walk. I have been hoping I could go one more time in my lifetime. One daughters is saving so we can go ,but has 3 girls with special needs. Her vehicle is big enough but not too dependable. We hope to find a way. The kids would have so much fun. I love universal studios. Will be watching in April.
    Love Dorothy,

  75. Sue Halpin

    My 10 year old grand-daughter LOVED the ride!! She was at the park with her dad and called me and she was just so excited because she didn’t think that the ride would open until April 6th! Instead she was there Saturday, April 1st and got on the ride! She was a little disappointed that Jimmy Fallon wasn’t there to ride with her!!!!!!! She couldn’t stop telling me how much fun it was and told me that it was an OK ride for me since I am 68 years “young” !!!
