Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Jason Statham attended the red carpet premiere of Universal Studios Hollywood’s all-new thrill ride, “Fast & Furious—Supercharged”. The Hollywood stars were among the first to experience the attraction, which debuts as the grand finale to the world famous Studio Tour. The ride opened on June 24, 2015.

After experiencing “Fast & Furious—Supercharged,” Vin Diesel reacted by saying, “Wow…wow was that cool. It’s incredible, it’s really remarkable. It’s not like anything I’ve ever seen. Everyone on the tram said, ‘Can we do it again?’ It’s super cool!”

This dynamic new ride, inspired by Universal Pictures’ blockbuster film and featuring cast members from the series is a technologically advanced mega-attraction designed to catapult guests into the high-stakes underground world of street racing at perceived speeds of 120 miles per hour.

“Fast & Furious—Supercharged” tells an original Fast & Furious story. The attraction fuses sophisticated special effects with a state-of-the-art 3D audio system and 3D-HD imagery projected onto the world’s longest and most expansive 360-degree screen. Spanning nearly 400 feet in length to encircle Studio Tour guests within a newly constructed 65,000-square-foot structure on the legendary backlot, the sprawling custom-built screen employs 34, 4K projectors and a specially configured projection system to envelop guests in unprecedented realism.

Coupled with an intense blend of thrilling visceral effects, “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” takes guests on a wild ride that begins the moment they board the Studio Tour. Exclusive interstitial content filmed with cast members is featured on the tram monitors, highlighting interactions as the cast engages guests en route to the climactic ride. Along the tram route and featured at the ride, sightings of numerous prop cars from the Fast & Furious series, including Dom’s iconic Dodge Charger, enhance the story.
