Just today, Universal Orlando revealed all-new information about its groundbreaking Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon attraction, which is scheduled to open this coming spring. The attraction will be located in the Universal Studios Florida theme park, directly next to the Music Plaza.
The experience begins in the Studio 6B Club, where you can watch a live performance from the Ragtime Gals barbershop quartet, check out some of The Tonight Show’s classic bits, or meet Hashtag the Panda. You can even play host at an Interactive Desk, where you’ll have the ability to send Jimmy Fallon’s famous Thank You letters to your friends and family. In Studio 6B, you can also prep for your race with a Jimmy Drive video game and watch your favorite clips from The Tonight Show.
After a briefing in the Studio 6B lobby, you’ll board the world’s first-ever flying theater, which reportedly seats up to 72 guests, for a race alongside Jimmy Fallon through the city that never sleeps, New York City.
From 30 Rock, you’ll pass through iconic landmarks, both from the streets and skies. Along the race, you can spot cameos from Higgins and familiar characters like Sara from “Ew” and Jimmy Fallon in “Tight Pants.” Additionally, the attraction will feature an original score from The Roots.
Step into the History
As you step foot into the renowned NBC Studios, you’ll get a front-row seat to witness the most significant moments in the company’s history, as you travel through the 62-year evolution of The Tonight Show.
Making your way through The Tonight Show lobby, you’ll also get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see actual set pieces from one of the longest-running shows in television history. You’ll see suits of past hosts, iconic props, and video cameras used to record the show, all surrounding a display honoring the current host.
