Yesterday (June 23rd) was a big day for Universal Studios Hollywood as it was the official grand opening of Fast and Furious Supercharged Ride. We were invited to join in on their grand opening festivities at the Courthouse Square on the lower lot of Universal Studios Hollywood.
The unique thing about this grand opening was that the festivities took place more than a half a mile away from the actual Fast & Furious attraction. It may be because of the confined space of that Fast and Furious area, so they needed some bigger space to host the event.
After parking the car and checking in, we jumped on the tram which took us down to the Metro sets
After hopping of the tram, we were greeted with a Fast and Furious Banner before entering Courthouse Square
Wow. Look at that beautiful 1970 Dodge Charger R/T
Some fast cars from the movie being displayed.
The Red Carpet:
Looks like something big is about to happen.
This big poster with Vin Diesel holding onto the helicopter is also on the front of the new Unviersal park map
At the event, we were able to see and captured some photos of Vin Diesel, Jason Statman, and Tyrese Gibson as they were walking to the main staging area as the event is about to get under way
Oh yea. The coolest thing about the event taken place in Courthouse Square was the ability to sit, eat, and relax on the famous Courthouse building stairway that was famously seen in Back to the Future
Couple of speeches were given about the New Fast & Furious Supercharged ride
Fast and Furious Opening Ceremony ended with an spectacular Action-packed Finale
Once the event was over we hopped back onto the tram to be taken straight to the main attraction of them all, Fast and Furious Supercharged show building the Grand Finale of the Studios Tour
Overall, we had a great time on this immersive Fast and Furious Supercharged ride. We highly recommend sitting in car 3 on the Studios Tram and in the middle seats to truly experience and be immersed attraction.
Be sure to visit Universal Studios Hollywood soon to experience this in-person as photos and videos don’t do it justice online.
