Universal Orlando’s Fast & Furious-Supercharged ride is now open

Universal Orlando’s Fast & Furious-Supercharged ride is now open

Fasten your seatbelts, Orlando. You’re in for one heck of a ride! Universal Orlando Resorts highly anticipated new attraction, Fast & Furious-Supercharged, is officially open.  (video) The new ride takes you inside one of the most successful franchises in movie history right along with the F & F crew--including Dom, Mia, Letty, Hobbs, Roman, Tej. There are also several  tributes to the late actor Paul Walker who played Brian O’ Conner in the series. Walker died in a car crash in 2013. According to a press release from Universal Orlando Resort, during the experience, guests will:  join up with the Fast crew as they feel what it’s like to step into their favorite Fast & Furious film;  immerse themselves in an authentic recreation of the Fast & Furious crew’s warehouse headquarters – filled with actual props, iconic scenes, authentic details and supercharged vehicles from the films;  ride with the family and crew as the films’ soundtracks pump, vehicles flip, rockets fire – and the action builds;  and check out more than a dozen of the supercharged cars from the films – including some of the ones driven by their favorite characters. The ride also features the new Virtual Line system  where guests can select a time to ride through the Universal Orlando mobile app or at the kiosks at the attraction. Guests can then go enjoy other experiences around the park and come back to the F & F ride at their designated time.  But what would Fast & Furious be without the stars of the film giving it the green light? On May 2, Universal will host a special evening event featuring some of the franchise’s stars. The event will be streamed live.

UCF unveils ‘National Champions’ sign at Spectrum Stadium, gives players rings

UCF is all in when it comes to claiming that National Championship title.  Just before kickoff at Saturday’s spring game, a black tarp was dropped to unveil a ‘2017 National Champions’ sign, permanently cemented onto Spectrum Stadium.  (tweet) After the game, the players had another surprise waiting for them:  diamond-encrusted national championship rings. “That is beautiful,” says player Nate Evans after picking up his ring. “This is motivation right here. We gotta get another one of these.” (tweet) (tweet) The Knights beat Auburn in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl earlier this year, 34-27, making them the only team to finish the season undefeated. But they’ve received backlash for claiming the title of National Champs. Alabama beat Georgia 26-23 in the College Football Playoff National Championship a week after UCF’s win over Auburn, taking home the true title and trophy.  “Alabama is the national champion. They played in that game called the National Championship you know,” tweeted Andy King. Zach Bitner tweets, “Lol cmon this is embarrassing.” Last week, UCF took some heat after unveiling a campus police car wrapped in the National Champions title.   In response, UCF simply said, “Haters gonna hate.” (tweet)
