The roller coaster will be situated on the Upper Lot of Universal Studios Hollywood, offering travelers a chance to queue up in a thematic garage-style structure before embarking on their high-speed adventure. Modeled after iconic cars from the Fast & Furious franchise, the ride vehicles will traverse an aerial track that winds its way over various parts of the park.

"Fast & Furious: Hollywood Drift" is the latest in a series of groundbreaking attractions at Universal Studios Hollywood, joining the ranks of beloved experiences such as SUPER NINTENDO WORLD™ and "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™." With its blend of thrilling action and immersive storytelling, the ride is poised to become a must-visit destination for fans of the Fast & Furious saga and thrill-seekers alike.
