Universal Studios Update: A General Look Around the Park

Great update from our friends at Orlando Theme Park News on what’s going on over at Universal Orlando…

The busy summer season officially started just a few weeks ago, but many more Guests are expected to arrive to the Central Florida area in the next few hours.
While it is undoubtedly expected to see longer wait times around the parks, this has not stopped Universal Studios Florida from continuing to work on their new additions. Indeed, the facade of the new ride hosted by Jimmy Fallon continues to take shape, while work on the brand-new Fast & Furious attraction proceeds.

First of all, take a look at the facade of Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon:

A new staircase has been installed behind the facade:

The rest of the facade looks mostly the same:

Minor work is being done near the pizzeria in the New York section of the park:

New billboards were recently installed around the area:

The new Fast & Furious ride is now expected to open in 2018. It was originally going to open in 2017:

The rest of the walls now also have the updated opening year:
