See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

The highly popular “The Fast & The Furious” franchise, of which there are six films and countless video games starring Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker, has been entertaining boys who love fast cars for years. Now, your son’s need for speed will soon be satiated with the opening of Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Fast & Furious – Supercharged” ride.

The new ride, scheduled to open in 2015, will “move” riders faster than 100 miles per hour through the streets aboard a back-lot tram in a motion-simulated ride. The new ride is just one of Universal Studios’ updates to be complete by 2016, joining the new “Transformers: The Ride 3-D” and “Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem.”
