Fast & Furious Supercharged Ride

I always thought it was very strange that Universal Studios theme parks don’t feature a Fast and the Furious ride. The films have earned almost $2.4 billion worldwide — Fast and the Furious is the biggest franchise in Universal Studios’ history, yet they can’t even build a ride in the domestic theme parks? Yes, they’ve had that lame stop on the studio tram tour that features a bunch of cars spinning on turntables, a cross promotion for their earlier film The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. But the tram stop is one of the stupidest parts of the tram tour, and by the way, Tokyo Drift is the lowest earning movie of the franchise — seems like an odd choice.

Finally, Universal Studios Hollywood has announced a new Fast and the Furious ride which will be called Fast & Furious Supercharged (we mentioned the trademark in an earlier Theme Park Bits).  More details on the Fast & Furious Supercharged ride revealed after the jump.
