Universal Orlando is giving us a first look inside its next big attraction, Fast & Furious – Supercharged.

  • Universal released Behind the Scenes video of new ride
  • Fast & Furious – Supercharged opens next spring
  • Ride to feature original story, additional characters

The ride is expected to open next spring. The movie series is one of the highest-grossing film franchises of all time.

Riders will encounter old and new characters. Tej (Chris "Ludacris" Bridges) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) will join the cast for the attraction, which includes Dom (Vin Diesel), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and criminal mastermind Owen Shaw (Luke Evans).

The ride features a new story that expands on the "Fast" franchise. The queue takes guests through the underground headquarters of the "Fast family," when you get an urgent message from Dom that Owen Shaw is headed your way, which leads to a high-speed chase. 

The ride also features Universal's virtual line system, which is already in use at "Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon" and at the Volcano Bay water park.

Each vehicle, including Dom's Dodge Charger and Letty’s Turbo Truck, was crafted by Dennis McCarthy, the man behind the cars for the "Fast & Furious" films.

Universal is promising to release more "Fast & Furious" details before the opening next spring.
