Florida's world-famous theme park Universal Studios Florida has announced the creation of a brand new ride called "Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon" that will be opening in 2017.

Named after TV's anchorman Jimmy Fallon from The Tonight Show Starring, the ride will take visitors for a fun-filled spin through Universal's well-known Studio 6B where they will experience a special taping in which the TV star will challenge the audience to "the ultimate race through the greatest city on earth".

The ride will feature a thrill trip from street level to rooftop heights through the heart of New York City, from subway tunnels to landmark skyscrapers, and a host of surprises spawned directly from Jimmy Fallon's mind.

As a consequence, the thrill ride Twister…Ride It Out has closed on November 2, 2015 until the end of construction of the new "Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon" attraction.
