Today marked the official opening of Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, a new 3-D “ride” at Universal Orlando in which guests soar above Manhattan trying to outrace the Tonight Show host. LINK

Fallon himself kicked off the celebration with a ticker tape parade. “I’m happy. I’m grateful. I’m excited. This whole experience has been a real emotional rollercoaster simulator,” he said. 

The ride also marks the debut of the Virtual Line experience, which assigns guests a set time to show up so they do not have to wait on line.

Travel agents can get information and make bookings at www.UniversalTravelAgents.com, and sign up for the recently launched Travel Professionals Facebook group to receive news and updates.
