Jimmy Fallon Ride at Universal Orlando
Universal Orlando announced recent plans to add an intriguing new attraction: Race Through New York Starring the Jimmy Fallon. The NBC Universal ride is scheduled to open mid year in 2017. The New Universal Orlando Jimmy Fallon ride replaces the “Twister.. Ride It Out” attraction.
Jimmy Gets His Fall On
Jimmy Fallon has not been without controversy lately. In late June, Mr. Fallon “gave the finger” apparently to his living room rug, and ended up in the ICU room after 6 hours of surgery. He followed that up in August with chipping his tooth based on reports from the Hollywood media outlets. Not to be outdone, Mr. Fallon fell on a Jaegermeister bottle and injured his other hand after a Harvard University Lampoon Award event in October.
The latest more public drama reportedly involved alcohol which apparently has some NBC executives a little at ease. The entertainment tabloids have been abuzz with the gossip of the latest incident and subsequent ripples at the NBC Universal offices in New York.
NBC Raises Its Stakes in Jimmy Fallon
This recent news of a Universal Jimmy Fallon ride is really more of an effort to expose the Late Night host to a greater cross section of the general public. Insider reports have Mr. Fallon recently signing a 6 year multi-million dollar agreement reportedly keeping the late night host with NBC until the year 2021.
Jimmy Fallon has proven to be a very adept comedian and entertainer with the general public. Ratings have propelled the late night show to the top and kept it there in a very competitive market.
So will the Universal Jimmy Fallon ride have staying power?
As indicated earlier, the Jimmy Fallon ride will not be completed until 2017. Mr. Fallon would be roughly in his 2nd year of a 6 year employment agreement. Mr. Fallon has immense talent, but it’s difficult to predict according to industry insiders.
The NBC Universal creative team has indicated that collaboration has begun on the ride with writers and staff to develop a compelling virtual adventure through New York City. With Mr. Fallon’s talent and entertainment genius, one shouldn’t discount his abilities to potentially design a compelling attraction for the general public to enjoy.
It would be a shame for the recent unpredictable personal mishaps of Mr. Fallon to effect the great creative impact this new venue might have on the public. We hope you will stay tuned to the very latest news on the Jimmy Fallon ride coming to Universal Orlando.
