A limited number of guests will get to preview the ride in preparation for the April 6th opening. Universal is calling the soft opening a “technical rehearsal.” The ride will open on a limited, unscheduled basis and some of the elements may not be operational during the pre-opening test.
Universal has transformed the old Twister show building into a condensed version of NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Plaza headquarters in New York, where Fallon’s The Tonight Show is taped. Fans will get a chance to experience the 72-seat flying theater, in which they’ll race through the city with Fallon, who’ll be piloting his own “Tonight Rider” quadcopter on the screen ahead.
The ride also will feature Universal’s new Virtual Line system, where guests can reserve return times via the resort’s official app or kiosks in front of the attraction.
