Vin Diesel dedicates new Fast & Furious ride to Paul
Hollywood star Vin Diesel has dedicated new Fast & Furious Universal Studios Ride Supercharged to late actor Paul Walker.
The 47-year-old star traded the franchise's signature muscle cars for a new kind of ride, which opened on June 24, said The Hollywood Reporter.
"I'm more excited than anybody to get on that tram, and I want to be in the front seat and feel it out and get that adrenaline pumping," said Diesel.
Supercharged is a 3-D motion addition to the park's classic studio tour tram ride.
It is an <g data-gr-id="17">explosion-packed</g> car chase using hydraulics and HD images projected on a massive 360-degree screen. Riders are blasted with wind, fog and mist as they attempt a high-speed escape through crashing cars and gunfire.
"I know when we were making it, it felt like we were creating something that I had never experienced. We employed all kinds of incredible technology," said Diesel before opening the ride at the ceremony. Diesel previously announced that the 8th installment will be released on April 14, 2017.
