Twister is out and Jimmy Fallon is moving in. The new attraction at Universal Studios Orlando, which will be called “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon”, is set to open in 2017.

Earlier this week, on The Tonight Show, Jimmy made the announcement to his audience and stated that the future attraction will have rides much like those within the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal parks.

“It’s like that except instead of Harry Potter, it’s me,” Fallon said.  “And instead of Hogwarts, it’s New York City.”

According to the press release on Wednesday, sent out by Universal Orlando, “”Guests will enjoy the full ‘Tonight Show’ experience as they’re transported to Studio 6B to race against Jimmy in a crazy adventure that only he could imagine”.

Other sources have hinted that the New York experience will include many New York City landmarks, including skyscrapers and the subway tunnels. Fallon and his hilarious team of writers are rumored to be working in conjunction with Universal Creative to give the attraction that “Fallon Feel”, which will definitely be the key to making this ride worth-while.
