New Fast & Furious Roller Coaster Heading To Universal Studios Hollywood In 2026

Universal Studios Hollywood is about to get a little more furious as it announced the park’s first-ever, high-speed outdoor roller coaster, Fast & Furious: Hollywood Drift. The ride will join the theme park in the summer of 2026.

The state-of-the-art ride system is designed to take guests to the high-speed Fast & Furious universe with groundbreaking full 360-degree rotation of the individual ride vehicles as they speed down an elaborate track that creates the sensation of drifting cars with Dom and the family.

“As a premier entertainment theme park destination with a rich history in immersing guests in incredible rides based on today’s most inspiring movie, television, and gaming properties, we are excited to introduce our very first, high-speed outdoor roller coaster,” said Scott Strobl, Universal Studios Hollywood executive vice president and general manager in a statement.

“As Universal Studios Hollywood continues to evolve, the arrival of Fast & Furious: Hollywood Drift will be a powerful game-changer that will infuse a new level of thrill into our already dynamic theme park,” he continued. “We look forward to welcoming guests when it races onto the scene in 2026.”

The Fast & Furious franchise arrived in the parks as Fast & Furious: Supercharged, which hit Universal Hollywood in 2015, and Orlando three years later. The Orlando version is consistently ranked as one of the worst rides in the park. Even Thierry Coup, Universal’s creative senior vice president and CCO, admitted that the Florida attraction’s approval was the biggest mistake of his career.

Hollywood Drift joins other big-name Universal rides like Jurassic World, The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, The Simpsons Ride, Transformers 3-D, and Revenge of the Mummy.
