Ride or die? That is the question. Fast & Furious – Supercharged is one of my favorite attractions at Universal Studios Florida. And even though I spent a year working at the attraction, I swear I’m not biased.
Fast & Furious — Supercharged is a high-octane journey into the underground racing world. Whether you’re a fan of the franchise, a car enthusiast, or you just like to party, there’s a little bit of something for everyone.
Picture this: it’s race day and Dom Toretto is getting geared up to win his next round (I don’t know why anybody challenges him…). After all, when he races, he wins, and when he wins, we party! Dom and the crew are known for throwing the best after-parties at Sullivan’s Garage and you just so happen to receive an exclusive invite — and because you’re basically V.I.P., you’re going to be riding there in style.
You start out by walking into an unassuming warehouse, but the party starts as soon as you enter Dom’s garage. You’re greeted with several of the crew’s best cars, tools, and of course the music (which is straight out of the “Fast & Furious” film soundtracks). Next, you’ll meet Pat and Jamie, who are part of Tej’s crew. Pat gets us hyped up and Tej calls to let us know that our party buses are ready. But as soon as we run into Jamie, Dom and Hobbs call to tell us that Owen Shaw is hot on our trail and we need to be careful.
The party will go on, even with bad guys after us. So, get ready to roll out in custom party buses — courtesy of Tej. With a high-value witness on board, what could really go wrong? Well, I’m glad you asked. As expected, Owen Shaw shows up uninvited to crash the festivities. But lucky for us, the whole family is out to protect us. Letty and Roman will use their Turbo Tow Trucks to really get things moving, and we just might have to jump a bridge that’s under construction. Ride or die, remember? Prepare to race through the streets while dodging Shaw, attack drones, and of course, the never-ending traffic on the San Francisco freeway.

- The cars you see in the queue were used in the franchise.
- There are tons of nods in the building to the former Disaster! and Beetlejuice’s Graveyard Revue attractions.
- Fast & Furious — Supercharged at Universal Orlando Resort is the first we see of Mia and Tej. The Universal Studios Hollywood version of this ride in the Studio Tour only has Dom, Letty, Hobbs, and Roman.
- The attraction is largely based around “Fast & Furious 6”, where Owen Shaw is the main antagonist.
- Two vehicles were custom built just for this attraction: Letty’s Turbo Truck and the Vision Beats video truck.
Once you make it back safely to the loading docks and Tej gives you permission to “act a fool,” it’s time to go. But the party doesn’t have to end there — the Custom Gear shop has everything that you need to take it home with you. There’s Fast & Furious merch, miniature car models, and you can even get your own…well, custom gear! There are shirts, shoes, hats, and more that you can have custom spray-painted.
I love visiting Fast & Furious — Supercharged. From the minute you enter, it’s a non-stop rush of adrenaline, action, and partying. From the queue, to the pre-shows, to the motion of the custom party buses, every detail makes you feel like you walked into the movies. If you are a “Fast & Furious” fan, you’ll understand more of the deep references. But even if you’ve never seen any of the films (which you totally should!), you’ll leave this attraction feeling like part of the family.
