Guide to Fast & Furious — Supercharged at Universal Studios Florida

May 19, 2023
A group of people walk toward a brown, brick building with white, seemingly painted-on text reading "Fast & Furious Supercharged." The building has several half-circle, tile, window-like features. In front of the building are various gates, and signs indicating the current time and current wait time. Closest to the camera is a woman in a flannel-like patterned top and dark bottoms, holding hands with a man in a gray-and-black shirt that reads "street racing" in a blocky font and "garage service" in a curly font, along with other, harder-to-read text. Closer to the building, a younger woman with glasses, a blue shirt, jeans, and black sneakers, looks back toward a group of three women, all facing aware from the camera. From left to right: a woman in what looks like a purple sweatshirt and jeans, a woman in a teal tank top and black shorts, and a woman in a pink-white-and-turquoise flannel, and dark pants. There is what seems to be the top and front of a car to the woman closest to the camera's left. The floor is concrete, with some being seemingly made of a cobblestone. Right in front of the building is a lighter sidewalk, with a red curb.

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. 

The Story

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.

The Queue

A man with a mini microphone on his face, wearing a black jacket over a patterned shirt, khaki shorts, and black socks and shoes, waves to the camera with his right hand while sitting in a black, wheeled, swivel chair and holding a tablet in his left hand. There is an empty chair to his left, facing a desk with three monitors and a holder full of file folders. Above the desk are two more computer monitors, as well as three larger television screens. All the monitors and screens display security views, sound waves, or other technical displays. There is a blue, translucent dry-erase board with text and diagrams in the left corner, as well as a table made of the same material down the bottom border. Various black cases are scattered across the scene. There is a large, circular light on the ceiling. The walls are made of brick, and a blue light covers the entire room, washing the walls (and scene) in blue.

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.

A man in a gray button-up shirt and vertically striped bottoms, and a woman in a red-and-white horizontally striped shirt and black cut-off shorts, both wearing blue lanyards with their annual passes, look at a black car. The man gestures to it with his right hand, while the woman smiles. Behind them is the entrance to Fast & Furious — Supercharged, a brick building. A team member in a blue button-up shirt with a name tag on it stands at a glass door, which has a yellow circular sign with blue text "express" and blue graffiti-like text text to it reading "& virtual line." A woman in a pink-and-white long-sleeved outfit walks toward the building.

The Ride

A view of the Fast & Furious — Supercharged Party Bus vehicle. It is illuminated with a blue light on the inside. There are five visible benches inside of the bus, as well as a driver at the wheel in a glassed-off front compartment. The bus is black, with a design on the front door in various shades of gray. The loading platform is cut off, but visible in part on the bottom border. There is a black-and-yellow diagonally striped line separating the platform from the bus itself. There is yellow tape on the concrete, separating it into rows matching the party bus, so that when the bus fully drives in, the lines will line up with each bench. Behind the bus, and visible out the other side's windows, is a brick wall with various signage, and cardboard boxes and blue barrels sitting in front of it. Above the brick wall, on the top half of the back wall, is a large, seemingly tiled wall pattern.

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.

Fast Facts

The front of the Fast & Furious — Supercharged Party Bus. The headlights are on. The bus itself is light gray, with two black, vertical stripes down the center, cut off by the glass windshield. There is no one visible in the driver's seat. The bus is inside of a garage, lit up by ceiling lights. There are shelves and stacks of tires to the bus' left, and cases to its right. Both sections are roped off. The ceiling and floor are both seemingly made of concrete, with the left wall being partially painted yellow.
  • 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.

Custom Gear  

The inside of the Custom Gear shop. There are shelves of various T-shirts, hats, toys, sunglasses, and other merchandise, all themed to Fast & Furious, or cars in general. Some of the shelves have metal borders. On top of one of the shelves, right behind a silver-and-white counter with a black monitor and payment set up, sit two black helmets. In front of a white wall near the center, next to a display of sunglasses, is a mannequin, wearing a black baseball cap, a black jacket, white pants, and brown boots. There are two forward-facing T-shirts, both kids sized, one red with two white stripes on the sleeves, that says in black "put the pedal to the metal," with a car between the words "pedal" and "to," and another that has a tire in the center with wo red curves, one on each side, that reads "my garage" on top of it and "my rules" under it. There is a door into what seems to be another room, with a sign hanging from the top of the doorway reading "exit only" in white on a red strip, and "do not enter" in red, on the otherwise white sign. Racks with car parts, along with posters of cars, hang from the walls. The floor is brown, and the ceiling is black. Black lightbulb holders, with lit up lights, hang at the top of the walls.

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.

Family Forever

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 see!), you’ll leave this attraction feeling like part of the family.

    Honestly, it was the most disappointing attraction of the day, an endless and boring line, the ride a bit forced, the experience in the immersion very regular, compared to other attractions, maybe I expected too much.

    Hi, is this a roller coaster or a sensor motion ride, please?

    • Reply Digital Guest Communications July 6, 2023 at 2:29 pm

      Hi Sophie, this attraction is a full-throttle, high-octane ride located in the San Francisco area of Universal Studios Florida. While this is not a rollercoaster, is does simulate a high-speed car chase featuring classic characters from the Fast & Furious franchise, putting Guests in the middle of the action, and making them feel like they’re part of the “Fast Family.” This attraction uses both fog and lighting effects.
