Universal Offers Another Preview of 'Fast & Furious - Supercharged'

April 28, 2015, 4:15 PM · Universal Studios Hollywood today released another "behind the scenes" promotional video for its upcoming "Fast & Furious - Supercharged" encounter, debuting June 25 on the Studio Tour.

From the park's press release:

This dynamic hydraulic motion-based thrill ride will tell an original Fast & Furious story, fusing sophisticated hyper-realistic special effects with a state-of-the-art 3D audio system and 3D-HD imagery projected onto the world’s longest and most expansive 360-degree screen. Spanning nearly 400 feet in length to encircle Studio Tour guests within a newly constructed 65,000-square-foot structure on the legendary backlot, the sprawling custom-built screen will employ 34, 4K projectors and a sophisticated projection configuration system to envelop guests in unprecedented realism.

Coupled with an intense blend of visceral effects, “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” will take guests on a wild ride that begins the moment they board the Studio Tour. Exclusive interstitial content—that was filmed with the cast members—will be featured on the tram monitors, highlighting interactions as they engage guests en route to the ride’s climatic scenes. Along the tram route sightings of numerous prop cars from the Fast & Furious series, including Dom’s Dodge Charger, will enhance the story.

This will improve the tram ride. Its nothing like anything we've seen before. Universal continues to push the envelop on 3D attractions. For Disney to match, it will have to abandon the bringing back of Muppets 3D (seriously).

They don't have that pass on the website anymore and none of the passes offered include the free parking option. Has the Premium Star Pass (and it's free parking option) been phased out?
