Actors Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Jason Statham walked the red carpet before joining Universal executives on stage for the official dedication of the new 4D, motion-base experience that serves as the finale for the Studio Tour.
During Universal's online broadcast of the red carpet arrivals, Rodriguez appeared to spill the beans about a Fast & Furious attraction coming to Universal Orlando in the not-too-distant future — which should further fuel burning rumors that a version of "Supercharged" will replace the Disaster! ride in Universal Studios Florida.
Back in Hollywood, no theme park event would be complete without something going terribly wrong, in this case being an "FBI raid" that halted the ceremony and led to a high speed car chase that ended with a vehicle crashing through the "Fast & Furious: Supercharged" billboard that stood over the event.
Before the mayhem, Vin Diesel thanked Universal for its support for the franchise and then dedicated the ride to "Pablo" — co-star Paul Walker, who was killed in an unrelated car crash while production for Furious 7 was underway in 2013.
Fast & Furious: Supercharged opens officially to the public on Thursday.

Even though T2 is a good show, knowing Universal, they've probably talked about finding a replacement. I've haven't heard anything about what that replacement might be or when it will happen. I'm gonna bet my money that they're waiting to see how the new Terminator movie performs before making any final decisions on the show's fate. If the film is really successful, then the Terminator franchise will see a resurgence in popularity and as such there would be no point in shutting the attraction down, probably just update it. If it doesn't..."Hasta la Vista, Baby."
