Ask yourself a few questions:
With the eighth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, "The Fate of the Furious," coming out in April, there's never been a better time to find out what heart-pounding speed feels like in person. Just hop aboard the Studio Tour at Universal Studios Hollywood. The tour ends with an immersive 3D experience starring Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and others from the hit film franchise. A nearly 400-foot-long screen surrounds visitors as they reach what feels like 120 mph, roaring down a freeway in Los Angeles with heroes and villains alike in hot pursuit.
That’s because Owen Shaw, the ruthless criminal mastermind last seen in “Fast & Furious 6,” wants to get his hands on a crucial federal witness—one who just happens to riding aboard your tram. When a plan to lie low among the underground street racing scene falls through, only pure speed can save the Studio Tour.
High-speed cars are always fun, but all that acceleration can leave a person hungry. Luckily, just up the hill from the Studio Tour is a little town you may have heard of: Springfield, U.S.A. Universal Studios has built a faithful recreation of the hometown of America’s longest-running animated family, the Simpsons.
From fixtures like Krusty Burger and Moe’s Tavern to lesser-known landmarks such as Stu’s Disco and the office of Dr. Nick Riviera, every detail has been lovingly recreated all the way down to which movies are on the marquee at the Aztec Theater. That attention to detail continues on the culinary front, where members can really take a bite out of the show’s rich history.
