Plot

Dominic Toretto, Roman Pearce and Letty Ortiz team up with Luke Hobbs to save a member of their team from an "international crime cartel", led by mercenary Owen Shaw.[2]

Ride

During the tram tour, guests encounter a 1970 Dodge Charger in the middle of Wysteria Lane. The tram tourist calls security. While the trams are entering the hideout, Hobbs, Roman, and Letty ruin Novak’s call to the guests and inform them of the mission and to keep cell phones off and silenced. Inside the hideout, a party is taking place and everyone is forced out by Agent Novak and his team. Roman arrives late with a group of women, only to encounter Novak himself. The agent pulls out a gun and demands Pearce to the ground. Hobbs, Letty, and Dominic join Roman for support. Agent Novak backs away and the trams proceed. Guests are then asked to put on their 3D glasses.

In a dark parking lot, a group of mercenaries demands the guests to speak up on the witness and a chase ensues. As the tram travels throughout the city, Hobbs, Dominic, Letty, and Pearce provide support for the guests while they fend off the enemies. The trams manage to take cover in a dark room successfully. The team thanks guests on a mission completed before proceeding to end the Studio Tour.

History

Fast & Furious: Supercharged was announced in March 2015 by Universal Studios Hollywood.[2] An exclusive ninety minute behind the scenes featurette was promoted on NBC during a special telecast of 2011 Fast & Furious film, Fast Five, March 21, 2015. Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Dwayne Johnson and Luke Evans were all confirmed to make appearances in the studio attraction theme.[2] The attraction sits in the area formerly occupied by the Glacier Avalanche, which had occupied the site from 1975 to September 3, 2013. It was demolished to allow construction of Supercharged to proceed.[4] [5]

The second iteration of the ride opened at Universal Studios Orlando 2018.[6]
