Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon

                  “Take the Show for a Ride”

                  Dates: 6 April 2017 – present

                  This attraction replaced Twister…Ride It Out which closed on November 2nd 2015. Construction on the external part of the attraction (based on the facade of 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York) began in March 2016. 

                  Rather than small groups of 6 or 8 that usually sit in a ride vehicle, this attraction uses a 76-seat ‘flying theater’.
