Years ago, when Jimmy Fallon was still “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”, he pitched his idea for a ride to Universal but they kindly declined. After graduating to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”, Universal Studios in Orlando called him back because they wanted to make the ride he pitched years before. Then, Fallon spent the next three and a half years working with two writers to perfectly represent New York in the ride since he was born and raised there. “I wanted it to be a love letter to New York so people could see how great the city is.” The ride certainly succeeds in doing so by taking passengers through New York while racing against the late night host himself.
