Universal Orlando Denied Motion to Dismiss Lawsuit with Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon Manufacturer

Last April, the manufacturer of the Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon attraction at Universal Orlando Resort filed a lawsuit against the resort related to unpaid bills and unauthorized use of intellectual property. Now the lawsuit is being allowed to move forward, with Universal’s motion to dismiss denied.


According to the Orlando Business Journal, the lawsuit between Dynamic Motion and Universal alleges that Universal owes $5 million in unpaid invoices, plus interest. Universal allegedly wanted to make changes late in the ride’s construction process, leading to the manufacturer being replaced with another company, with Universal withholding the money as damages incurred. The lawsuit also claims that the ride is currently being operated without a license to use its intellectual property, seeking further unspecified damages.

The court disagreed with Universal’s reasons for dismissal, including the claim that the intellectual property claims were not properly pled, leading to the denial.

  1. This is pretty embarrassing for Universal. Mainly because it’s a very stupid ride and was a massive waste of money. Very much like their Fast and Furious. Your (limited) time at the park is definitely better spent not waiting in line for either of these.
