The coaster will officially be called Fast & Furious Hollywood Drift. It is scheduled to open in 2026. Universal Studios Hollywood announced the news via their social media channels, including X. The coaster is set to include “groundbreaking technology [and] breathtaking immersion.” Earlier this month, we caught up on the construction progress of the attraction. In the announcement, Universal shared the following:

Prepare for high-speed thrills! Fast & Furious: Hollywood Drift arrives at Universal Studios Hollywood in 2026. From groundbreaking technology to breathtaking immersion, this is a roller coaster like no other.

The attraction is themed to the “Fast & Furious” film saga, and will feature a state-of-the-art ride system that allows for 360-degree rotation for each individual ride vehicle. The ride experience is meant to mimic the feeling of drifting cars as riders wind through parts of the park. It will be Universal Studios Hollywood’s first high-speed outdoor roller coaster. The queue, located on the Upper Lot of Universal Studios Hollywood, will be designed to look like a large brick garage. And fans of the “Fast” franchise will recognize the ride vehicles — they’ll be modeled after actual cars featured in the films.
