Groups better buckle up as Universal Orlando Resort revs up its engines in the new year with all-new experiences and openings—mainly the launch of its Fast & Furious attraction and Aventura Hotel.
Universal Orlando Resort will help the Fast & Furious franchise take it to the next level with the debut of Fast & Furious – Supercharged this spring. Filled with 15 authentic cars and props from the movies, the attraction will make attendees feel as if they are speeding with their favorite characters from the movies. The scenery will also create an ideal built-in backdrop for themed events.
Later in August, Universal Orlando Resort plans to open its sixth hotel: the 600-room Aventura Hotel. Its highlight for groups? A rooftop bar located on the 17th floor for attendees to meet amidst views of the resort’s iconic Hogwarts Castle, Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster and Volcano Bay. The guest rooms feature a sleek look, with light wood and white furniture pieces, accented by splashes of purple and burnt orange that add a sense of vibrancy.
Lastly, the resort will again bring the holiday spirit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with enhanced festive décor, special events and a projection show in the attraction’s Hogsmeade.
These latest debuts join last year’s opening of Volcano Bay, the resort’s third theme park. The water park combines storytelling and immersive experiences, including 18 attractions such as the 200-foot Krakatau volcano that features body slides that drop from the top. New interactive “Meeting Enhancements” also brought some of the best Universal characters to life at meetings in 2017 and will continue to do so moving into 2018.
