Universal Studios Hollywood is opening a brand new ride sure to be a hit with cat and dog lovers alike!
The Los Angeles theme park has unveiled plans for new attraction ‘The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash’, themed around its hit film which reveals just what your pets do when you’re not at home.
The park promises that it will be a ‘fully immersive experience’ where guests will take on the roles of stray puppies, as they join the likes of Max, Snowball, Gidget, Chloe and Duke on an epic adventure to find their ‘forever homes’.
The ride itself will be set in New York City, and will see riders zipping along a track aboard little vehicles through the Big Apple, towards an important Pet Adoption event.
Of course it’s not all smooth sailing – expect plenty of surprises and challenges as you make your way through the attraction.
The news comes ahead of the release of The Secret Life of Pets 2 this summer, although the new ride won’t open to the public until 2020. (Universal Studios has yet to confirm the exact dates).
Karen Irwin, President and COO, Universal Studios Hollywood, said: “We are thrilled to be able to bring another exciting Illumination movie-based ride to our guests.
“‘The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!’ will capture the essence of the popular film and invite our guests to live vicariously through some of their favourite characters as they embark on a one-of-a-kind experience only available at Universal Studios Hollywood.”
It’s not the only new exciting addition coming to the theme park, although it definitely is the more gentler of the two.
That’s because Universal Studios Hollywood is soon set to welcome brand new immersive attraction Jurassic World – The Ride , expected to be unveiled in summer 2019.
Instead of fluffy cats and dogs, here it will be predators from Velociraptors to Dilophosaurus that guests will need to look out for (although there are some docile creatures such as the Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus around too).
Oh, and the only exit is a treacherous waterfall…
