Disaster Closing in a Fast & Furious Way
Aug 24, 2015

On September 8th, 2015, it will be your last chance to be a part of a movie on Disaster because The Rock and the millions (and millions) of riders that have been on whatever incarnation of the ride in the San Francisco area. However, that does not mean that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has layed his last smack down in that area.

According to multiple rumors, Disaster will be closing to make way for a brand new ride based on “The Fast & The Furious” movie franchise. The ride will be scheduled to open sometime in 2017. The news of the “Fast” franchise is not a shock to most theme park fanatic as it was only a matter of time before Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel), Hobbs (The Rock) and the rest of the crew came in based off speculation after the addition to the Universal Hollywood tram tour.

The ride will let a park visitor to see Dom and his crew, check out all the cool cars from the movies and then board a “special ride vehicles and take off on an adrenaline pumping ride through the underground racing world.” Based off that description, I am thinking either an awesome coaster similar to Revenge of the Mummy or Universal ups their simulator game as they have done time and time again.

However, Disaster isn’t the only thing on the chopping block because of the Fast & Furious ride. Rumors are pointing to Beetlejuice’s Graveyard Revue to go until the end of the year before playing their last show. This is most likely due to Halloween Horror Nights using the Beetlejuice stage area for one of it’s two shows this year. No official word has come from Universal Orlando Resort, but it should be coming very soon.

Stay tuned for more updates on this development.
