To enter the queue, riders will either 'check-in' on the Official Universal Orlando Resort App or grab a colored card at the kiosks located in the attraction. The card's color corresponds to the time each group will be allowed upstairs and into the ride.

While you wait, you can take a look at some Tonight Show memorabilia, play Jimmy Fallon retro style video games and enjoy live performances by the Ragtime Gals barbershop quartet

 

The ride also features, what Universal is calling 'the world's first flying theater' which takes guests through the streets of New York City and all the way to the moon and back. They'll encounter landmarks from the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building and everything in between.

 

Race Through New York starring Jimmy Fallon officially opens on April 6th, but the park is allowing a few guests to experience it intermittently this month during their tech rehearsal period.
