Visit The Fast and the Furious Cars at Universal Studios Florida

Now through the end of April, you’ll be able to delve into the world of The Fast and the Furious at Universal Studios Florida. Three cars from Universal Pictures The Fate of the Furious will make their debut in-park in the San Francisco area across from Lombard’s Seafood Grille.

Guests can gear up for the April 14 release of The Fate of the Furious  by snapping a photo of the cars and read up on how they were used in the movie. Then, in 2018, guests will be able to join the Fast family by riding Universal Orlando Resort’s new attraction, Fast & Furious: Supercharged.

Get your pic next to Dom (Vin Diesel)’s Ice Charger, a 1970 Dodge Charger with a high-speed Hellcat V8 engine.

Try Unique Island-Inspired Food at Volcano Bay at Universal This Summer

Universal’s award-winning culinary team, led by Corporate Executive Chef Steven Jayson, has elevated the food and beverage experience with the menu they created for Volcano Bay. From the minute you arrive in the morning until well into the night, you’ll have more than 60 delicious options to choose from, from snacks to entrees to desserts. You are sure to love the food at Volcano Bay!

Here’s a sneak peek at just a few.

When you’re here, you (and your taste buds) will enjoy a wide range of island-inspired dishes, all inspired by the flavors of the South Pacific. What suits your tastes? Try a Poke Poke Bowl or Mango BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich or Island Chicken Salad. Plus—for the grownups—you can enhance your relaxation experience and sip on refreshing signature cocktails and beer while you lounge by the water.

There’s no denying how delicious the slowly-smoked glazed Hawaiian Ribs with boniato mash and sweet plantains is. One of my personal favorites is the Coconut Curry Chicken made with braised chicken, green coconut curry sauce, white rice, coconut and cilantro with sweet plantains. And our specialty burgers are sure to fill up for a day of thrills and relaxation.

You’ll find mouthwatering island flavors for everyone at these dining locations, all conveniently placed around the park:

  • Kohola Reef Restaurant & Social Club
  • Whakawaiwai Eats
  • Bambu
  • The Feasting Frog

You’ll never have to walk far to fuel up for more sliding, splashing, relaxing and laughing with your family and friends.

If you love traditional theme park food, have no fear. There are options like chicken fingers, hamburgers and pizza for you to enjoy as well. And many of these dishes are available as part of Volcano Bay’s Universal Dining Plan option.

If you’re not already hungry enough, here’s a sneak peak at some of the food at Volcano Bay. You’ll be able to enjoy everything at Universal’s Volcano Bay when it grand opens on May 25.
