Jimmy Fallon is late night's current king, consistently leading the ratings race on NBC's "Tonight Show." It seems he's so popular that he will be getting his own amusement park ride at Universal Orlando, "Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon."

The comedian made the announcement during a recent episode of his show (see above). The experience will send riders through Studio 6B in Rockefeller Center, where the show takes place, and then off onto a crazy New York City adventure.

Fallon and his team are collaborating with the folks at Universal Studios Florida to create the ride's storyline. The experience is set to open in 2017 and will replace "Twister. . . Ride It Out." It all makes sense, given that the "Tonight Show" and Universal are part of the same NBCUniversal family.
