Illumination’s blockbuster The Secret Life of Pets films are getting a brand new ride at Universal Studios Hollywood!
The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash! is an engaging new ride where guests will join Max, Snowball, Gidget, Chloe, and Duke, along with some of their other animal friends through the streets of New York in a heartfelt adventure and transform into stray puppies as they journey to become loved and adopted. This exciting new ride will help answer that age-old question, “What are your pets really doing when you’re not at home?”
The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash! is an innovative new ride offering 64 animatronics and unbelievably realistic media, from blinking eyes to eyebrow movements, head tilts, nods, ear curls, and full torso twists, plus so much more. This interactive ride creates an experience, unlike any other theme park ride.
Guests will be seated in vehicles built to look like cardboard boxes (just like the one Katie finds Max in) and travel along a track with a New York City backdrop towards the Pet Adoption event and to their forever homes.
Other special features of the ride include state-of-the-art optical enhanced gesture-tracking technology. This technology helps identify each guest as a unique stray puppy for the duration of the ride. Giving guests 15 different puppy options to choose from, you are bound for a unique experience each time you ride.
Virtual Line technology is another feature available for guests to optimize their park experience. Park-goers can find access to Virtual Line for free through the official Universal Studios Hollywood app, on Google Play, or by visiting the Virtual Line kiosk found in the New York City subway station, located next to the ride. The virtual line gives guests the options to experience the ride based on the next available ride times and will be available in the theme park as needed.
The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash! will be located on Pets Place, formally known as Baker Street located next to Despicable Me Minion Mayhem and Super Silly Fun Land attractions, and opens March 27, 2020, at Universal Studios Hollywood.
