It’s been almost a year since Universal Studios announced that it will be adding a The Secret Life of Pets ride to it’s Los Angeles theme park, and the wait is almost over! The new attraction, which boasts 64 animated figures is set to open to guests on Mar. 27.

Based on the 2016 hit film, The Secret Life of Pets ride will take visitors along for the adventure with a group of pets hoping to get adopted into their fur-ever homes. Alongside Max, Snowball, Gidget, Chloe and Duke, and some other animal friends, riders will assume the role of stray puppies as they zip along a track headed for the ultimate destination: a Pet Adoption event.

The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash! will combine live, dimensional and animated characters with hyper-realistic media as guests on board the ride vehicles are transported through the streets of New York City, hitting a variety of obstacles on their way to being adopted.

The state-of-the-art ride will showcase optical enhanced gesture-tracking technology. Guests have the option to be transformed into a stray puppy for the duration of the ride––a truly unique experience each and every time they ride.

The new ride will be situated next to the “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” and “Super Silly Fun Land” attractions.
