YMMV / Fast & Furious: Supercharged

Go To

  • It's Short, So It Sucks!: Because the ride lifts its content from the Studio Tour sequence, the main part of the Florida attraction, starting after Shaw appears, is only about a minute and a half long. Walking through the often empty queue and watching the pre-show both take more time to get through.
  • It's the Same, So It Sucks: The main ride in Universal Studio Florida is just the sequence from the Hollywood Studio Tour transplanted into its sister park as a standalone attraction. Fans had an expectation of something like Jaws or Kongfrontation, rides based off of parts of the Studio Tour but greatly expanded upon.

  • Just Here for Godzilla: The queue for the Supercharged is much more lauded by Fast & Furious fans than the actual ride, being themed as a garaged filled with the cars from the movies and containing tons of references and Easter eggs from both the film franchise and previous Universal Studios attractions.
  • Narm:
    • The acting in this is wooden, often coming off like a amateur production.
    • The scene where Dom jumps from his car window and hangs off a helicopter that's almost as small as him.
  • Narm Charm: Though some argue that the acting does help mitigate the ride at least. It also helps that the Fast and Furious series isn’t exactly known for its incredible acting.
  • Replacement Scrappy: For Disaster!, which in turn replaced Earthquake: The Big One. Most people familiar with Earthquake stated that, even if fans weren't happy with the name change, at least Disaster! was a good replacement that didn't change much, with its added Ham and Cheese making it more enjoyable since it wasn't taking itself seriously. Supercharged, on the other hand, takes itself too seriously to be fun and not seriously enough to be thrilling, and is considered to be a sloppy, boring replacement. It gained notice during the COVID-19 Pandemic when, despite being a relatively new and heavily advertised attraction, it became one of several rides to close due to having such low popularity that Universal couldn't justify having them reopen.

  • So Bad, It's Good: While riders have polarizing views of this attraction, the ride does have its defenders for this reason. It does try to be entertaining, and quite a few people were amused by Dom hanging off the tiny helicopter.
  • Special Effects Failure:
    • The CGI work leaves a lot to be desired. For comparison, Jimmy Fallon's ride looked much better, and that had you leaving Earth at one point.
    • When Dom leaps from his car window onto the skids of a passing helicopter, we see that the copter is only slightly bigger than he is. Either Dom suddenly becomes a giant or the helicopter is the size of a go-kart. This isn't helped by the poster showing Dom to be utterly massive when hanging off of it to the point of hugging it from the top down with just his forearms.
