This week Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ms Matched and The Plateau start filming in Vancouver and British Columbia.

Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon aka Project 727 (TV Presentation)
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon is an upcoming theme park ride set to debut at Universal Orlando Resort in 2017. The 3D ride is based on one of the most popular segments from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Contestants will experience a visit to The Tonight Show studio and participate in an exciting “Race Through New York”. Over the next two weeks, production will take place in Vancouver for some of the visual elements that will appear during the ride.

According to UniversalOrlando.com, ride-goers will “rocket through the streets-and skies-of New York City, from the deepest subway tunnels to the tallest skyscrapers, encountering colorful characters, famous landmarks and anything else that comes to Jimmy’s mind”.

Although it was uncertain if Jimmy would be in Vancouver during production, he posted the below behind the scenes photo on April 18th and made an appearance at Paul McCartney’s concert at Rogers Arena on April 20th.

Jimmy’s portion of the project started filming last fall, check out the picture he posted to Instagram:
