Make the whole area a tribute to Kenan Thompson lol. That man has put in his whole life doing sketch comedy whether it be SNL for 15+ years or All-That, which just so happens to have been taped at USF.
I'd be all in for "Race through New York Starring Kenan Thompson."

That's the interesting thing to me as well. It would be mighty awkward to fire your host, but him still have a prominent role in a ride in one of your parks that's based on The Tonight Show. The ride name including his name and his image all over the place.

I'd have to think in the event something like were to suddenly happen, the ride would be shut down for a sudden "refurb".
I'm guessing that would also depend on what terms he'd leave - if it was amicable, then I could see the ride staying open for a while. If it was an actual firing, absolutely, they'd probably purge themselves of him.

First ride on this today. WTF?! I had heard it wasn't great, but this is the worst ride Universal has ever put together. I am sure Jimmy Fallon is a nice man and he must be popular to have his own shows but he comes across as incredibly annoying on his ride!

The ride itself is boring too. I don't have much love for The Simpsons, but it's a more entertaining simulator than this gibberish.

He is incredibly annoying. One of the worst interviewers ever. Forever laughing at his own jokes.

I think the experiences as a whole is fun because of the queue. The ride itself makes absolutely no sense though lol I don’t hate Fallon but don’t love him either so this doesn’t bother me. I really just wish we’d see something with SNL. It’s much more timeless considering its beginning its 45th season this Saturday

We like it a lot. it's Alene's favorite attraction in the Studios park. Not in my personal top five but it's still lots of fun, especially the pre shows. ...Plus it's one of the highest ranked attractions on USF guest surveys. So the general public certainly likes it. The attraction occupies a very small space so it's about all they could have put there.

Its called "race through NY" yet you are going like 2 miles per hour and youre just following Fallon, not racing.
And then instead of fully traveling through new york you just stupidly end up in the moon for some reason.

Yeah, this is worse than fast and furious
