Moreover, the roller coaster will feature a sound wall longer than two football fields, built with Acoustiblok material to absorb the noise. It will also feature two half-pipe shields to encase the sound at its source. As for the track itself, it will be filled with pea gravel, which will reportedly help keep the sound down.

As for the ride’s location, the Fast and Furious Roller Coaster will be located in the middle of the theme park. In fact, the entrance to the ride will be on the upper deck, across from the Universal Plaza. The east side straddles the Starway over to Jurassic World on the west side.

As for ride hours, the roller coaster will line up with normal park hours including peak season and special events. In the meantime, Universal has also assured local residents that it will limit construction hours on the new ride. Crews will work Monday through Friday from 7 am to 7 pm, and 8 am to 6 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
