For anyone longing to experience The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon live, but unable to make it to New York City, the second best thing will soon be available. That is, if you’re willing to make a trip to Orlando, Fla.

On Tuesday night’s episode of The Tonight Show, the host revealed that Universal Orlando Resort will debut a ride in 2017 called “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

“It’s scary, it’s fun, it’s exciting,” Fallon said. “Do you know the ‘Harry Potter’ rides? It’s like that, except instead of Harry Potter, it’s me. Instead of Hogwarts, it’s New York City.”

The theme park attraction will start at a recreated Studio 6B before taking riders on a virtual trip to several iconic New York City sites, according to Variety. And while Fallon said he couldn’t talk about the details of the ride, he did reveal that it will be in 3D and will feature “smoke, descents [and] water.”

“Our team found inspiration in the outrageous celebrity races that have become one of the most popular segments of Jimmy’s Tonight Show,” Jason Surrell, creative director for Universal Creative, wrote on the company’s blog. “The source material already features a wild and crazy ride almost every week! And since Universal Studios Florida has long been famous for placing guests in the middle of their favorite movies and TV shows, we thought it was a perfect fit.”

And the most exciting part according to Fallon himself: “On the way out, there’s a gift shop. You can buy a t-shirt for 200 bucks.”
