This dynamic new ride, inspired by Universal Pictures’ blockbuster film and featuring cast members from the series, including Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Luke Evans, is a technologically advanced mega-attraction designed to catapult guests into the high-stakes underworld of fast cars and international crime cartels.

Coupled with an intense blend of thrilling features, “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” takes guests on a wild ride that begins the moment they board the Studio Tour.

After experiencing “Fast & Furious—Supercharged,” Vin Diesel reacted by saying, “Wow…wow was that cool.  It’s incredible, it’s really remarkable. It’s not like anything I’ve ever seen.  Everyone on the tram said, ‘Can we do it again?’  It’s super cool!”

To raise awareness and funds for the Esophageal Cancer, on Saturday, May 2, 2015 more than 40 brave men and woman rappelled down the 24 stories of our hotel, almost a 300 foot drop. We were honored to be a part of this event that was spearheaded by Esophageal Cancer Action Network, in partnership with Over the Edge USA.

DSC_0222A welcome evening reception kicked things off on Friday night. Attendees were treated to a buffet dinner created especially by our Executive Chef, George Sit. The music played and the cocktails flowed as those who gathered remembered loved ones they have lost or that are struggling with this type of cancer. They shared stories, laughed and reminisced on the reasons that had lead up to this challenge.

Saturday’s sun shone clear and bright as the harnesses were secured to the rigging on the top of our 24DSC_0294 story glistening mirrored building. On lookers gathered in our pool area, under the shade of our palm trees, as they watched each person descend down our tower. Supportive cheers filled the air as each person safely reached the ground. There was something for everyone, including a rock climbing wall for the little ones, background tunes provided by a DJ and food trucks to feed the hungry crowd.

DSC_0330This was definitely an amazing day and an event we all will not soon forget. It isn’t too late to support ECAN. Donations for those who did the descent are being accepted until June 2, 2015 – simply go to http://www.storiestosavelives.org/donate/ to place your support.
