If you can’t score tickets to “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, you’ll soon be able to experience the next best thing.

A new attraction based on the No. 1 late-night talk show, set to open at Universal Orlando Resort this spring, promises the “world’s first-ever flying theater.”

Exactly how the 72 audience members that the faux-theater can fit will “fly” is unclear, but that’s just one part of the “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

“The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon will soon have an attraction based on him at Universal Orlando.

The ride will take guests on a dash through the streets of New York City, and past landmarks like the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty.

Besides the main event, the attraction also boasts sideshows like performances from the show’s Ragtime Gals barbershop quartet in the Studio 6B Club — named for NBC studio where “The Tonight Show” is taped.

In the Studio 6B Club, fans can also sit at a mock version of Fallon’s famous desk and send Thank You Notes, as the host often does. There’s also a “Jimmy Drive” video game, and the opportunity to watch show clips.

Guests at the Florida theme park attraction can also get a look at real props and set pieces from the long-running show, like cue cards, suits from hosts through the years, and cameras used to record the show.

And The Roots, the house band for “The Tonight Show,” have set the soundtrack for the attraction.
