Hollywood star Vin Diesel has dedicated new Fast & Furious Universal Studios Ride Supercharged to late actor Paul Walker.

The 47-year-old star traded the franchise's signature muscle cars for a new kind of ride, which opened on June 24, said The Hollywood Reporter.

"I'm more excited than anybody to get on that tram, and I want to be in the front seat and feel it out and get that adrenaline pumping," said Diesel.

Supercharged is a 3-D motion addition to the park's classic studio tour tram ride.

It is an explosion-packed car chase using hydraulics and HD images projected on a massive 360-degree screen. Riders are blasted with wind, fog and mist as they attempt a high-speed escape through crashing cars and gunfire.

"I know when we were making it, it felt like we were creating something that I had never experienced. We employed all kinds of incredible technology," said Diesel before opening the ride at the ceremony.

The Furious 7 actor, along with co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Jason Statham, dedicated the ride to his Fast & Furious co-star Walker, who died in a car crash in 2013. Diesel previously announced that the 8th installment will be released on April 14, 2017.
