Universal Studios Hollywood Announces “Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!” Attraction

Universal Studios Hollywood has announced a new attraction based on the hit animated film Secret Life of Pets from Illumination Entertainment.

  • Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash will be a fully immersive experience, in which guests will assume the roles of stray puppies as they join a familiar cast of leading characters from The Secret Life of Pets — Max, Snowball, Gidget, Chloe and Duke, along with a host of other animal friends.
  • The new attraction will blend live, dimensional and animated characters with hyper-realistic media as guests zip along a track aboard ride vehicles through bustling New York City streets towards the Pet Adoption event and the ultimate happy ending: forever homes.
  • Guests will face an array of challenges and meet up with fellow animal pals eager to help guide them toward their destination.
  • “The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!” will be located next to the popular “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” and “Super Silly Fun Land” attractions and will open in 2020.
  • Illumination’s The Secret Life of Pets 2 comes to theaters June 7.
