UNIVERSAL CITY (CNS) - ``The Secret Life of Pets'' is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood, with park officials announcing plans today for a ride based on the animated film that follows the antics of household animals when their owners are away.
The ride, dubbed ``The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash!,'' is scheduled to open at the theme park next year.
According to park officials, riders will take on the roles of stray puppies joining the Illumination film's animated animal stars on a quest to find homes. The ride will feature live and animated characters as riders are carried through New York City streets, overcoming various obstacles on their way to a pet-adoption event.
The ride will be located next to another attraction based on an Illumination film, ``Despicable Me Minion Mayhem.''
A sequel to the 2016 film ``The Secret Life of Pets'' is due in theaters in June.
