The traditional ribbon was replaced with a metal chain and Vin Diesel and his team were presented with bolt cutters to do the honour.

The actor says of the ride, "It's pretty surreal. I'm more excited than anybody to get on that tram, and I want to be in the front seat and know what this thing feels like. When we were making it, it felt like we were creating something that I had never experienced. We employed all kinds of incredible technology. It's going to be a unique experience."

The ride opens to the pubic on Wednesday (24Jun15).
