Uber Celebrates Force Friday With Star Wars-Themed Rides in New York City
After the success of their Mad Max-themed Uber rides in Seattle, Uber has decided to take things to the next level for the Star Wars bonanza that is Force Friday. If you're in the New York City area today, you could score a ride in a First Order-themed car, which I think we can all agree is a definite improvement on the usual damp-smelling NYC taxi cab. 


The themed rides are being put on in an effort to promote the new Star Wars line of Hot Wheels toys, which are now available in all good (geeky) toy stores. But these rides aren't just fun because they're themed around everyone's favorite sci-fi franchise, they're also worth a go for anyone who's into cars with some serious horsepower. Uber's fleet of themed cars are actually Dodge Chargers, which pack a great deal more punch than your usual Uber ride.



The deal keeps getting sweeter, though. As a huge Star Wars fan, I would happily pay for the chance to take a ride in one of these Trooper cars, but Uber is actually giving the rides away for free. As an additional (and ultimate) bonus, all those lucky enough to snag a ride in one of the themed cars will get a free diecast Star Wars: The Force Awakens Hot Wheels Diecast Car!
