Brand new ride at Universal

Florida Guide > Universal Parks

There is some very exciting news at Universal Studios, the long anticipated new ride is about to open.

This new attraction is called Transformers The Ride: 3. D. and it takes place in the dark. Somewhat similar to the new and improved Spiderman ride, this will employ all the latest imagineering and technology.

Of course, in line with all the newer rides, there is a pre ride experience and then you are placed into 12 people vehicles that are loaded onto free roving platforms.

You are taken to the epicentre of a battle between the Autobots and The Decepticons; characters familiar to fans of the films (new one is due out soon! )

The track is some 2000 feet long and at one point you are transported up onto another floor. Some of the screens are 60 feet high which is necessary to be a background for Optimus Prime which is 30 feet tall. The screens project some our our favourite characters.
At the conclusion of the ride, you will think that you have plunged 300 feet off a building, but of course, that is all down to clever technology.

The cost of this ride is a staggering 100 million dollars and they have completed it in a year which is pretty impressive in itself.
The reason that we know so much about Transformer The Ride: 3. D is that have already installed them at Universal Hollywood and Universal Singapore and those that have ridden the ride at these places are claiming it to be the the best ride EVER so we must all put it on our list.

The only thing that will be different to the other two already installed rides is the theming on the outside and the pre ride experience.
Universal Transformers The Ride opens on june the 20th and there will be long queues. My suggestion is that you arrive in the park well before it opens and are one of the first in the queue when the park does open. Make straight for this new ride and you may not have too long to wait.

Buy your tickets for Universal (and indeed the other parks) from the link at the top of the page. Proper hard tickets at a good price.
Universal are really pushing the boat out recently with the new parades and night show and next year we have a major new part of Harry Potter due to open. Watch out Disney, they are snapping at your heels!
