A battle is brewing and Universal Studios is bringing it to the masses. Transformers: The Ride-3D will be the next blockbuster attraction to greet guests at Universal Studios Orlando. Created under license from Hasbro, Inc. and based on the Transformers brand, the ride will bring the intergalactic battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons to central Florida in the summer of 2013.
Already a “must-do” at Universal Studios Singapore and Universal Studios Hollywood, Transformers: The Ride is deemed an action-packed adventure and one of the greatest battles ever ridden. Come face to face with Megatron, dodge explosions and attacks by the Decepticons and fight to save the world with Optimus Prime and the Autobots.
“Transformers: The Ride-3D is the perfect addition to Universal Orlando’s thrilling theme park experiences,” said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative. “The ride has already proven to be a hit at our Hollywood and Singapore parks, and we’re excited that Universal Orlando guests will soon be able to join the Autobots in the fight to save the world.”
Universal has worked closely with Michael Bay, the award-winning director of the Transformers movie series to create an authentic experience that brings the non-stop action of the movies to life. The attraction combines larger-than-life Transformers characters and an exciting storyline with life-like HD CGI media, state-of-the-art 3D technology and amazing special effects that place riders right in the middle of an epic battle between good and evil.
The Transformers film trilogy includes “Transformers” (2007), “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” (2009) and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” (2011). Directed by Michael Bay, executive produced by Steven Spielberg and released by Paramount Pictures, the films have grossed more than 2$ billion combined worldwide.
“We broke the mold and have taken this ride to a new technological level in terms of blending seamless 3D,” said Michael Bay.
Transformers: The Ride is scheduled to open in the summer of 2013 at Universal Studios Orlando. It is located in the spot originally occupied by Soundstage 44. With one of the shortest build times in Universal history, Transformers is one of Universal’s most ambitious projects ever.
