Universal Studios Florida has been confirmed as the third park to open Transformers: The Ride – 3D, following its success at Universal Studios Hollywood and Singapore.
The blockbuster attraction, inspired by the Transformers film franchise and Hasbro toy line, will open at the Orlando park, part of Universal Orlando Resort, in summer 2001. It should give a shot in the arm to Universal Studios since the massive success of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at neighbouring Islands of Adventure.
Combining larger-than-life Transformers characters and an exciting storyline with life-like high definition CGI media, 3D technology and special effects, the attraction will place riders right in the middle of an epic battle between good and evil.
“Transformers: The Ride – 3D is the perfect addition to Universal Orlando’s thrilling theme park experiences,” highlights 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.”
Work has already begun on creating the new attraction, which will have one of the shortest build times in Universal history. In the meantime Universal guests keen for a 3D dark ride adventure can check out The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man at Islands of Adventure, upgraded with new high definition 3D.
