Only a lot smaller of a circle and no Carnotaurus skeleton in the center. On a different note, I'm hoping that there are more items relating to the movies to look at while in line, like Scorponok's stinger (you KNOW that had to be moved into NEST custody), maybe some deactivated Decepticons, and prototypes for Wheeljack's weapons...? Also, I want that Allspark shard as a centerpiece.

And before anyone says it, I do not like the movies at all, mainly because of the "director" (READ: TOTAL HACK) ruining what could have been fun, but I am a fan of the series just for proving that a live action Transformers movie is possible as well as making believable (for the most part) robots.

Think of the Spider-Man ride at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure for comparison.

I first said it in the thread where the ride was first announced and I'll do it here too, it should be at Universal Hollywood about one year after its finished in Singapore then about another 2 years before it comes here to Florida. This is all based on a couple of rides that took about that time frame to get here, Soarin' (EPCOT) and Jurassic Park (IoA).

Nice, but knowing universal, this would be maybe about 1/50th of the queue area. If anyone been to the Singapore USS, the revenge of the mummy ride has an INSANELY long queueing line,and even in peak hours you still have to walk about 3 minutes just to get to the queue. But can't wait to ride it :grin: , hope they release the exclusive Evac when this ride launches here.

The Transformers: The Ride blog has been updated with a new image revealing the NEST facility orientation room where new recruits will be introduced to the Autobots. Keep in mind this blog is providing updates for the Universal Singapore version of the ride, but it's likely the stateside version will feature the same set up. Image mirrored below.

HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL: This is the orientation room in the NEST facility; Recruits who will join in the battle will receive a briefing from General Morshower here. You must pay attention when you arrive, it is important to know our allies.

AUTOBOTS RACHET and BUMBLEBEE will explain to you how the power-hungry DECEPTICONS came to Earth in search of the ALLSPARK. The leader of the AUTOBOTS, OPTIMUS PRIME, will also introduce the other AUTOBOTS: IRONHIDE, SIDESWIPE, and WHEELIE.

Once you are briefed, you will need to prepare yourself, mentally and physically, for this Ultimate 3-D Battle.

This sounds fun. And if closer to Spider Man's 3D ride, that sounds fun either. But when I was there in Orlando taking the Spider Man's ride, only 1 time I had completed the entire ride, the other two times power went out right in the middle. Thumbs down on that.

It'd be awesome to have the proper voice actors return - I've heard that actors generally take part in the creation of Universal rides (e.g. Brendan Fraser with The Mummy, Will Smith with MIB). Perhaps the robots finally have their time in the spotlight.

This is shaping up pretty well.

The Ride was directed by Michael Bay, so I'm assuming as such. I know I'm anxious to go to Hollywood Studios in California in 2012 to find this out.

It will be a couple years before we get to take a trip to Universal in Florida, so hopefully this will be up and running there by then. Looks awesome though. Makes me wish there was a full Tranformers section of a theme park somewhere with sections dedicated and designed as each iteration of TF franchise history. How cool would it be to wander through attractions for G1, G2, Beast Wars, Armada, Energon, Cybertron, IDW, Marvel, and all the rest? It will never happen, but it would be so cool to walk into a full scale G1 Ark with animatronic Autobots doing there thing and get a feel for what it was like to be Spike. Excuse me while I go on dreaming now ;)

Good news for fans in Singapore, TRANSFORMERS The Ride will be premiering at Universal Studios Singapore on December 3rd! Director Michael Bay will be attending an exclusive launch party on December 2nd to commemorate the event.

I am very excited about the debut of this attraction at Universal Studios Singapore. Finally, TRANSFORMERS fans will not only have the chance to watch the AUTOBOTS battle the DECEPTICONS on screen; they’ll actually be part of the action.


Guest will experience 12 scenes that seamlessly combine sets, 3D digital media, and special effects as new NEST recruits tasked with protecting an Allspark shard during a Decepticon attack. Guest will be introduced and transported by Evac, a new Autobot created exclusively for the ride who will receive his own toy in 2012. Visit Transformers The Ride Blog for further details.

American fans can look forward to Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood in the Spring of 2012.

It likely takes place before DOTM, since Megatron is also in his ROTF body (and alive, for that matter). ;)

And, come on, it's a theme park ride! How can it not be cheezy? :lol:
