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).


I hope it will as my wife and I have a place in Florida and I like a little excuse to visit

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:

I like the cart shown in the banner. Hope that is what we will get too when it finally hits Florida. And the toy actually looks good, unlike most toys that are available after being dumped into a store at the end of a ride *coughcough*Star Tours*coughcough*...

The rwsentosa YouTube account has posted a short video introducing fans to EVAC, a character that has been developed for Transformers: The Ride. The ride will debut at Universal Studios Singapore on December 3rd, American fans can look forward to Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood in the Spring of 2012. Check out the video embedded below.


EVAC is a new recruit to the AUTOBOT team stationed on Earth and has never been in combat with DECEPTICONS before -- a bond he shares with the latest human recruits of NEST, right here at Universal Studios Singapore.

Created specially for this ride, EVAC is a Stealth Transport Bot, who is as agile and fast as they come. Built to handle rough combat situations, EVAC is eager to prove himself in battle. His specialty is transporting high‐level personnel and classified materials at hyper speeds.

The world's first TRANSFORMERS ride will open at Universal Studios Singapore on 3 December 2011.

Looks like a potential ton of fun. Hopefully it opens at both US Universal Studios... too bad it didn't open in Florida first, I'm probably going there next year.

A character form the lore. Um, yeah, sure. Cuz Movie Ride Evac totally existed before now in previous fiction before now. :roll:

Look, just because two bots share the same name doesn't make them the same person. Cybertron Evac and Movie Evac definitely aren't the same guy, and neither is Movie Ride Evac.

Specifically, Ride Evac has never seen combat before, while both Cybertron and Movie Evac have.

You can see that they simply modded Roadbuster's character model into Evac (specifically the legs, chest and lower arms remain virtually untouched), but he's still pretty cool.

Theme park enthusiast site Screamscape has shared some new images of Transformers: The Ride from Universal Studios Singapore. These images reveal a lot of the behind the scenes work that has been leading up to the December 3rd opening. We get a look at the gift shop stocked with Transformers toys and the Starbot Café dining area. Transformers: The Ride will be coming to Universal Studios Hollywood in the Spring of 2012.

I don't understand why their making such a big fuss about these TF rides that are gonna open up worldwide.

By my standards,this isn't a ride. it's waiting in line a hour+. then you go into a movie theathre,sit down & have your movie theathre seat rock back & forth while you watch a 3-D Movie.

I've personally had a few bad experiences in various amusement parks in america. going to these amusement parks movie theathre 3-D Movie rides where the seat rocks back & forth. The only reasons we went on these movie theathre rides where the theathre seats rock back & forth rides is because my older cousin took us to the amusement park & he paid for everything. my older cousin is a star trek fan & also loves the broadway type live shows.

While your waiting in line in the 90 degrees plus summer weather,getting sun burned & sweating like a pig. the line progresses,you get to see walls painted or designed in the theme of the movie.

IMHO,This isn't a ride in a amusement park. by my standards,a ride in a amusement park is a ROLLERCOASTER ride. I wouldn't even label this as a kids ride,as their is zero danger of getting hurt & zero danger of getting nauseous or throwing up on the ride or after the ride is over.

These types of movie theathre rides where the theathre seats rocks back & forth are aimed at younger kids who are not older enough nor tall enough to ride the roller coasters.

I've been compiling a scale list (largest to smallest) of the Film Transformers based on; vehicle/alternate modes (with the best dimension data possible), as many official charts I could find & most crucially, the figures I actually own and desire! If anyone would like a bit of assistance in scale or would simply like a peek at the ever-growing list, do say so! ^^

Sometimes,space is limited in these amusement parks. So in order to create more new rides,they get rid of older rides. most of the time a old ride is torn down & a newer ride gets built in it's location. depending on the budget,they might keep some stuff from the older ride & intergrate it into the newer ride.
