This ride opened last Dec. 3 here at Universal Studios Singapore. I waited in line for almost 2 hours and I must say that the ride (around 4+ minutes) is worth the wait! IMO, it's simply one of the best rides that USS has to offer at the moment. You will really feel that you are IN the movie. I wouldn't spoil everyone by telling about the great things you will experience in this ride so that you will be able to enjoy it as much as I did.

Universal Studios is my favorite theme park. I'm super psyched! I had an annual pass the entire time they were building that thing and finally we get a release date.

Although, I wouldn't recommend anyone trying to go on the first week. I was there when Jurassic Park first opened and waited about 6 hours for the ride while they were working out the kinks.

Even so, this is going to rock!

These things are actually kind of cool. I'm glad to see Megatron reunited with his head and spine; I'm hoping he'll get revived and fully repaired in the next movie!

So after 25 years it looks like someone is trying to dethrone Optimus in the Resurrection department.
The ride looks like something I'd be willing to check out and I'm willing to let slide the whole inconsistency issue as far as the story line just because it's an amusement ride and it's all about the fun. I just hope it stops with the ride though. If this is what we can expect from the possible subsequent movies then they are going to be a suck-fest.

If that happens, we'll just do what we did with the Mario Bros. movie and Indiana Jones 4. We'll just pretend they never happened.

Okay, now with Megatron's living status being confirmed as him being "back", it leaves a little elbow room for this to take place post-DOTM if the other Decepticons seen in this ride who died in the films were also resurrected. But if they are treated as having never died, then this'll have to be set in its own continuity.

I'm not convinced this guy can deliver a message without grandly saying that he is, in fact, Optimus Prime.

Frank Welker does a really good Hugo Weaving Megatron impression.

Which I guess means that the Geewunners can use this to further the argument that Frank Welker should have been Megatron in the movies.
