I can't believe this, but with everything that we were doing last December (and man, was that the best month ever for coverage here on TPI!), I never managed to upload the video from the Transformers opening ceremony in Singapore. So here it is, now:

Universal Studios Hollywood will open early this weekend, at 7:30 am Saturday-Monday, for extra-ride-time access to Transformers: The Ride 3D. The Studio Tour also will open early on those days.

Glad to see it officially open. I remember initially back in 2008 when it was announced and how excited I got, but knew it was going to take a while to be open, and now here it is.

I'm counting down the days until I can experience it for myself this summer.

Me and my family are going to l.a next month around late june. Can any of you guys do a discussion on how to avoid the lines while being able to see all the attractions in one day including the studio tour. It'd mean the world to me and I'd really appreciate it. Thanks guys.
