2013 Theme Park Insider Tournament: Transformers: The Ride vs. Men in Black Alien Attack
Written by Robert Niles
A motley collection of evil aliens has invaded Earth, and now it's up to an unlikely, top-secret alliance of friendly aliens and highly-trained human beings to defend the planet. But they can't do it alone. They'll need your help in battling the aliens and saving Earth. But are you up to the challenge?
That's the premise for both of today's contestants in the 2013 Theme Park Insider Tournament: Transformers: The Ride
We've covered both of these rides extensively over years on Theme Park Insider. We attended the world premiere of the Transformers ride in Singapore in December 2011, then walked through the then-under-construction Hollywood version early last year. And we talked with ride designer Thierry Coup in Singapore about the attraction, as well. Dave Cobb, who headed the team that created Men in Black, also talked with us about his ride.
Transformers will be joining Men in Black at Universal Studios Florida this summer. But if you've not yet ridden both of these great attractions by visiting LA or Singapore in addition to Orlando, please read those posts linked above for background to help you make a decision. Which one of these rides would you want to hit up first on a visit to USF later this year?
