Transformers: The Ride 3D opens officially at Universal Studios Florida
Written by Robert Niles
After several weeks of soft openings and what might have been the fastest construction schedule in modern theme park history, Transformers: The Ride 3D opened officially at Universal Studios Florida this morning.
Based on early reviews from Theme Park Insider readers, expect this third version of Universal's Transformers ride to be every bit as popular as its older siblings in Singapore and Hollywood, which together won last year's Theme Park Insider Award as the world's Best New Theme Park Attraction. Here's one reader's review:
Spider-Man on crack. Bigger, faster, more intense. Nonstop vehicle motion and an incredible sense of simulated speed. Larger-than-life screens with vivid and clear projections. Eye-popping 3D. An fantastic experience and a new standard for themed attractions.
If you haven't been following Theme Park Insider for long, we've been covering Transformers from the start, and we were the only U.S.-based news outlet to cover the ride's initial debut in Singapore, in December 2011. Take a look at some of our in-depth coverage of Transformers: The Ride.
