Now imagine if you could cram all the Percocets, ibuprofen, and aspirin in your bathroom cabinet into one blended, three-ounce tablet. That's what you'd need to handle it.
It's over 10 years since Spiderman debuted in Orlando and technology has moved on a whole heap in that time. Whilst we knew that Transformers was going to use the same ride system as Spiderman I kind of expected the same level of design creativity as was put into Harry Potter. It would take that ride and lift it to a whole new level with additional twists. Instead what we seem to have is Spiderman but a bit more frenetic. Hell it even seems to include a free-fall sequence. Where's the imagination? Where's the 'thinking outside of the box' that Universal have shown so magnificently in HP? No wonder there are no plans to bring Transformers to Orlando - it appears that it would add very little new to the park and that's a shame.
I think this is a missed opportunity and am rather disappointed at what I'm hearing, despite the praise...
Tell me why I'm wrong Robert or is everybody putting a brave face on this?
That said, though, sure, I'd love to see something that took attraction design in a fresh new direction, rather than improving upon the Spider-Man platform. But this ride is great fun, and ultimately I think you've got to give a ride props if you really enjoy it. Which I did.
Robert, any idea on the similarities or differences between the Singapore version and the upcoming Hollywood version?
Keep 'em coming!
Those high winds look scary..
Are there elevators in the ride? According to Wikipedia, the ride vehicles get into elevators.
Coup said no Transformers in Orlando. Too similar to Spider-Man. He waffled with the same never-say-never disclaimer people always give you about this sort of thing, but seemed pretty clear to me.
He also shot down the Harry Potter in Singapore claim, saying that there were "no plans" to bring the Wizarding World to Singapore.
