If you were born in the 80’s, you grew up watching the Transformers battle over earth. Now is your chance to fight with them! Who’s side are you on?
The new Transformers ride opens at Universal Studios Hollywood in May 2012 and is expected to be big fun, big effects, and big budget. This is your chance to join the heroic Autobots in an intergalactic battle against the villainous Decepticons. The ride will feature high-definition 3-D images, large-scale animatronic characters, flight simulation technology, and an original story line. Michael Bay is also on board as a creative consultant.
Universal officials are already calling the new Transformers attraction “the greatest ride in theme park history.” Universal has tapped the voice actors from the “Transformers” film series as well as Industrial Light and Magic to create the 3D characters and visuals for the ride, which Variety reports cost “significantly more” than $40 million.
As for the ride, you will be recruited for a mission by the NEST military organization to join the Autobots in an alien robot showdown with the Decepticons. You will be transported through the Transformers attraction in a blue Autobot vehicle with three rows of seats. During the ride, you will fly above city streets and through high-rise buildings while battling a Decepticon robot named Ravage. Along the way, you will encounter Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, and other Transformers characters.
In one scene from the ride, a robotic animal stands atop a military-like vehicle as you pass the blacklight-lit montage. Another scene shows the Bumblebee robot in action surrounded by military planes, tanks and, helicopters.
