Rollout for Transformers: The Ride!!

Universal Studios has unveiled that an all new Transformers ride is being developed for the Hollywood and Sinapore Theme Parks. The ride will feature HD-3D footage with life size robotics all unfolding on a track based ride that puts the riders right in the middle of the action. The ride is said to open in early 2011.

Clearly we will get a full array of Transformers including Autobots and Decepticons transforming and battling right in front of the rider. The fact that this will be a ride and not just a 3D feature, like most of Universal's attractions, is very enticing. I really like the idea that the ride will move forward in a progression and not just sit there like the Simpson's ride or at Disneyland, Star Tours. The ride will replace the current Backdraft and the Special Effects Stages features, which gives the ride to have a nice chunk of space. Furthermore, the entire lower area will soon feature all movies rides including Jurassic Park, The Mummy and coming soon Transformers. Pretty cool!

How cool is this? If you live in the LA area or Singapore score! Just another reason to come to the Left coast!
