Transformers: The Ride – 3D at Universal Studios Florida.
3 out of 5. The unique combination of state-of-the-art 3D projection, motion simulation, and intense battle sequences may be frightening to some. That being said, there is no actual high-speed movement and the storyline is no different than what you’ve seen in the Transformers movies.
Expect wait times to be 30 to 60 minutes throughout most of the day, and up to 90 minutes in the middle of very busy days.
What you wish you knew before you experienced it
EVAC, your ride vehicle, is a Transformer and serves as the story’s narrator. This is important to know before the ride kicks off as it explains the voice your hearing and why your vehicle is getting involved in the fight.

Transformers: The Ride – real guest reviews

To all of the Transformer haters this ride was the bomb. I first did the Spiderman ride then Transformers.The Transformers was better by far. I give it 5 stars all day.
The entire family really enjoyed this ride. The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star review is that it did make me a little nauseated (note that I do get motion sickness easily). I have never been a fan of the movies (I have never seen them) but this did not take away from the ride at all. If you like getting thrown into an amazing robot adventure - this ones for YOU! Wait times for non express were a little high, but Express was a breeze!
Amazing. One word to describe it. It is NOT similar to Spiderman for you are the hero in this one, Unlike Spiderman you are (More or less) the victim of the villains. This ride is by far the best ride I have ridden. I prefer to ride the single line because it is much quicker instead of the main line. The effects are good and the screens is really good. Keep the amazing rides going Universal!
I love these virtual type rides and even though I'm not an avid Transformers fan, this ride is still loads of fun! I highly recommend to anyone looking for a wild ride!
I don't personally care for this ride. It is so fast-paced and really whips you around. I usually feel quite queasy afterward. I am not a fan of the Transformers, so I cannot really get into the theme of the ride either. If you like fast paced rides and are a Transformers fan, then you will probably love this ride. If not, maybe you could give it a pass.
