Transformers: The Ride – 3D at Universal Studios Florida

What is Transformers: The Ride – 3D?

The Decepticons, led by the ruthless Megatron, have brought their war to the streets of Orlando as they try to take possession of the AllSpark and enslave humanity. As a N.E.S.T. recruit, jump into this intense 3D simulator dark-ride experience and fight alongside Optimus Prime and the Autobots, including a designed-just-for-this-ride Transformer, Evac.

Where is Transformers: The Ride – 3D located?

In Production Central, which is in Universal Studios Florida.

Transformers: The Ride – 3D – height restrictions and other factors

Height requirement is 40 inches; has Express Pass access and a single-rider line.

Transformers: The Ride – 3D – 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 gets going, as it explains the voice you’re hearing and why your vehicle is getting involved in the fight.

Also, since we’re at it, N.E.S.T. stands for Nonbiological Extraterrestrial Species Treaty – an important part of the films that the attraction is based on.

How scary is Transformers: The Ride – 3D?

We rate Transformers three out of five Starscreams. 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 similar to what you’ve seen in the Transformers films (i.e., lots of robots fighting).

What was Transformers: The Ride – 3D’s opening date?

June 20, 2013

Transformers: The Ride – 3D – OI fun fact

This is the third installation of the Transformers ride at a Universal theme park – the first is at Universal Studios Singapore, while the second can be found in Hollywood. They all feature 13 screens up to 60 feet high.

Orlando’s version was built on the site of the former Soundstage 44, which was home to a couple of different experiences (Hercules and Xena: Wizards of the Screen and Murder, She Wrote Mystery Theater) and, typically, a Halloween Horror Nights haunted house during the fall.

Transformers: The Ride – 3D – meet ‘n greet

Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Megatron make regular appearances for meet-and-greets inside Universal Studios Florida. Although their hours are unpublished, they usually seem to come out between 10:00 am and one hour prior to park closing each day.

5 Stars. This ride was a pleasant surprise which I really enjoyed. Having seen all the movies and being a fan of the franchise I looked forward to the ride but it was better than I expected by far. Fun mixture of movement and 3D Realism. Loved it.

My all time favorite ride ever! My husband and I are season pass holders and when there is nothing going on in our city (Punta Gorda, FL). We make our way down to Universal. We ride all the rides and to date, Transformers is still by far our favorite!

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!
