We managed to ride the relatively new Transformers 3D ride at Universal Studios this February. As with all the rides at Universal the build up/queuing areas to the actual ride all form part of the story and your journey into the ride itself. Universal says “As a N*E*S*T recruit, you’ll find yourself on the front lines of an intergalactic war between the Autobots and Decepticons. You’ll fight alongside Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, trying to keep the Allspark from falling into enemy hands.”
Very similar to The Amazing Adventures of SpiderMan ride in Islands of Adventure, you enter a moving 3-D motion simulator which takes you into battle. There are loads of special effects and the ride definitely has the wow factor, especially for boys (big and little alike!).
I enjoyed it – would give it 5* although I prefer SpiderMan as I am more familiar with the characters. A word of warning – if you are not good on simulators this is not the ride for you!
