    I am excited for this, but I hope they make one for Universal Orlando as that's the only chance I will get for ever riding it.

    I hope it has the Ark and Teletran One. And that you play the role of Spike or Sparkplug as you ride.

    :p

    They are only putting this at Universal Hollywood, and Singapore. There are no plans to put one in Orlando, which is an automatic FAIL in my book.

    Obviously you don't follow many Orlando based Theme Park sites, cause UO are thinking of possibly brining it over, but it is not confirmed, so don't rule out an UO opening.

    This is very cool. I'm going to have to visit this ride. Hopefully it looks good when finished.

    Does anyone know, is it some kind of roller coaster or what?

    I's kind of a HD Simulator ride. Just like Star Tours, The late Back to the Future Ride, The Simpsons Ride or Body Wars. You ride in a moving cart swinging back and forth and the are Giant screens and special effect robots around you. I it almost like the Spiderman Ride at Orlando Universal. Imagine riding a cart and all the screen look like the robots (autobot/decepticons) are coming at you.

    Not sure where you get your info from, but there aren't any plans to bring it to Orlando do to the fact that Spiderman is already there, and it's basically the same type of ride.

    i bet they are just going to sit you in a outdoor auditorium and set explosions off everywhere so you can feel the explosion heat first hand like MB does

    yah, got a call back from a theme park insider.
    Ok here's the deal, transformers the ride will be very similar, almost identical to the Spiderman ride found in Universal Orlando Islands of Adventure. Initially the plans were to bring the Spiderman ride to Universal Hollywood BUT then Disney but out Marvel and soon Islands of Adventure will lose is naming and licensing rights to Marvel names such as Hulk and.....you guessed it....Spiderman. So welcome Transformers to Hollywood and when re-theming time comes to Florida (probably by 2012) they are probably going to re-theme Spiderman to Transformers. Still with me?

    Well, certainly hope it comes to Orlando. That's my best chance at riding it.
