VIDEO - Transformers: The Ride 3D soft opens in Orlando!

Tonight Transformers: The Ride 3D soft opened to Universal Orlando park guests for the first time. I sped over there as soon as I found out to ride spin and capture it all.

Three videos...

Detailed queue walkthrough and full ride:

Full ride (queue highlights):


I've also posted lots of photos, information, and thoughts here, including comparisons to Hollywood's version:

The wait time was posted at 90 minutes when I got there, but it only really took an hour to get through. Can't wait to go back and ride it again and again!

This isn't fair for people who plan on going to the grand opening and being the first to ride it. Soft openings serve no purpose to me. It upsets me how real fans want to be the first to rise it and then they just let random people in on a random day.

The only people who are the first to ride it are the ones who created it. That's generally followed by employee previews. And then unannounced soft openings.

Without the soft openings, you might get there on opening day and find a broken attraction, or one not operating efficiently. They need to hold these "technical rehearsals" to make sure everything is running smoothly in time for opening day. There's nothing worse than inviting the world (and the press) to come see a brand new ride and having it break down.

I'm sorry, but who cares? First of all this is the exact same ride as the original. Next to that there's no props to be given for being the 'official' first person to get to ride it. There's no prize, no winning cheque.

Just go to the ride and enjoy yourself, that's all that matters.

Megatron and his Voice

Nice to see him re-united with his original voice, really changes the character in a lot of ways, a lot of GOOD ways.

If you wanted to be the first person to ride it, you should have booked a plane ticket to Singapore in December of 2011.

agreed. The "real" voices for Megs and Prime make this a really stirring experience. I'd LOVE to take this little trip. Looks like it's very well done.
