Here is the news that many of you have been waiting for ever since it was announced that Universal Studios Hollywood was getting Transformers the Ride - it's now coming to Orlando! The announcement was posted earlier today on the official homepage of Transformers the Ride, Prepare for Battle, along with a trailer posted on Youtube, which you can check out below:

I thought this was common knowledge? This is just confirmation, surely?

The dude who used to work on the site where Transformer The Ride is being built is a Transformers fan, I met him at Botcon 2010 as he'd pulled me from the crowd to take part in the show (the one where Walken is the Director and The Rock has a cameo) a few days earlier, he ironically lost his job because of the TF Ride.

Can we say maybe botcon in Orlando for 2013 ????

Dont really think Botcon will be in Orlando, I expect this ride to be opened late summer, and botcon is held mostly before July

Wait, they're replacing the Mutha Nature attraction? Seriously? That sucks! They totally should've just put it in place of where they tore down Jaws.

Oh, and off topic, but was your friend the only guy who played that role at "Disaster!"? My dad always wanted to go up to the guy and tell him he was really impressed with how well he stayed in character the whole time, but never got the chance.

Knew about this weeks ago! Good thing is official now. Shame I just visited Orlando this year.

I believe the Jaws section is being used to build something much bigger. Rumors say they will make an expansion of Harry Potter..

You do know that the ride is being built where an empty soundstage was, right? The only thing that it was used for was storage, TNA Wrestling, and Halloween Horror Nights.

All I know, is that I'm super stoked for this.

Now that is some great freaking news! I live close to Orlando.
Xcaliber037
Sweet! Taking the whole family when it opens!
coldblooded
Oh yeah! I'm only 40 mins away!!!! Just give the opening date and I'm there.


Maybe we need a board meet up!
And maybe a BIG maybe BOTCON 2014! I can wish.

So that construction I saw while I was at Universal Orlando was TF: The Ride. I'll have to plan for a trip in the next couple of years.

I posted this weeks ago
I even posted pics from screamscape.com of them building it

Sorry if I sound rude but I hate it when I post something and poeple generally ignore it and then weeks later someone else posts it (and I didn't get a news credit for it) and everyone goes apecrap over it as if they've never heard about it when I posted it weeks ago

Search is disabled or I would find it

It was an unconfirmed rumor at the time. This is the official announcement. I'm quite excited for this, as Universal's about an hour from where I live. Maybe I'll move a bit further northeast, and get jobs with Universal and Disney so I take advantage of the park-related perks.
Russian fan
US is so far from us When do they start work in Russia?
