My grandson was always a Disney fan. Heck, he’s been to Disney World s many times I’ve lost count.
But after showing him a YouTube sneak peak video on Transformers: The Ride 3D, Universal Studios has surpassed Walt Disney World in his mind. He sees Universal Studio’s rides as way cooler.
That wasn’t always the case. Yes, Universal has a string product. But until Islands of Adventure debuted in Orlando, along with CityWalk, it was always kinda like the redhead stepchild people always joke about.
With a series of exciting roller coasters and water rides based on comic book characters and movies at Islands of Adventure, Universal became a serious player on the Orlando amusement park landscape.
With the success, more action-oriented rides began showing up at Universal Studios Hollywood, transforming the bland into the extraordinary.
Basically, Universal has found a way to place you inside a movie or comic book … escapism at its finest.
Now comes Transformers: The Ride 3D, another motion simulator ride akin to the re-engineered Amazing Spiderman Ride 3D at Islands of Adventure.
However, Transformers is a next generation thrill ride that blends fiction and reality, along with HD 3D affects and flight simulation technology.
When it debuts May 25 it will put passengers in the middle of the adventure with Optimus Prime and Decepticons.
My grandson knows a good thing when he sees one.
