Hmm....I'll pass.

Sadly, I'm still more intrigued by the rumored Potter transportation link between the parks.

Good move for the park. It's a higher capacity ride (1800-1900pph) with a low height requirement based on a very popular franchise. Perfect way to bridge the gap until Harry Potter 2.0

I will say it is definitely a more efficient use of space than what was there previously!

This will be a great addition to Universal Orlando! I absolutely love Transformers at USH, so I'm sure it'll be great in Orlando and a big success (with a nicer facade I'm guessing). :p

Should be interesting to see what HHN looks like in about 4 years after they finish up Transformers and Potterver 2.0 at the studios park.

Enjoy your awesome giant robot facade, Florida, you over-privileged bastards. ;)

BTW, the new moderator banners look awesome!

Although I am not a fan of motion simulators or 3D rides, Im excited for this ride for Universal as it needed a refreshing E ticket attraction. I'm no fan of the Spiderman ride as it sucks, but I'm looking forward to the Transformers #D ride for the action. I love that it will help that deadzone between hollywood and new york be spruces up a bit. It'd be really cool if they added a transformers restaurant where mel's is and moved mels to fit in with cabana bay, but wishful thinking lol.

If you think Spiderman sucks, then I can't imagine you'll like the Transformers ride much, either. At least for the Hollywood version, I was a little bummed as it wasn't as "intense" of a ride as Spiderman, in terms of the spinning and the unique motion feeling these rides give you. On top of that it's mostly JUST screens and maybe a piece of a set here or there. If you're purely looking for action sequences (which Spiderman totally has), I guess you might like what the screens have to offer....

I know it's my opinion, but the Spiderman rides story, visuals, fun, and thrill surpasses Transformers.

BUT TRANSFORMERS IS A GOOD RIDE, don't get me wrong.
