3-D technology has certainly come a long way since Spiderman first hit the park scene. With the right touch, this new Transformers ride could be something really impressive, and gain the same kind of headlines and national attention that Spiderman did.
It's a shame they aren't using Kuka, especially after the unbelievably positive response HP has gotten. A transformers ride with Kuka arms seems like a match made in heaven. Then again, I see the ride working really well with either ride system. I'm just really hoping for an army of giant transformers animatronics.
Hello everyone, I am Peter Jackson. You may recognize me from other films like Heavenly Creatures, Forgotten Silver, and The Lovely Bones. Today, however, I am here to talk to you about Primate/Dinosaur issues; a current hot topic in society.
Universal Studios Hollywood asked me to create an attraction using King Kong as our staring primate. I strive to include my audience by placing them *inside* the story, instead of watching the story come to life frontally. Yes, I did indeed say frontally.
Two years after a tragic fire on the Universal Studios Backlot destroyed the former King Kong attraction, we invited celebrities who you may not recognize and members of the local media to be the first people to experience King Kong 360 3-D. By “first people”, I mean after myself, the attraction creators, Park Management, Employee previews, and close to 20,000 guests who were lucky enough to experience the soft opening. But I digress…
To further explore the relationship between Primates and Dinosaurs, the Wildlife WayStation provided the tools necessary for us to understand animal behavior.
Here we have…some sort of mammal.
And here, we have…another mammal.
And here we have the star of almost every film on the SyFy channel, surrounded by mammals.
Here, we studied the relationship between famous mammals, and non-famous mammals.
Wayne Brady seen here, is classified as a famous mammal.
It was then time for me to address the world, as we conducted the first ever press conference in 3-D.
9 out of 10 people agree that I look better in 3-D than in person.
After declaring King Kong 360 3-D officially open, someone looked into my eyes, and I informed them that their path now leads beyond the Curtain of Doom!
But first, I treated them to drums and dancers from Skull Island.
Here, we see the first tram making the hair-pin Turn of Death into the bowels of Skull Island.
Apparently the members of the media find themselves too important to hold onto their 3-D glasses during the first portion of the tour.
Just look at the talent of this tram driver!
A successful turn is achieved!
Here, we show a POV of the Turn of Death.
Are you ready to screen my creation? Excellent, for those of you talented enough to retain your 3-D glasses up until this part of the tour, you may now put on your 3-D glasses. Welcome to….
Jurassic Park! Bloody hell! Who put the wrong slide into the projector! You’re fired! Welcome to…
Please come see my fantastic creation, at Universal Studios Hollywood: The Entertainment Capital of L.A.!

The pictures without the whole 3D experience really don't do the ride justice. I'm gonna go back and see it again tomorrow, I would like to see the reaction of people who actually came to see it, as opposed to people who just randomly got a peek.
