“Transformers: The Ride-3D” is Universal Studios Hollywood’s most ambitious ride ever. This technologically advanced, motion-based, flight simulator thrill ride is designed to completely immerse guests in the 3D-HD action-packed world of the TRANSFORMERS brand. The storyline of this exciting theme park ride introduces guests to N.E.S.T., a top-secret, military bunker, where they become AUTOBOT recruits engaged in a daunting mission to save Earth and protect the last remaining ALLSPARK shard from the evil DECEPTICONS.
Guests also had the chance to interact with MEGATRON and OPTIMUS PRIME, who through progressive voice technology have the ability to speak spontaneously with theme park guests as a dynamic extension of the immersive attraction.
