Universal Orlando Resort Reveals Grand Opening Date for TRANSFORMERS: The Ride – 3D

uo-transformersAfter teasing the city of Orlando with Transformers art earlier in the week, Universal Orlando announced on Thursday, May 2, that the opening date of the new attraction, TRANSFORMERS: The Ride – 3D will be June 20, 2013.

The battle begins when guests enter the NEST facility, the headquarters for the government operation that partners with the Autobots to protect Earth from the Decepticons. While inside, they are recruited to help protect the AllSpark, a powerful energy source that would allow the Decepticons to destroy the planet. Guests board EVAC – an Autobot created exclusively for the attraction – to transport the AllSpark to safety. But beware…the Decepticons are in close pursuit.

Universal has launched an all-new “Join the Resistance” Facebook experience to prepare fans for the battle they’ll experience on the mega-attraction. “Recruits” can create their very own NEST IDs, train for battle, access exclusive photos and video and win prizes, including a trip to the attraction’s grand opening celebration on June 20.

The ride is already a hit at Universal Studios Hollywood, and it will be located in the Universal Studios side of Universal Orlando, next to Mel’s Diner. It will be included in regular admission to the park.
