If you’re like me, you grew up in the 90’s spending the better half of your afternoons watching Transformers after school. And, you probably enjoy Michael Bay’s sensory-overload depictions of the franchise in the theater cheesy scripts and all. So, it reasons that, like me, you’re probably totally amped to hear that Transformers the Ride 3D is opening at Universal Studios Hollywood in just a few short weeks. That’s right, the epic battle for earth between the Autobots and Decepticons is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood in 3D. This is one attraction that’s going straight to the top of the Chic Dad’s summer to-do list.
What? Transformers the Ride 3D at Universal Studios Hollywood
What’s Chic? Autobots, Decepticons and a 3D fueled romp that puts you in the driver seat of a brand new Transformer, EVac.
What’s Weak? It’s only at Universal Studios Hollywood. East Coasters welcome to Hollywood!
Not only was I a major Transformers fan growing up, but the recent movies have led to a resurgence of these awesome machines, which means that my son is all about Transformers as well. And while he may prefer Bumblebee over Optimus, we can both agree that Transformers are awesome. Universal Studios released a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Transformers the Ride 3D, and it’s well worth the 2:45 to check it out.
Check out the video below:
The best part of the video, learning that Peter Cullen is the voice of Optimus Prime…”Autobots, roll out!” But I digress. The new ride puts you right in the middle of the action as you ride shotgun on the newest Autobot, Evac as the battle continues between good and evil. After seeing this video, a trip back to Universal Studios is now at the top of the Chic Dad Summer to-do list.
I think my son will get a kick out of it, and I definitely know that I will as well. I remember my first visit to Universal Studios as a young kid, taking the tram ride through the Battlestar Galactica attraction and shrieking in pure terror and delight when Jaws came jumping out of the water as the tram passed through Amityville. Things have come a long way now, with the rides being made with the same thought and production values as the movies themselves, and I can’t wait to share the joy and magic of the Transformers with Banks.
Does Chic Dad Recommend?
Absolutely. I can’t wait to ride Transformers the Ride 3D at Universal Studios Hollywood myself, and I’m sure the Transformer fan in your family would be thrilled to experience their favorite extraterrestrial transforming robots in a whole new way. I haven’t been to Universal Studios in a while, but after watching the behind the scenes trailer I’m excited to go and see and experience the rides all over again. Let me know if you decide to go too. See you in Hollywood!
