Transformers Invade Orlando, Take No Prisoners
Ever think being part of an intergalactic battle to save the Earth might be an interesting day's work? Yes? Well head on over to Universal Studios Florida and help the Autobots fight off invading Decepticons at Transformers: The Ride, now open and ready to recruit your help.
"Transformers is one of the movie industry's most successful franchises and Universal's ride offers a four-minute, condensed version of all the action that people loved from those movies," Robert Niles, editor of Theme Park Insider told NBC News. "It's just the robots, fighting, with the audience along for the ride - literally."
Heralded by an elaborate pyrotechnics ceremony, a Transformers song by the band Cheap Trick and a flyover of private jets, Transformers: The Ride opened last week to kick off the central Florida attractions summer season. Basically, the 4 1/2 minute ride is an interactive battle between the Autobots and Decepticons.
