Transformers Theme Park Planned

ENI is reporting that Universal Studios Parks & Resorts has joined with Hasbro, Inc. and Dreamworks to develop a Transformers attraction based off the movies. It seems that Universal Studios Singapore will get the attraction first in 2010, followed by LA in 2011.

The attraction will fuse 3D-HD media, mega special effects and stunning robotics with a ride system that will transform perceptions of theme park experiences. The rides are scheduled to make their debuts in early 2011, first at Universal Studios Singapore and then at Universal Studios Hollywood. In "Transformers," Earth's humans are caught in the middle of an intergalactic war between the friendly Autobots and the evil Decepticons, which are able to change into a variety of objects, including cars, trucks, planes and other technological creations.

Larry Kurzweil, President and Chief Operating Officer, Universal Studios Hollywood, said "'Transformers' represents a perfect match for our theme park: an exhilarating blockbuster with a great story, clever humor, non-stop action and flawless special effects. It has all the elements necessary to become one of the world's most exciting theme park rides and a centerpiece attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood, The Entertainment Capital of L.A."

Tan Hee Teck, Chief Executive Officer of Resorts World at Sentosa, the mega resort that is home to Universal Studios Singapore, said: "It is great that Asia will be the launch pad for the first Transformers attraction. Transformers was introduced in the United States in 1983 but traces its roots to Asia. Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron are familiar names to Asian audiences, who grew up with the robot toys and love the movie. When Transformers opens in Universal Studios Singapore in 2010, it will be the first of its kind in the world. We may see a surge of Transformers mania.

  6. bob orcy here
    i dont want to spoil it, but unicorn will make an appearence at the end of the film. the planet eater driven by the matrix's power wants to consume our planet so he can grow bigger. The autobots plan is the following: ingfecting Earth core with a necrotransforming pseudovirus that tranforms erth into cybertron II, then into primus II, who will fight unicorn. But, prime miscalculated, as all humans will die in the process in an unfortunate side-effect, as earth (now cybertron II) looses gravitational field and everything flies into space.
    Bye fellas,
    Bob

  7. That's right UNICORN will make an appearance. HAHAHA

    Yes, I know, hurried post makes bad spelling jokes.

    Anyway, if this ride really gets underway, dude... DUDE. I AM SO THERE. *dies a thousand times*

    He meant the "OTHER" picture with BB in it. (Hanging above the people and "Starscream" shooting at him)

  10. I call bull until I see more, especially with Bob Orca's hap-hazard response and overly-detailed plot leak (which makes less sense than the first movie).

    Yes, I can't wait to see their version of "Unicorn."

    ReplyDelete
  11. Also, it's Orci, not "Orcy."

    Chances are good that Orcy's a troll.

  12. "Chances are good that Orcy's a troll."

    No shit genius...

    If Orci wanted to post here, i think that he would contact this blog owner, just like he did on TFW 2005 forum...

  13. While everyone is understandably in doubt about this one, I'm actually confident that this may be for real. I could be wrong. But you know, it also makes perfect sense, in this day and age of theme park entertainment, walking around life-size sculptures of your favorite Autobots/Decepticons = AWESOME PHOTO OPS, taking THE thrill ride of AWESOME with shit flying over you, and nobody's looking at you all weird 'cause they're there for the same reasons you are. Man, I'd totally dig that! And of course...

    THE GIFT SHOP.

    Let me repeat that.

    THE MOTHERF*CKIN' GIFT SHOP.

    Dude, this is like a chance at more toy/video earnings you could possibly believe for the entire TF franchise and of course for Hasbro to push additional nostalgic products (i.e. My Little Pony, GI Joe, etc.).

    Shut the *inster bad word here* up idiot.

    He won't be a "boombox"... He's going to be a Satellite truck. the rumor was a play on words.

    A Satellite and a pickup truck... He'll be a Satellite truck..

    It's amazing what you can figure out if you just use your brain once in a while

    Just how it would rock?

    "Megatron, can you cary me to the city, cause, uh, you know..."

    "Megatron, can i stay out of fight, cause i am so small, and uh, you know..."

    YEAH, that would totaly rock... And before you say, that Frenzy was small to, he was always small.

  17. How about... get this...

    A pickup truck stuck in orbit.

    So technically, Soundwave would be a satellite. Not a very good one though. HAHAHA

    Space Shuttle: "Mission Control, we are spotting what appears to be... a... pickup truck. In orbit. No, we didn't put helium into the oxygen supply again."

    good one !


    Im in Australia so... I dont mind who has it first..

    its cheaper to go to Singapore Than L.A anyways (for me)

  19. I actually hoped that Movie World in Australia would do something TF related. It would be great to have replicas of the vehicles in the park, and I imagined a motion simulator type ride.

    Thanks, I just pretty much died when I logged on to this. I live in South Central L.A., if I have to work extra hard for a ticket to Singapore, I'll do just that. What I'm really hoping for is for it to be in 4D, where it looks like you're 2 feet from the fight itself, possibly getting to ride in Bumblebee, Green screen pictures with the robots at a place nearby, and of course (like someone else already said) THE FUCKING GIFTSHOP! And it better have some sort of roller coaster section to it (PERHAPS A SPACE BRIDGE TELEPORTATION![WITH SHOCKWAVE!!!!!]).

  21. Forgot to comment on this one last month, so I'll post now...

    OMFG.

    I am SO there for ALL these new theme parks, even if I have to go through hellish trips around the globe to do so.

    The sheer thought of just being able to SEE and EXPERIENCE the action up close is enough to leave me breathless.

    And I don't doubt for a second that myself and all the other fangirls from various TF forums will be draping ourselves shamelessly all over the alt modes and whatever robots we can get that close to.

    Don't even ASK how we'd decimate the fragging gift shop, lol.
