Stealing Cars Land's Thunder - Transformers 3D
While all of us anxiously await the grand reopening of Disney California Adventure v2.0 with its highly anticipated Radiator Springs Racers, the good folks up the road at Universal Studios Hollywood may have stolen a bit of Disney's thunder by giving previews of its new and highly anticipated Transformers The Ride 3D. Some press previews were given yesterday with soft openings occuring throughout the next month ahead of its May 25 grand opening and the reports are the attraction is nothing short of spectacular on every level, imagination, thrills, detail, and everything else. It is jaw-dropping according to everyone who has had the opportunity to experience it. While Cars Land, Buena Vista Street, and everything else will be classic Disney though and through, and Radiator Springs Racers will be a great ride experience, Universal it appears has delivered something that Disney hasn't given us for years - a bad-ass ride that is part 3D motion simulator and part dark ride.
The great videographer asianjma123 took a ride on Transformers 3D and while the effects cannot be truly appreciated, his video walk through the attraction does give a great glimpse of how stunning this ride is. Enjoy.
