Universal Orlando has announced that the highly anticipated blockbuster attraction Transformers: The Ride – 3D will officially open on Thursday, June 20, 2013.
Universal also 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.
Transformers: The Ride – 3D is an action-packed ride experience that pushes the limits of technology to place guests in the middle of a larger-than-life battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons. The ride was created under license from Hasbro, Inc. and is based on its iconic Transformers brand.[ Also Visit: Robojit and the Sand Planet – Global Entertainment Project ]
In anticipation of the Transformers’ brand 30th anniversary in 2014, the “Fan Built Bot” Poll will run through May 5th on Transformers.com/vote. (Read: Hasbro Invites You to Create Transformers)
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.
