Word on Orlando United Forums is that the ride is set to open June 20th, with soft openings in the beginning of June. Not sure how accurate this is, though it seems many are living by it over there.

I was hoping for a mid-May soft opening. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm at about 99.7% sure. I think we will hear about some soft openings before Memorial Day, but I'm just guessing.

One of the skyscrapers facing I-4 in downtown Irlando has a huge Megatron shaped decal on the side of it this morning, only got a quick glimpse. But there was some sort of announcement with it. It wasn't there yesterday, if anyone drives by downtown orlando on I-4 look towards the Fairwinds building. It wasn't finished but it's definitely going up (The rain is probably slowing them down).

Edit: found an article about it http://www.thedailycity.com/2013/04/...%2B+Culture%29

I think that's too early...end of May or the first part of June is more like it.

My first trip to Universal is scheduled June 7-9 as part of a 10 day "Orlando but not Disney" trip. My son is a huge Transformers fan (as is his dad ) so I hope to catch a soft opening that weekend...
