Transformers Opening Date

Starting the topic to dicuss some rumors about Transformers the ride.

It appears to be fairly well ahead of schedule, and may open on Memorial Day Weekend, with possible soft openings as early as the peak of spring break, very late March, April. (getting more likely as it nears the end of May)

If anyone is going then, you may get lucky and get to see it in preview.

We'll be there April 11-14. I'd be ecstatic if they were doing a soft opening by then.

That's probably a little too early...I don't think they are that ahead of schedule.

Soft openings are the best. We hit Harry Potter just right and we ended up getting bored with doing the rides over and over. Once in a lifetime.

Last night I booked our rooms at RPR (yay!) and I did them over the phone. While I was speaking to the man he mentioned it was a good time to have the unlimited express pass, what with Transformers being open when we go.... I just thought he was mistaken so I didn't say anything else! Now I'm so wishing I had asked him more about it!! Maybe the rumors are true! We are visiting June 17-22 btw. I SO hope it is!!! I have three boys that would FREAK if we got to ride it!!

I rode the one at Universal Hollywood this summer. It was awesome. We walked off, looked at each other with big grins, and ran back on again!

It is like Spiderman.

If you haven't been to Universal before, it is like a combination of Dinosaur and Star Tours. Your vehicle moves along a track and encounters different rooms with large screens and sets.

We'll be there again in the end of August so it should be open by then. I will make a prediction now. My husband and son will ride it no less than 10 times
