Transformers The Ride to open at Universal Studios Singapore

Transformers The Ride to open at Universal Studios Singapore



World's first theme park attraction based on movie franchise opens December 3.

AsiaOne


Come 3 December, Universal Studios Singapore will launch the world's first theme park attraction based on Hasbro's iconic Transformers brand.

Taking the Transformers movie franchise from reel to reality, this motion thrill ride will showcase the most advanced evolution of immersive theme park entertainment.

Transformers The Ride will celebrate its world premiere at an exclusive evening event on December . Michael Bay, director and executive producer of the immensely popular Transformers blockbuster movies who also served as the attraction's creative consultant, will be in attendance to help commemorate the occasion.

Mr. Michael Bay said: "I am very excited about the debut of this attraction at Universal Studios Singapore. Finally, Transformers fans will not only have the chance to watch the Autobots battle the Decepticons on screen; they'll actually be part of the action."

The breakthrough attraction will feature 12 scenes, comprising sets blended seamlessly with hyper-realistic 3-D digital media and special effects to bring tactile realism to every moment.

Guests will be transported onboard advanced motion-based ride vehicles into the Transformers universe, and partake in the ultimate 3D battle against the Decepticons right alongside the Autobots.

Enlisted as NEST recruits, guests are tasked to help the Autobots protect a remaining shard of the ALLSPARK – a powerful energy cube that gives life to the Transformers. As the Decepticons attack the facility in a bid to obtain the shard, guests will be introduced to a new Autobot – EVAC – created exclusively for the ride.

New to the Autobots family, EVAC is a stealth transportation Autobot stationed on Earth designed to transport personnel and classified materials at hyper speeds. For the ride, park guests will board EVAC and begin the ride of their lives, zipping through subway tunnels, down city streets and across rooftops, with the Decepticons hot on their heels.

Park guests, especially fans of Transformers, will be thrilled as they come face-to-face – and be transported – by an Autobot. This epic ride experience will allow guests the opportunity to truly "Ride The Movie".

Special year-end holiday packages for Universal Studios Singapore will be rolled out through the Resorts World Sentosa website and authorized travel agents.

Guests signing up for these special packages will receive a Transformers The Ride commemorative souvenir and express entry to the attraction. More details will be available at www.rwsentosa.com.

Universal Studios ready to unveil Transformers 3D ride

Universal Studios ready to unveil Transformers 3D ride

By Hoe Yeen Nie
Posted: 19 November 2011 1748 hrs


SINGAPORE: After more than two months of non-stop tests, Universal Studios Singapore is finally ready to unveil its multi-million dollar Transformers 3D ride on December 3.

Planning for the Transformers 3D ride took over four years, even before Universal Studios Singapore was built.

Among its firsts is a new Autobot called EVAC, specially created for the ride.

What makes the ride unique is that it not only is the first Transformers ride in the world, the technology it employs far surpasses what has previously been done on simulator rides, combining HD-quality images, realistic special effects and a roving motion simulator.

John Hallenbeck, vice president of park operations at Universal Studios Singapore, said: "We're looking to definitely have people walk in the door, and when they get off the attraction, to be blown away. I've been in this business for a long time and this by far is one of the best attractions we've ever developed."

The ride has just received its licence and Universal Studios Singapore will open it to the public for a few hours each day in the run-up to its official opening.

Transformers ride suffers disruption on opening day

Transformers ride suffers disruption on opening day
By Jeanette Tan | Yahoo! Newsroom

After a successful launch on Friday night, Transformers: The Ride experienced a technical delay on Saturday afternoon.

When contacted, a spokesperson from Resorts World Sentosa told Yahoo! Singapore that the "brief technical delay" occurred around 2:45pm and the ride resumed normal operations at Universal Studios Singapore (USS) about 45 minutes later.

"Guests in the queue at the time were asked to exit and enjoy our other attractions while the cause of the delay was assessed," he said. No guests were in danger or injured when the disruption occurred, he added.

The spokesperson declined to reveal the reasons for the 45-minute disruption, although Yahoo! Singapore understands it was not a safety issue.

“This is a highly technological ride and we have been pleased with its reliability,” said the spokesperson. “We look forward to welcoming even more guests who wish to be part of the ultimate 3D battle.”

According to The Sunday Times, which first reported the glitch, visitors had started queuing for the ride outside USS at 9am, an hour before it opened. By 11am, the waiting time for the highly-anticipated ride was up to two-and-a-half hours.

Other rides at USS have also previously encountered problems. The Battlestar Galactica duelling rollercoaster ride faced safety concerns and was closed for nearly a year, while the Madagascar: A Crate Adventure ride was closed for 20 minutes after a guest exited in the wrong direction.

The Transformers ride is the first in the world that is based on the Transformers trilogy of movies.

Apart from visuals and a complex track system, the ride also includes tangible effects, with visitors feeling water, heat and wind while on it.

Transformers director Michael Bay worked as a creative consultant on the ride, while Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light and Magic, the same company that worked with Bay on the three movies, handled motion graphics and special effects.

Another identical Transformers ride will be opened in Universal Studios Hollywood by May next year.
