Actually, no. Transformers opened in Hollywood first and then eventually it opened in Orlando.

Actually Transformers opened in Orlando first then in Hollywood....

I'd just like to point out that Soundstage 44 wasn't "converted" to hold Transformers, it was completely demolished.

The reason Transformers opened so quickly was because it was a clone of the ride at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Much easier to make a clone than an entirely new ride concept.

Not sure the reasoning behind some of the latest decisions they are making. They should have made Allah Gardens like a museum to the park. Would to see Twister stay before anything to do with Jimmy Fallon comes there. No offense and sure some would disagree with me but, I hate the shows. Need more good rides. What about The Fast and Furious ride? Better yet, expand on Harry Potter. Both parks could do this. There is so much more you could do with it. This would be awesome. Keep in mind, this is really the best part of either parks and it would justify the price increases.

May I posit that the reason why Transformers took way less time to build than Kong is because Transformers uses the same ride system and almost the same layout as Spider Man. So Universal had a big head start by not needing to develop a brand new ride system and track.

For those of us who remember the Ghostbusters attraction that occupied the Twister space back in the early 90s, the ceiling in that building is very tall!

May as well keep twister that sounds incredibly stupid to do
Just put a reboot of ghostbusters if you have to
But seriously nothing wrong with twister SMH
