Lower Lot

Dark ride

Opening Date:
May 25, 2012

Installed at Universal Studios Hollywood in 2012, Transformers: The Ride - 3D replaced the shuttered Backdraft attraction in the Lower Lot. It reuses the same dark ride system employed by The Amazing Adventures of Spider Man at Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure, combining real-world sets and effects with 3-D movie footage.

The plot of Transformers The Ride - 3D is a natural follow-up to the first three films in Michael Bay's Transformers series, rather than based on them directly. Riders are placed into the middle of the movies' war between the human-friendly Autobots and their Decepticon enemies. As in the films (and the earlier toys and cartoons), the robots "transform" into cars, planes, tanks and other vehicles.
