Transformers The Ride 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. It was the first major addition to Universal Studios Singapore after its March 2010 debut, opening in December 2011.
The plot of Transformers The Ride 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.
