  • Universal Studios Florida - No Transformers For You

    It was quickly pointed out that there is no Transformers project in the works for Universal Orlando, due to the fact that Transformers will re-use the basic Spiderman ride system so there no point. It seems Michael Bay was simply visiting the park to learn and check out the amazing Spiderman ride system first hand to get a better idea of how it will be used to create the Transformer rides for USS and USH. So in short... “No Transformers For You!” (and somewhere... a fanboy begins to cry tears of sadness...) - A little news picked up from Screamscape.

    Well while I will say Universal isn't clever enough to use the franchise on a different kind of attraction (I mean just look how the Mummy franchise has been translated as the same crappy ride 3 and soon to be 4 times over)...there always is the possibility that they could do something different for transformers.

    Just saying...they pull a fast one on us and think outside the box.

        Ok I rode Mummy for the first time today and LOVED it (it wasn't open yet last time I had visited Universal, which was in February 2003 or 2004... they were still putting it in then). I loved it so much I went right back on it (did both times via the single rider line). I would have done a 3rd or even 4th ride if I wasn't dealing with the BF feeling dizzy & nauseated (the Simpsons Ride did a number on him earlier) and we had to find some Advil for him to help his head. I've heard the Mummy in California is terrible and pales in comparison to the one in Orlando. I only have Orlando to go by, but I really enjoyed it.

          Where is the 3rd Revenge of the Mummy ride? Have you ridden Orlando and Hollywoods? They're VERY, VERY different rides- they share a Premier Rides coaster system, and not much else.

              Universal Singapore hasn't opened yet, and it's version of Revenge of the Mummy is already a "crappy ride"?

                USF's Revenge of the Mummy is FAR from a "crappy ride". USH's is of course quite a crappy ride.

                  Boooo hooo for florida!

                  You know what, I'm perfectly okay with Orlando not getting a Transformers ride. That place already has a lot more going for it than hollywood. There's so many duplicate rides already that it's great that hollywood will get something unique for a change. Every ride at Hollywood, you can find elsewhere,with the exception of the tram lot tour.

                  I don't think Californians are exactly crying that they never got a spider-man ride or a harry potter land. Inside, they feel that it's a bummer that Universal Hollywood was built on such a small space, but that's all there is to it.

                  Florida, enjoy your Men in Black, Harry Potter, E.T., better Mummy coaster, Spider-Man, etc etc.

                        I've only ever ridden The Mummy in Florida, but its simply one of my favorite rides in all of Orlando. Its a perfect mix of dark ride and thrill ride. It has a few flaws, but nothing that makes it crappy. The only crappy thing about it is that it replaced Kong.

                          I'm also glad this is only going to hollywood in the states. USH need's some unique rides. 2011 is gonna be be a great year with Mermaid opening at DCA and Transformers opening at USH. Cant WAIT!!!!

                            Oh ok, I was wondering how anyone could possibly not like Revenge of the Mummy, but I've only experienced the one in Orlando. Anyone who's only been on the Hollywood one should reserve judgement til they try Florida's version. It's like Indy crossed with Rock n' Roller Coaster, and with a better AA than Indy.

                              The Mummy at USF is a GREAT ride! It is one of my favorites and I agree that it is a perfect blend of coaster/dark ride.
