After months of speculation, Universal Orlando today announced an official opening of June 20, 2013 for their new 3-D Transformers attraction. A clone of the popular attraction already operating at the Hollywood and Singapore parks, Transformers brings the iconic 1980s robot toys (as cinematically reinterpreted by director Michael Bay) to life through a 3-D dark ride/simulator similar to Islands of Adventure's acclaimed Spider-Man ride.
Transformers can be found in the Universal Studios Florida park in a newly-constructed building on the site of the old Murder She Wrote and Hercules & Xena shows. The new ride's gift shop is currently open, and meet & greets with the attraction's Autobot and Decepticon stars are being held daily outside the attraction. Look of unannounced soft openings in the weeks before next month's grand opening.
