Prove Your Allegiance on Transformers: The Ride 3D

Have you ever dreamed of being IN a Michael Bay movie?

Like, does being dropped into the middle of an action film and fully immersed in surround sound-drama sound like a good way to spend your vacation?

If you said yes, I agree! And that’s why I recommend you take time to check out the Universal Studios Orlando Transformers Ride.

That’s right, on this ride you won’t be flipped around or go upside down, but that doesn’t mean you won’t feel thrill and excitement every single second!
