Ride Impression 1 - Share on Ovi

Universal Studios Singapore at Resorts World at Sentosa will get the first ever Transformers theme park attraction! Universal Parks & Resorts which manages all the Universal Studios, will be collaborating with Hasbro, DreamWorks, Transformers movie director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg to bring the spectacle and excitement of the Transformers to millions of theme park goers.

The attraction will fuse 3D-HD media, mega special effects and stunning robotics with a ride system that will transform perceptions of theme park experiences. The rides are scheduled to make their debuts in early 2011, first at Universal Studios Singapore and then at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Tan Hee Teck, Chief Executive Officer of Resorts World at Sentosa, the mega resort that is home to Universal Studios Singapore, says: "It is great that Asia will be the launch pad for the first Transformers attraction. Transformers was introduced in the United States in 1983 but traces its roots to Asia. Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron are familiar names to Asian audiences, who grew up with the robot toys and love the movie. When Transformers opens in Universal Studios Singapore in 2010, it will be the first of its kind in the world. We may see a surge of Transformers mania."

Resorts World at Sentosa is a 49-hectare integrated resort on Singapore's holiday island of Sentosa. When completed in early 2010, the S$6 billion resort will house six hotels, a casino, Universal Studios Singapore, The Marine Life Park, the Maritime Experiential Museum and the Equarius Water Park.
