New Transformers ride to open at Universal Orlando next summer

Optimus Prime and Bumblebee -- small
If you’ve been to Universal Studios Orlando in the last few months and wondered about the construction in the middle of the park, Universal’s Creative Studio announced Thursday that it’s a ride based on the Transformers movies. The ride, already operating at Universal Studios in Los Angeles and Singapore, will open in the summer of 2013. Read the full story here. Still no word on the promised expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter — or what on earth could possibly be under construction on the site of the former Jaws ride, next to Wizarding World.
