On 3 December 2011, Universal Studios Singapore will launch the worlds first theme park attraction based on Hasbros iconic Transformers brand.

Taking the Transformers movie franchise from reel to reality, the motion thrill ride will showcase some of the most advanced developments in immersive theme park entertainment.

Transformers The Ride will celebrate its world premiere at an exclusive evening event on 2 December. Michael Bay, director and executive producer of the Transformers blockbuster movies who also served as the attractions creative consultant, will be in attendance to help commemorate the occasion.

Mr. Bay said, I am very excited about the debut of this attraction at Universal Studios Singapore. Finally, Transformers fans will not only have the chance to watch the Autobots battle the Deceptions on screen; theyll actually be part of the action.

The attraction will feature 12 scenes, comprising sets blended seamlessly with hyper-realistic 3-D digital media and special effects to bring tactile realism to every moment. Guests will be transported onboard advanced motion-based ride vehicles into the Transformers universe to partake in the ultimate 3D battle against the Deceptions right alongside the Autobots.

Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) is confident that Transformers The Ride will raise the bar for immersive ride experiences anywhere in the world and will be a game changer for theme park attractions, well-suited for the entire family.

Mr. Tan Hee Teck, CEO of Resorts World Sentosa, said, The world debut of Transformers The Ride at Universal Studios Singapore exemplifies how Resorts World Sentosa has continued to build on its leading reputation as the number one destination resort in Asia. Hence, we are most thrilled to bring the milestone launch of this franchise here. Resorts World Sentosa transformed Singapore as its first integrated resort in 2010, and we will continue to bring in game changing attractions to the region.

Enlisted as Nest recruits, guests are tasked to help the Autobots protect a remaining shard of the Allspark a powerful energy cube that gives life to the Transformers. As the Deceptions attack the facility in a bid to obtain the shard, guests will be introduced to a new Autobot Evac created exclusively for the ride.

Evac is a stealth transportation Autobot stationed on Earth designed to transport personnel and classified materials at hyper speeds. For the ride, park guests will board Evac and begin the ride, zipping through subway tunnels, down city streets and across rooftops, with the Deceptions hot on their heels.

Special year-end holiday packages for Universal Studios Singapore will be rolled out through the Resorts World Sentosa website and authorized travel agents. Guests signing up for these special packages will receive a Transformers The Ride commemorative souvenir and express entry to the attraction.
