Transformers Ride is Alive and Still Under Construction; Bay Now On Board
By bwbm on Sunday, June 13, 2010
West Coaster, through its pictorial of Universal Studios Hollywood, has confirmed that the Transformers ride is alive and well and is currently under construction.
The ride was announced in October of 2008 but other than Transformers Director Michael Bay voicing opposition over the ride, any further news has been absent.
The images posted by West Coaster provide our first looks at the Transformers ride being under construction but at a very early stage, showing Bumblebee and the Transformers logo on the front.
Despite Mr. Bay's previous opposition of the ride, Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative, said that Mr. Bay is now on board.
Mr. Woodbury revealed this while being interviewed for the documentary on the making of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the newest theme park at the Universal Studios Orlando. He revealed that Universal attempts to make the best experience with the rides and Mr. Bay is collaborating to help them do just that.
The documentary video is available on Hulu.com and is embedded below. Mr. Woodbury makes the remark at about 8:16 in the video below, which starts at the beginning of his remarks on the subject. Be sure to stick through the commercial.
