    Transformers Themed Robocoaster Attraction

    Here's a neat idea for Universal Studios: A Transfomers themed robocoaster attraction. (NOTE: FORGET THE TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF LIMITED SPACE, I HAVE FURTHER IDEAS TO FIT EVERYTHING. I JUST DON'T WANT THE FURTHER DETAILED EXPLAINATIONS TO BORED READERS)

    If Universal can get theme park rights to Dreamworks' "Transformers" (I'm sure they can with their relationship with Steven Spielberg and USH already merchandising Transformers products), add the vehicles that were used in the film to the Studio Tram Tour's "Transportation Department" section.

    Then (at least for USH) convert the Lower Lot's lousy Panda Express/ Mummy's Tomb Shop/ Restrooms/ Lucy Tribute/ Backdraft queue block of land into an indoor facility for a Transformers attraction. Or inside the "Backdraft", "Special Effects Stages", and the 2 soundstages behind them. The robocoasters would appear like guests board regular cars ala Studio Tour's Fast & Furious. But as you drive through a Metropolitan city, you're attacked by Decepticons. Your vehicle TRANSFORMS into an Autobot and attack the Decepticons (either practical AAs and/or movie screens). Bringing destruction to the surroundings. Because of the uniqueness of the ride design, you can have the feeling of being knocked to the ground senseless and then having to get back up your feet. In the end, Autobots defeat the Decepticons. Megatron threatens you for the last time while Optimus Prime congrats you. You then transform back into vehicle mode and exit.

    I'd like the entrance to have a life-size Transformer (like at the world premiere) for photo ops. The facade and queue could probably be like the Hoover Dam scene in the movie or the Autobot's ship, The Ark. I figure each robocoaster could fit 4 people (2 seats for 2 rows). A neat effect to have come out of a Decepticon weapon would be a smoke ring at riders. And the transformer you're in wouldn't have to be stuck with a car mode, it could perhaps have the ability to fly... (hey, it's a theme park attraction, Terminator and Back to the Future bent the rules to their movies too...)

    What do you think? Again, forget the technical aspects of space, I think I figured that out already.

    EDIT: Actually, I wonder how close this would be to the Harry Potter attraction??? Or if this sounds a little too much like an alternate version of The Amazing Spider-Man.

    It's all up to Hasbro. They make ALL decisions with Transformers and GI JOE licensing as it is their property.

    This sound like a good idea if it were like the spiderman ride. I would rather see this than a spiderman clone. I dont know what you mean by robocoaster...do you mean a indoor coaster or a simulator ride like spiderman?

    You have a Disney park that doesn't hold it's attractions together with duct tape, so it evens out.
