    Uni Hollywood Construction Progress. Check out the Humongous Building Taking Shape.

    YouTube - UPDATE Transformers Ride coming to Universal Studios Hollywood in 2012

    The Transformers ride building is becoming of mammoth scale. In fact, the construction is coming along so well that i'm wondering if Uni might be ahead of schedule for their 2012 targeted opening time.

    Thanx for the current pix guys. The show building is coming along quite nicely! Again, i think they may well be ahead of schedule.

    Appreciate the advice Dlandclub. I should have had more sense than to post a month old video
    (probably two months since it was shot). It's difficult not to be heavily intrigued as to the ride that awesome building will house!

    Looking at all of the walls going up, it just makes me wonder how the indoor queue is going to look...

    It may even be the best ride in all of California when complete. As excited as we are about Radiator Springs Racers, the real race will be between Uni and Disney next year. We understand that Uni is in it to win it and wants to knock Disney off its feet. We shall have to wait and see if they succeed.

    Obviously, there is no way for Universal to compete with Disney on sheer size and volume of visitors, but they'd just like to be known as having the best theme park attraction.

    ^we will see as much as I think the ride will be very good, Carsland just seems like its going to blow universal's one ride out of the park. I mean Disneyland is building a whole land that is being themed....while Universal is getting a ride with theme on the inside but that's about it.

    But hey maybe they could make one amazing attraction that is better than a whole land....doubt ful but it could happen only time will tell.

    It will certainly be phenominally fabtastic to have two super headliner rides that will raise the bar on visual/motion-based immersive theme park rides, Dusty. Uni and Disney are creating unigue high tech rides with vigourously executed themes that will draw East Coast enthusiists and help make Uni Hollywood and Disneyland Resort national/international vacation destinations. I'm rooting for Tansformers to be just as successful a ride as Radiator Springs Racers, if not more so. Healthy competition is always a good thing.

    I doubt that Transformers will outperform the popular draw of guests more than the entirety of Cars Land (though not likely....still, like you say Jerrod, it's possibe). The odds are greater, though, that Transformers might give RSR a flat tire. We shall see when the fun times come in 2012!

    I have to agree with you here, Carsland and Radiator Springs Racers is more in line with something like Wizarding World, they are creating an entire world from a movie and trying to be as accurate as possible, its a total experience, whereas Transformers will probably be a great attraction but likely look like a studio lot building on the outside much like everything else at UNI Hollywood.

    In short, RSR and Transformers will be fantastic, but RSR will be hands down the winner next year.

    I always root for Disney and Walt's legacy, hoping that Disney's big multi-million dollar addition to DCA falls short of Universal's Transformers ride is something that I simply cannot do. Disney is trying VERY hard to put a top notch E ticket in DCA, something on this scale has not been seen since Indy, I hope it blows all of its competitors out of the water and encourages Bob Iger to invest more here at the Disneyland Resort. I couldn't care less how successful Universal is, they make cool rides but lack the heart,emotional connection, and the history Disney has. Something that Universal will NEVER have.

    Hope there will be some fun interactive elements in the queue.

    Hyper-immersive thematic lands bsed on a single movie is a modern age creative advancement that wasn't thought of by Walt and the Imagineers of his day.

    I see your point BuenaVista, and it's a good one. While Uni is in heated competition with Disney, Disney is trying to create a multy national vacation destination resort, the kind of which nobody in today's theme park industry has thought possibly for the West Coast, let alone California. As a West Coast residet, i take tremendous pride in Disney;s pursuit of the dream.

    Both Carsland and Transformers will give me a reason to leave my beloved Florida and visit the West Coast. I love unique attractions that give me a reason to travel! lol
