    We've been talking about it here.

    The plan is to have open daily for a few hours here and there, but as Dustysage, you never know. Don't show up expecting to ride it. Just show up and be surprised when it is open!

    I'll be seeing you guys around the park soon! Come visit me!
    Disneyland and Haunted Mansion fan boy!

    The current wait time is only 25 min!

    Too bad the Decepticons are trapping me at work and I'm not able to go.

    I live about ten minutes away from USH but I can't afford a pass yet.

    The very day I get a job, I'll probably quickly change and head over there first thing to ride it. Saw a video of the queue, which is of course excellent. Universal has a knack at making waits entertaining.

    Well whats interesting is the ride wait times seem to fluctuate from 10, 15, and then 20 minutes, then back down to 15, 10, and so on and so forth... Honestly, the wait time really did seem more like 5 - 8 minutes at most. I think the employees may have been stressed and getting used to their jobs so perhaps some mistakes were made. Could also be as glitch of some sort but I'm not really sure how Uni determines wait times anyway. Either way, WELL worth the wait.

    PS. Before you go to Uni, you can check USHWaitTimes.com to see if Transformers will be open that day. Try and arrive as soon as possible because it IS subject to change although it was open the entire day this time. But like I said, the ride seems to be prone to malfunctioning so while the work out the kinks, its possible for it to close.

    The problem with Universal Hollywood is that you have the lower lot and the upper lot. There'll be a point in the day where everyone that was hanging in the upper lot descends to the lower lot and that would create surge of people. Then it'll die down a bit and then it'll spike again.

    Plus today was a weekday and not everyone knew about the Transformers ride making it pretty easy to hop on.

    Technically its not "open" but they have it running for guests. i asked my fellow employees and anyone outside of the park is not supposed to mention it and let guests find out when they get inside
