    Re: Transformers the ride soft opening details

    As been mention in another thread, it appears that the ride will have daily soft opening all the way up to the official grand opening of Transformers the ride.

    It's recommended that you go on weekday or the early morning hours to avoid the long wait.

    Definitely go on Universal Studios Hollywood: Universal Studios Hollywood Wait Times and Showtimes to see if the ride is open when you go.

    Re: Transformers the ride soft opening details

    Yeah, for the most part, it seems to be pretty open, at least in the morning hours. But do keep in mind the definition of "soft" opening: they have the right to shut down the ride at any time, or not open it at all. So go with a tempered expectation, just in case.
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    Has someone noticed that the movements have been dampened a little bit?

    Keep in mind also, that over the next two weekends (the first two in May), you should definitly NOT go there expecting to ride unless you are an AP holder with a confirmed RSVP for the exclusive preview. This may only be for the weekend of the 4th, 5th and 6th.

    Could be, that would make sense. But it kind of took quite a bit away from the ride for me.

    Re: Transformers the ride soft opening details

    For me, I keep noticing the timing for the heat blast keeps changing. That's the main detail I see that I hope gets worked out.

    If the ride did get a bit dampened, I'm okay with it. I have to admit I got a bit queasy after the very first ride about a week ago, but am fine now. And I don't think it's really impacted the intensity of the ride any.

    In fact, today, the ride broke down about half-way through. We ended up continuing on, but missed a scene or two. To make up for it, when we exited, the staff told us a code word to use which would grant us access to the Gate A entrance to ride again. I thought that was a pretty nifty system! And no, I am not going to share the code word. Besides, I imagine it must change pretty frequently.
