"We broke the mold and have taken this ride to a new technological level in terms of blending seamless 3D," Michael Bay, director of the "Transformers" space-robot films and a consultant on the ride, said in a statement this week.

"'Transformers: The Ride -- 3D' is the perfect addition to Universal Orlando's thrilling theme park experiences," said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative.

"The ride has already proven to be a hit at our Hollywood and Singapore parks, and we're excited that Universal Orlando guests will soon be able to join the Autobots in the fight to save the world."
