Default Updates on US Universal Studios Ride & Ads

Another video teaser for the American Transformers Ride. It's saying that it involves Megatron... so not sure if it is set between TF1 & TF2 (because it focusses on the Cube Shard), or between TF2 & TF3 (because Megatron is around).

The Annual American Superbowl will feature a new 30-second commercial for the Ride next weekend, and a short clip from it was released by Universal.

And for the Americans, there's a chance to win a trip to Universal Studios/NEST Command.
The main promo site with the competition is called PrepareForBattle.com

The Ride is scheduled to open end of May.

Sorry, I mustn't have properly copied the link for the Universal clip. It's fixed now.

And updated since yesterday...
A 40 second clip from Optimus Prime.

And the PrepareForBattle Website goes live (for Americans to compete for the big prize, but non-Americans should be able to have a look around as well to view the various promo videos and info).

Universal Studios have done up a fake (promo) video that looks like a couple "kids" sneaking into the yet-to-be-opened Transformers ride at the Hollywood themepark. You get to see some interesting shots of what the ride entails (being a ride on a track, instead of a fixed ride that moves in front of a big screen & props). There's even a glimpse of a Gen1 Bumblebee...

Another promo video for the ride, in the theme of the ride's story.

As with most theme-park rides, the annual pass holders for Universal Studios have been invited to a sneak-peak/test-run of the ride on May 4-6. It's the weekend after BotCon, and it opens to the public by the end of May.

I plan on going on this ride in July so hopefully I can share my first hand experience.

To start hyping up the regulars at Universal Studios for the May 25th opening of the TFs ride, someone has been walking around the themepark in a giant Optimus outfit.

The advance opening/testing is this weekend for annual pass holders.
