Optimus Prime is ready for battle at Universal Orlando!

Pack those bags for Orlando, and make sure you bring lots of sunscreen.

Life-Size Optimus Prime has graced the best theme park in the USA: Universal Orlando. Best in show for hotels, shopping, food and cool ways to get around (water gondolas!)

The park is preparing for their latest and greatest attraction: The new Life-Size Optimus Prime will do battle atop Universal Orlando Resort’s TRANSFORMERS: The Ride – 3D.

From Universal:


Optimus Prime is ready for battle – towering above the entrance to Universal Orlando Resort’s highly-anticipated, blockbuster attraction, TRANSFORMERS: The Ride – 3D. The addition of the authentically-sized leader of the Autobots Thursday morning, May 30, 2013 is one of the finishing touches to the attraction.

Optimus Prime stands guard at 28 feet tall and nearly nine tons, beckoning recruits to join the resistance against the invading Decepticons. The mind-blowing, action-packed thrill ride, which was constructed in record time, officially opens June 20 at Universal Studios Florida.
