I heard the ride was really good. I saw the POV and Universal accomplished trying to make you part of the action.

Would like more info please.

I've heard lots of good things about this ride but I've never known what it's meant to be. It does sound good though.

I have placed more information + a POV in a spoiler (Because it will spoil the ride)

Spoiler:
POV

Information:
Ride vehicles
Transformers: The Ride utilises several ride vehicles. Each ride vehicle seats twelve riders in three rows of four. Each row of riders is restrained by a single lapbar. The ride vehicles are modelled after an Autobot named Evac.
Each vehicle is mounted to a track-roaming platform that provides the forward motion to move the vehicle through each show scene. The vehicle is capable of moving 360 degrees and different angles thanks to the yaw motor and the six DOF motors attaching it to the platform. Each vehicle is outfitted with a motor that controls the right side door where guests board and dismount the ride vehicle.

Ride
The ride begins with EVAC moving out of the loading station and making a turn. The vehicle approaches the first 3D screen which depicts Ravage grabbing the canister containing the AllSpark. EVAC spins 180° to face the second screen where Bumblebee is fighting Sideways for the AllSpark which ends up in EVAC's possession. EVAC reverses into one of two elevator shafts which ascend to the second level of the attraction. During the ascent Optimus Prime battles Megatron and Grindor. Megatron grabs EVAC and the two enter a struggle which concludes with Megatron breaking a water pipe which sprays riders with water. EVAC enters a dead end pathway before reversing and turning to face another 3D screen which shows Megatron firing a missile at EVAC. Hot air and fog generate the illusion of an explosion. EVAC then heads through the hole in a building which was caused by the explosion. Inside lies Devastator who is attempting to suck everything out of the building. EVAC manages to reverse and escape the suction. Here the Autobot Sideswipe provides assistance in battling against the Decepticon Bonecrusher. Devastator returns to the scene alongside Starscream. EVAC manages to escape from Devastator a second time but Starscream is able to grab EVAC and throw it across several city blocks before coming to a stop in a construction site, smashing into some drums. These drums release clouds of fog resulting in EVAC asking if the riders are okay. Optimus Prime and Megatron continue their battle in the construction site as EVAC reverses away in an attempt to protect the AllSpark. Starscream appears for a second time but is destroyed by NEST helicopters. EVAC then returns to a second set of two elevators. During the descent to the ground floor, EVAC throws the AllSpark at Megatron causing both to freefall to the ground. Bumblebee saves EVAC from destruction before congratulating EVAC and the riders on their mission

I might go down to So Cal to ride it this summer. Since I really enjoy the Transformers series, I think this is the perfect ride for me and the state-of-the-art technology is amazing.

Since I now live in Southern California, I should get a Universal pass soon and ride this. Though, I'll probably wait until Potter invades the park.
