Transformers: The Ride - 3D to open June 20 at Universal Orlando

Get ready for an explosive summer when Transformers: The Ride - 3D opens at Universal Orlando. The resort announced today that the official opening will be June 20.

In preparation for the big event, Universal also launched an all-new "Join the Resistance" Facebook experience to prepare fans for the battle they'll experience on the mega-attraction. "Recruits" can create their very own NEST IDs, train for battle, access exclusive photos and video and win prizes -- including a trip to the attraction's grand opening celebration on June 20.

According to the press release, Transformers: The Ride - 3D is a mind-blowing, action-packed ride experience that pushes the limits of technology to place guests in the middle of a larger-than-life battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons.

The battle begins when guests enter the NEST facility - the headquarters for the government operation that partners with the Autobots to protect Earth from the Decepticons. While inside, they are recruited to help protect the AllSpark - a powerful energy source that would allow the Decepticons to destroy the planet. Guests board EVAC - an Autobot created exclusively for the attraction - to transport the AllSpark to safety. But the Decepticons are in close pursuit.
