Following yesterday’s Decepticon invasion in downtown Orlando, Universal Orlando has called on the Autobots to arrive on a specific date with the announcement that Transformers: The Ride 3D will open on June 20, 2013.
That date was first plastered in giant letters early this morning across the Fairwinds Credit Union building, also sporting “damage” from this week’s larger-than-life reveal.

Universal later announced the date via social media outlets, encouraging fans to join the Autobots and register for a NEST ID to access video and photos before the ride debuts.
“Recruits” will be able to win prizes, including a trip to the attraction’s grand opening celebration.
Though the official opening date is still more than a month away, it’s highly likely the attraction will soft open sooner. Universal Studios Hollywood began soft openings of their version of the same ride more than a month in advance of their grand opening, which took place on May 24 last year:
Though Orlando’s opening is a little further into summer, there’s no doubt the Transformers will draw a lot of attention to Universal Studios Florida as soon as they roll out.
