    Dozen guests evacuated from Universal's Transformers ride

    By Dewayne Bevil, Orlando Sentinel
    12:37 p.m. EDT, July 15, 2014


    Orlando Fire Department members removed 12 people from the Transformers ride at Universal Studios this morning.

    An OFD spokesman said the ride had malfunctioned but no fire was involved. There were no injuries, he said..

    Guests were removed from the ride vehicle individually via safety harness and rope. They then climbed down a ladder, the spokesman said. The rescue took about 16 minutes, he said.

    Transformers: The Ride — 3D debuted at the park last summer. The attraction, based on characters from the "Transformers" movie series, simulates a high-speed urban battle between large robots.

    Mind you, of all places I could get stuck, in an attractions with giant warring robots isn't a bad choice.
