Visiting a theme park in order to experience the fabulous rides has certainly changed over the years with rides becoming more and more adventurous and exciting. It isn't simply a case of riding round and round or up and down anymore as we are twisted, turned,dropped and generally scared out of our wits as we travel at break neck speeds and climb the dizzy heights of adventurous rides. Further advancements mean that 3D rides are now offered at many of the world's theme parks, so, what are they and where can they be found? Let's take a look!
Transformers The Ride 3D
Transformers The Ride 3D can be found at Universal Florida and is so realistic that riders feel they are actually engaging with the fabulous Transformers and their evil enemy the Decepticons all in a wondrous universe that sends the imagination into complete overdrive!
Transformers fans will find this ride a dream as what could be better than to fight alongside Optimus Prime and his fellow Autobots in order to defeat the evil decepticons. The 3D effects are breathtaking, while complete with stunning audio fans will immerse themselves into this imaginary world where heroes come to life and enemies are destroyed.
Despicable Me Minion Mayhem
Another fabulous 3D ride from Universal, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem is based on the lovable characters from The Despicable Me movies. Riders will join Gru and all his friends on a hilarious journey as you become a Minion in order to help them achieve their goal.
This ride takes a whole host of twists and turns before reaching Gru's laboratory, while the ride culminates in a great dance party at the end, its a whole lot of fun! One thing that makes the ride seem even more real is the fact that the voices from the movie are used in the ride, meaning those who are familiar with the characters in the movie will feel at home on the ride too. Even standing in the queue is really entertaining while waiting to board Despicable Me Minion Mayhem.
Terminator 2: 3D
The Terminator movies have been very popular from the very first movie released back in 1984 right through to the latest offering that will be Terminator 5. Those immortal words"I'll be back" are immediately recognisable to fans worldwide, while Arnold Schwarzenegger played the part of the original evil terminator through to its recreation as a good terminator with others taking over the evil terminator role alongside.
Now Terminator the 3D ride is here and fans can be transported into the eerie world of The Terminator in all his vivid glory. Riders will join forces with The Terminator to battle against and defeat evil cyborgs who are hell bent on destruction.
The apocalyse is nigh and it's up to you to defend the world as you whizz past all kinds of objects while avoiding plasma blasts, its fantastic fun plus really thrilling too. The special effects are marvellous along with characters that you can actually touch but watch out as they will touch you back!

The Time Machine at Futuroscope
The Time Machine is a superb 3D ride where The Raving Rabbids, who are weird looking robots, take you on a journey through time that you will never forget. Visitors will be invited on board a futuristic train, asked to put on their 3D glasses then are whisked away through a history filled with spectacular special effects.
