The Geo Team Ride is an upcoming 3D motion-based steel roller coaster dark ride which was set to open at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort in July 4, 2017. It is going to be created by Universal Creative for the queue, pre-show area, ride, post-show area, and store, Blur Studio and Reel FX for 3D animation of the ride, and Film Roman for 2D animation of the pre-show and post-show cutscenes. The ride is based on the animated television series The Geo Team. It was first announced by Gabriel Garcia that the ride will open at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood on an open area of both Universal Studios parks in the United States.
The Geo Team Ride was collaborated on by the producers of the The Geo Team, and will use CGI animation of the ride provided by Blur Studio and Reel FX instead of the usual 2D animation, which will be used on pre-show and post-show cutscenes of the ride. Even though it's similar to The Simpsons Ride and Transformers: The Ride, The Geo Team Ride uses state of the art technology, including a new projection system, new hydraulics, and of course roller coaster tracks.
The ride itself is five minutes long but original footage for the ride can be seen in the queue, and there is also a pre-show video. In the ride, patrons are introduced to The Geo Team House, home of the famous superhero league The Geo Team. However, Sideshow Bob, the main antagonist of Fox's animated TV sitcom The Simpsons, created by Matt Groening, helped Gree Guy and his evil Gree Team escape from prison to get revenge on Geo Guy, the Geo Team, Homer Simpson, and the Simpsons family. At least most of the other characters from Greeny Phatom, Geo's World, and Despicable Me make an appearance, all voiced by their original actors. Along with the attraction is a gift shop modeled after the Geo Market, which will open in early 2018 after the ride was opened.
To enter the ride's queue area, visitors must walk through the Geo Team house, which leads inside to the hallway. While the riders are in the queue, various HD television monitors display clips from the Geo Team and Geo's World billed as moments from Geo Guy's past, as well as live animated footage from Geoville. Just before entering the pre-show area, they pass an unmanned kiosk where they pick up a pair of polarized 3D glasses called "3D GeoVision Goggles" for use during the main ride. The queue area ends with a sign instructing guests to wait for a short time before entering the fun room, where the Geo Team can spend some time having fun.
Pre-show cutscene 1Edit
While in the fun room, riders line-up into rows to wait for a confirmation from Geo Guy on a TV screen facing the riders. As Geo Guy appears in the TV screen, he says that the riders will be ready to go on a roller coaster in the Geo Team house backyard in just 5 minutes or so. But Little Guy appears whispering to Geo Guy that the Gree Team and Sideshow Bob had escaped prison once again. Little Guy was then dismissed as Geo Guy tells the riders that the Gree Team and Sideshow Bob had escaped prison once again, so it's up to Geo Guy, the Geo Team, and the Simpsons to stop their enemies once and for all, before it's too late. Geo Guy's TV signal was then interrupted by Gree Guy, as he said to the riders that he, the Gree Team, and Sideshow Bob will rule Geoville, but Sideshow Bob tells Gree Guy that they will take over the whole world, not just Geoville. Gree Guy then continues talking to the riders. He said to them that if the Geo Team and the Simpsons spoiled their plans, The Gree Team and Sideshow Bob will end up in jail. So, Sideshow Bob and Gree Guy let the passengers go back to the message from the Geo Team as the TV signal dissolves back into Geo Guy. He wants to know where was he before he got interrupted, but soon Geo Guy realized and tells Little Guy to lead the passengers into the Geo Team meeting room, where the Geo Team creates plans to stop the Gree Team once and for all.
Pre-show cutscene 2Edit
Riders are then ushered into the pre-flight "meeting" room by a Geo Team member. Here, Geo Guy leads the Geo Team and the Simpsons into a backstage area where Abraham Simpson, Maggie Simpson, Stuart the Minion, Jorge the Minion, Phil the Minion, Bob the Minion, and all of Gru's shortest minions were told not to ride due to certain safety restrictions including heart conditions, motion sickness, fear of not having escape, fear of being in closed or small spaces or rooms, fear of heights, or any other similar conditions, that were not recommended to ride. Grampa falls asleep while Bob and some of Gru's shortest minions took Maggie outside of the ride. While Phil waits in the backstage area, he then sneaks into a nuclear reactor room, causing him to grow larger and taller. Meanwhile, Geo Guy leads the Geo Team and the Simpsons into a ride room where he tells them to enjoy the ride, before Sideshow Bob and Gree Guy appeared. Gree Guy knocks Geo Guy out and tells the Geo Team and the Simpsons Family to enter the ride vehicle. Homer enters, followed by the rest of the Geo Team and the Simpsons family (except Grampa, Maggie, Staurt, and other Gru's shortest minions). Geo Guy, after being knocked out, enters the ride as well. Sideshow Bob, Gree Guy, and the Gree Team then tells the Geo Team, the Simpsons, and the riders, that they must watch a safety video from Little Guy, Dr. Beanson, Geo Guy and his family, and Gree Guy. The screen then displays a recap of the safety reminders while riders are ushered into the main ride room.
After the riders enter the ride vehicle, which was stylized as The Geo Car, Stuart appears on a TV screen in the ride cabin and tells the guests that they are with him. He then tells the riders to be quiet so he can study for a math test, because if he gets a C or higher, he will come back to the Geo Team house after the ride, but if he gets a D or an F, he will get kicked out of Gru's property, move into a different city, and start a fresh, new life.
