  • Back to the Future closing!

    I just read that Universal Studios Hollywood is closing Back to the Future: the Ride on Monday! Someone play Taps, quick!
    My mind won't rest
    and I don't sleep
    Not even in my dreams...

    Well, at least it isn't as bad as condition like USF's was when they shut down.
    My heart belongs to the one here on the West Coast than it does the East, and we will miss it dearly

          I'm fine with them closing the ride...if they replace it with an updated BttF ride, but sadly that aint gonna happen. Such a shame such a huge and fun film franchise will lose its place in themeparkdom, perhaps it will wash up on Disney's shores but I highly doubt that. If only

              Yes, updated would be a good idea. I just remember when they closed it in Florida and the press release or something said that kids today wouldn't know who Doc Brown is. I nearly lost my mind for several reasons:

              1. You just rereleased the series on DVD like a year ago!!!!!
              2. It's a classic film franchise, if the kids don't know, that's just sad.
              3. (My ultimate argument when Disney makes this claim) Yeah, and taking it out completely helps that problem! I mean, I didn't know anything about Tom and Huck, but when I read the two stories, I related because of the Frontierland attractions.

              It really comes down to my soapbox issue. Kids aren't getting basic knowledge they need, as a result the lack reference for anything more than 5 years old. A sign that the world is officially going to pot. Almost literally.

              sorry, this is making me mad. I was hoping to go before this happened.

                yep 2 days left then time travel is a thing of the past... except for in Japan...

                I wanted to try and go... but not sure if that will happen or not.

                  Are you serious?!

                  Another argument to make: they still have the Waterworld: A Sea War Stunt Spectacular... do they expect kids to know this movie? People actually want to see the movie after watching the show...

                  Another argument: Universal doesn't merchandise very well.

                      To be fair, my wife of 24 had no idea what BTTF (the movies) was until like 4 months ago when I re-re-re-bought the DVD set (for $44!, WTF is up with that!?).. she never wanted to go on the rides on either coast, because I mentioned the dinosaur scene, well, let's just say after riding JP...yeah, she didn't go on it.

                            Universal Studios is ever changing and must update to the current taste of the population. So welcome the Simpsons with open arms.

                              I met my wife at the employee party for BTTF in 1993 and we went this past weekend to see it in its final week. Very sad to see it go.
                              "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???
