    Watching the ride from tower was a lot of fun.

      I went to USH for the first time this year and got on the ride and I enjoyed the smoke and the little private rooms and it was fun to see the other cars. I am sure I would have been more impressed if I got on it when it was brand new but it was fun but I prefer star tours.

      Now, I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic!

        I am glad I got to ride it once (in July, the day I did the Uni VIP tour).

          I went Sunday specifically to ride this one last time.

          BTTF has always been my favorite movie. I remember the first time I went to Orlando, and was so excited to find out they were having sneak previews of BTTF there! I figured since I was there the first week that the ride was open to the public in the US, I'd be there the last week it closed down in the US (albeit the other coast).

          It's sad to see such a great ride go. I really wish they would just clean it up and improve upon the current theme. Of course this was all in the cards for years now. Ever since they got ride of the BTTF giftstore, I knew this was coming.

          I got a bunch of pics on sunday. I was alittle mad, cuz when we got into the vehicle, I snapped a quick picture of the Flux Capacitor and the Time Display. The CM went "No, no pictures, put that away."

          Seriously? 24 hours till closing the ride forever, and you won't let me take a picture of the ride? Whatever, I got the photo anyway. And it wasn't like I was trying to take a picture of the movie (which like everyone was doing anyways).

          But yea, it was sad to know I'll never be able to ride it again. I hope when BTTF comes to Hi-Def, that they're smart and include the Ride video, plus all preshow videos, for nostalgia factor.

            1) Met my wife on BTTF.

            2) Watching the ride from the pit beneath all the ride vehicles.

            3) Watching the expression on all the riders faces from the control room. There were cameras behind the screen for each car. Pretty cool.
            "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." ???

              I will never forget this ride. I drove from Phoenix at 3:30 am so that I could experience the last day and travel through the space-time continuum for the last 17 or 18 times (I lost count after trip #10).

              The last day was incredibly special and I got to meet someone that actually worked on the theming of the USH version. He rode with me and some new friends and told us all sorts of cool stuff about the ride.

              BTTF Forever!

                R.I.P. BTTF!!!

                We enjoyed the ride since it first opened.

                Probably rode it at least a hundred times over the years.

                Four generations of our family enjoyed the ride. My 81 year old (at the time) grandfather, my mother and father, myself, my wife and our kids.

                We said our good-bye's last month. Since there are 6 of us, we asked the CM to let us have one vehicle to ourself, since it would be our last time. We took plenty of pics of the kids in the vehicle, and got a great group shot of all of us thanks to a kind CM that took the pic for us.

                We'll miss BTTF.

                Thanks for the memories!!!

                  I was told you can't take pictures because of copyrights... not really for your safety... yeah, whatever. The ride is closing, so you'll have all the copyrights you want for it!

                  Wonder if they changed the video at the park entrance, because I know for a fact they have video clips of the ride in that.

                  Totally agree about BTTF ride videos as bonus features. They're already at work making a video of the ride closure. Might as well go all out and put in a "Making of" the ride and pre-show & ride videos. That's already worth double dipping on the movie triology DVD set. YOU HEAR ME UNIVERSAL, YOU CHEAP CORPORATE PIGS!? Haha.

                  I bought the USH video souvenior "Ride the Movies" for some reason (I think it was dated 2000-ish??), anyways, I think I expected some "Behind the Scenes" of the attractions. But it was quite bare and more like an ad to a place you already visited... Anyways, they did have a couple behind-the-scenes footage of Terminator & BTTF, which was nice. But I rather would have liked to see more. Now all the offical USH souvenior you can get is the lousy picture booklet. They have a VHS in The Studio Warehouse store, but for other languages.

                  My last time riding BTTF, the CM who tells you to go straight, up, or down the levels was wearing a T2:3D shirt. So I asked him: "Is this Cyberdine or The Institute of Future Technology?"

                          I never got to ride it. The one time I did go to USH with my grandparents, we got down to it and got in line, but had to get out because my cousin got sick just feeling the floor vibrating. Kind of wish I had gone on now.

                            I worked Ride OPs on BTTF the week it opened and for 3 months after. IT was fun. Great people and memories.

                            Only thing I learned is that nothing should be shaken up like that unless it contains vodka.

                            RIP BTTF - it was your time....
