'Back to the Future': Plans go back to the cutting room?
Written by Gareth H
Ah ha, I have some important information regarding the closure of Back to the Future at Universal Orlando.Tweet
After discussion with a Universal Studios Florida engineer (Will remain nameless) it has been made clear to me that the Simpsons Rumor is a diversion, apparently often used when a ride is to close.
The replacement for the ride, date of full closure not yet decided, is one of two things.
The first and least likely, is a BattleStar Gallactica ride. Although no details are available, it seems a viable option as the long running TV show is still current and still on Unversals "USA" channel.
The second option which I'd guess would be more popular, is what we'd all suggested, a major re-work of the current ride. All current equipment would be removed and the ride would be completely re-made, although keeping with the current style.
This of course is common among popular rides. Shrek will soon go through a change as a new film is due for release and the current 4D film is now dated (Go figure T2:3D)..
So would you accept an updated version of the ride with (If they can pull it off) aged charactors, or old footage???
