Back to the Future - Closing Day
Written by Gareth H
As we all know, Back to the Future - the Ride, closed today after 16 years of entertaining, and inflicting pain, on thousands upon thousands of people.Tweet
I was there to see it close & all I can say is what a disappointment.
Universal Studios made no effort to remember this once great ride. There was No Marty, no Doc Brown. The only people there to recognise that this ride was closing were a hundred or so fans and some very local staff.
The only Media I saw, or in this case "Heard" make any mention of the closure was Orlando's O-Rock 105.9
There wern't even any notices in the park to let the guests know that today would be the last chance to get bumped "Back to the Future".... Only online did Universal pass on that today was the day.
Maybe it was kept low key because Universal are planning a re-launch of a new version of this classic? Only time will tell.
Well, goodbye Back to the Future, I hated you but I WILL miss you...
