Universal Hollywood confirms last day for Back to the Future ride
Universal Studios Hollywood has announced the final day of operation for its Back to the Future ride
: Sept. 3, Labor Day in the U.S.
The ride will be replaced by the new Simpsons ride, which will open in Spring 2008.
The park also will be giving away a 1981 DeLorean as pat of the festivites on Labor Day to close the ride. Visitors can enter the drawing for the car at kiosks in the park.
While the DeLorean giveaway was news to me, park employees told me this when I visited in May. So since I live in KS I rode it twice since I knew it would my last time. One of the best rides ever in Universal IMHO.
Well, as a true Simpson's fan, how can I protest(unless it is going to be one of those horrible 3d attractions where you smell the electronics from the moving seats(AKA Spongebob & others)).
I know I'm not going to miss the ride. I always got a headache on it as it slammed my head into the headrest behind me. My husband flat refused to ride it after we sat in the back one time and he ended up with a bump on the back of his head.
Sorry to see any ride shut down, but... my neck has never recovered from the rides I took on it many years ago. Can't imagine what the ride is like now that it's on it's last legs... :-|
Chris, they did get rid of ET at USH. That's where Mummy is now.
Personally I liked BTTF.
Colin Chapman, were he around, would shiver at the very thought of such a prize.
