King of the Theme Park Graveyard: Back to the Future
Written by Robert Niles
Congratulations to our "King of the Theme Park Graveyard" tournament winner:Tweet
Back to the Future (Universal Studios Florida and Hollywood)
Just closed last year, these attractions, based on the popular Michael J. Fox movies, placed you in eight-passenger flight simulators, made up to look like the film's DeLorean time machines. You "flew" in front of a massive, Imax-style screen, as you chased bad guy Biff Tannen through time to reclaim his stolen DeLorean.
Back to the Future cruised to the victory, in a tournament where the higher seed won ever contest. Readers nominated dozens of now-defunct theme park attractions for the tournament, and the 16 receiving the most nominations faced off in reader votes each day this week.
Thanks, again, to everyone who participated. Here's what coming up in the next week on Theme Park Insider:
