Published: May 3, 2014 at 12:25 PMI've been saying for a couple of years, ever since people started posted the wrong future date that Doc & Marty go to Hill Valley (it's Wednesday, October 21, 2015) that Universal needs to retheme the Courthouse Square for 2015 Hill Valley. It would be an expensive undertaking considering the pond that has to go in the middle.
BUT, if the above article comes true, I would probably purchase my first annual pass to USH.
This sounds like a great idea for the nighttime expansion of the Tram Tour. Having worked on the backlot numerous times, there is a different look and feel to that area once the sun has set. I was happy to see that HHN expanded to areas on the backlot in 2013.

Published: May 4, 2014 at 2:21 AMThis seems more like a pipe dream. Universal doesn't care about Back To The Future. If they did, they would have kept the ride. But here's hoping I'm wrong because this sounds awesome.
Published: May 4, 2014 at 4:03 PMSounds like the old Universal... spending millions to recreate something we've already seen from a much better viewpoint. Paying tribute to BTTF is a great idea, but SURPRISE US... involve us in the moment, twist the story, make our presence integral to whatever we're watching.
Published: May 4, 2014 at 6:13 PMIt takes a lot to get me out to SoCal, but I was a huge fan of the movies and I admit I miss the ride. If they can rebuild the set to the standards we expect and hope for, I don't see any reason I'd put my next trip off any longer.
I'm actually a little disappointed that I haven't heard anything regarding a special edition of the movie with updated graphics, special effects. Similar to the editions of Star Wars that everyone hates. But I thought it was a great idea, and some new effects, and updating of some key scenes would be awesome!
Published: May 4, 2014 at 8:39 PMThis idea is insanely awesome. That's when you know a franchise is legendary when the last movie came out 25 years ago and Universal is planning an attraction based on it.
Great report by the way. This is why I have visited this site for a decade now.
Published: May 5, 2014 at 10:17 AMThat would be a great idea! "Back To The Future" is my favorite movie of all time! I miss the old ride , but this would be pretty cool. To see where it was originally made, and to recreate the town of "Hill Valley" would be awesome. It's like you're watching the movie as they are making it. As Marty said: "Doc, this is heavy."

Published: May 5, 2014 at 8:08 PMPLEASE BRING THIS TO ORLANDO!!!!! WOW...I am just really overwhelmed with excitement over this. Please let it be true!!!!
Published: May 5, 2014 at 10:35 PM"PLEASE BRING THIS TO ORLANDO!!!!!"
That would be completely pointless. The scene was filmed at Universal Studios Hollywood and the sets are already standing. It would be an enormous cost for them to duplicate it in Florida.
