Published: July 24, 2007 at 7:51 AMWhile 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.

It's sad to see it go. I think this was the first step away from the backlot tour wasn't it?
As we all know, anything with tomorrow or future in its' theme is bound to have a limited shelflife.
(I missed those bionics shows on the backlot tour years ago too).
At this point, most would probably ask "What's a delorean?"
Published: July 24, 2007 at 1:27 PMI 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.
Published: July 24, 2007 at 1:28 PMSorry 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... :-|
PS I'm an old lady of 56 and 3/4 years of age... :-0
The Delorean giveaway? Of course, I'll be there!! :-)

Published: July 25, 2007 at 2:08 AMPersonally I liked BTTF.
What they could have done is simply update and refurb the existing ride. Other than that I think the franchise is still valid. Perennial holiday re-runs of the movies pay testament to that.
I'm a Simpsons fan but my vote would have been to keep BTTF.
If those movies aren't future proof then what are ?
