I have to say i loved back to the future and was really mad when i heard that it was being replaced by the simpsons. But after i rode the simpsons i had found a new favorite. The ride was so much clearer and smoother than BTF and was an overall fun, awesome ride. So even though i love the Back To The Future my vote goes to The simpsons!

Personally, I liked the Back to the Future series than I did the Simpson's, so the BTTF ride was always one of my favorites at the park.

The Simpsons Ride FTW :D

That's not a fair question because the technology that the Simpson's ride uses is far superior to the Back to the Future ride. I got to ride both and I know Back to the Future was a timeless classic for Universal Studios but it was time to go. I'm not a big fan of the Simpsons but I really did enjoy the ride. It was a good addition to Universal.

I never got a chance to ride BTTF, but did see a ride video. The Simpsons is much cleverer. As for the motion simulator, that technology continues to improve, so The Simpsons is probably the better of the two.

Back to the Future was better. It used to be my favorite ride of all-time. All the ride needed was a nice refurbishment and it would have been good to go for some more years. Man I miss that ride. I'm a huge Simpsons fan as well and the ride is also fun and a worthy replacement, but still nothing like the original.

Neither ride in my opinion because they're both rough. I've had my head banged against the side of the ride in the back seat several time when it was BTTF. I rode in the front on Simpsons.

I do however like the concept of both rides, now if they could only take the roughness out. it would be more enjoyable to me. But I must say, my 11 year old grandson loved the Simpson ride but never rode BTTF.

I loved Back to the Future. It was easily in my top five favorite Theme Park rides and a must do every time I was at Universal Studios. I've since been on the Simpsons a couple of times and I just don't get the same feeling of joy when I ride it as I did when I rode Back to the Future...maybe it's just nostalgia, or my love of the BTTF trilogy, but when I go to Universal now, where BTTF was a must ride every time, the Simpsons can easily be skipped without me feeling I've missed something.

I am going with BTTF as well! Its just a classic ride! I am suprised that Universal decided to take this out and ET at their Hollywood Park. It would be as if Disney took out Soarin and Peter Pan's Flight!

Wouldn't it be nice if Universal could have both the Simpsons and BTTF. I mean they could use one side(dome) for BTTF and the other for Simpsons. Instead of going to the far off year of 2015, they could easily fix the audio and visual and say we are going to the year 2050. AHH!!! I just want BTTF back.
