Well this TR is less spectacular than I expected, but with rain and only 20 minutes in the park this is how it turned out.The pictures are from closing day ,March 30th, and a few are from 2006 because of me not being able to ride yesterday.
I hope some of these pictures represent this great ride well.
The Back to the Future ride was always the one thing that I wanted to ride throughout my childhood. I didn't like roller coasters, I didn't like spinning rides, I just wanted to ride Back to the Future.
Luckily I got there in 2000 and got to ride it finally.
Sad to see it go, but I know that Universal will put in something cool in its place.
I'm honestly pretty pissed off at this ride. This is the ride that stopped my mom from going on nearly ANY ride. It was so rough and brutal she messed up her neck and now thinks that all rides are that crappy.
^^ At least you did get her on Everest last year. While I liked the ride when it first opened, it was rare that I rode it these past few years. I am looking foward to the new attraction that will take its place.
I never rode this version. If it sucks as much as the Hollywood version, then it surely deserves to die. Simulators aren't great to begin with, but this one is just awful. The philosophy seemed to be, "if we jerk the rider around enough they'll be stunned into thinking that they're following along with the film".
What I don't understand is why they aren't removing the Hollywood installation first. It's the crappy Hollywood park that is desperate for great new attractions, not Orlando.
During the past few month's of BTTF's life, the ride looked pretty bad. Paint was peeling in the queue, the screens in the DeLoreans had bad screens, etc. The whole ride was on its last legs and seemed to be held together with tape and gum. I knew it would close soon when I rode it a few months ago, but I didn't know when RIP day would be. I'm kind of sad to see it go, as I went to USF many years ago just because of this ride. Nostagila aside, I'm glad to see something new come to USF and replace a rickey-old ride. I hope it will be Law and Order: The Ride, I mean, the Simpsons.
Let us not forget that perhaps other than T2, BTTF contained the most torturous set of pre-shows that you had to experience before actually getting to the ride. Which was pretty damn crappy anyway. Yeah, I won't miss this attraction.
