If you still haven't gone on that fancy "Back to the Future" ride at Universal Studios you better hurry up!
The Simpsons are coming to town and pushing Marty and Doc into the past for good!
After thrilling over 61 million visitors with wild rides across "the space-time continuum," the ground-breaking "Back to the Future – The Ride" attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood will soar into the future for the very last time on Labor Day, September 3, 2007. Fans of the attraction will also have an opportunity to take the last ride and drive off as the owner of one of the stainless steel 1981 DeLoreans that served as inspiration for Doc Brown's flux capacitor-equipped time machines.
"Back to the Future – The Ride" blends breakthrough simulator technology with a cutting-edge Omni-max 70mm film to create a total sensory experience. A signature attraction at "The Entertainment Capital of L.A." for over 14 years, the ride is being closed to make way for the introduction of a new thrill ride based on the enormously popular "The Simpsons" TV series and movie. The Simpsons ride is slated to debut in Spring 2008.
"Back to the Future – The Ride" was introduced in 1993 as a continuation of the Oscar®-winning blockbuster "Back to the Future" film trilogy directed by Robert Zemeckis and executive produced by Steven Spielberg for Universal Pictures. The attraction features an eight-seat convertible DeLorean Time Travel Vehicle that elevates the theme park ride experience to an unprecedented level of detail, beginning with an artfully staged queue line experience that helps set up the ride's narrative storyline.
