Back to the Future part of the past

Well, it looks like Back to the Future is closing in September. Kind of a classic, but I've never been a big simulator fan, so I don't mind much.

Apparently a new Simpson's ride will take its place (meh).

There's more here: http://www.bttf.com/


"Would you like to buy a photo of you boys enjoying the Line Ride?"

yeah - back to the future is now over 20 years old.
it's amazing how time goes by.
the kids of today will probably not even remember it
;(

airtime for everyone

Its sadd that it is closing, but it had a good run. It does need to be replaced ala kong, but the simpsons? I could think of a much better replacement than that.

what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Honestly, I'm thrilled. While I loved the movie, cars, etc in BTTF, I didn't know you could get beat up while riding a simulator until I rode that thing...OUCH!

As a Simpsons fan, I'm even more thrilled :)

That's a shame, I think the BTTF trilogy is classic, but like many say it is out-dated and had a good run, just with I could have rode it lol. Also a shame they are replacing it with something else thats out-dated. Not a fan of the simpsons and most I know say it's getting old/ tired by now. A major simpsons ride/ attraction seems like it would have fit more into the 90s. I guess with the movie coming out it might seem appropriate, but I think they could do much better. *** Edited 7/24/2006 10:31:50 PM UTC by P18***

Think this meant to coincide with the Simpsons movie at all? When is the replacement Simpsons ride supposed to open?

Who cares. That ride is like getting into an elevator full of heavyweight boxers intent on kicking each other's asses. No loss there.

Lord Gonchar, I believe they're aiming for the ride and movie to open with each other. Similar to what Disney just did with the Pirates.

Oh, I see. Sorry for the simple questions, I really had heard nothing about it until this post. (and I call myself a fan :) )

Here's how sick I am. We're currently looking at next year for a big Orlando vacation and I'd seriously consider pushing it back to late summer (as opposed to early summer) to catch this ride.

There making a simpsons movie? Goes to show you how much I know.

Gonchar: That much of a Simpsons fan? :) That's hardcore.

The ride in Hollywood isn't nearly as rough as it's Florida counterpart, but it feels so dated.

I wonder if it's a goner as well?

Heh, right?

Definite Simpsons fan, definite fan of rides/parks. The idea of missing something that fits my interests on so many levels by a mere month or so is potentially heartbreaking - especially knowing this will be the last trip to Orlando for many years.

I fully plan on keeping an ear open for confirmation and a timeline on this whole thing and if BTTF truly gets replaces by a Simpsons attraction and the whole thing has a time frame mirroring the movie release (July 27, 2007) then as it comes time to nail down the specifics of the trip over the winter, I will certainly look into a late July trip as opposed to a mid-June one.

Yeah, I suppose that is hardcore. :)

One of the few rides I've ever gotten off of and thought

"Wow. I hated that."

Never cared to ride it again - bring on the Simpsons.

So I guess I was the only one who liked the ride?

Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!
I think the ride is outdated and was boring (although the movies were great) however I do agree that there could be something much better than the simpsons. Although there are stil many fans of it, it does seem like somehting that will soon be outdated. I don't think they are looking far enough down the road.

Personally, I love just about everything about the BTTF universe... except riding BTTF:TR. I love that it exists and that it offers a little bit more story in the BTTF universe, but it's a horrible, awful, just plain bad ride.

I'm not shedding too many tears. Just a few.

I couldn't have described it better myself. I gotta agree...TAER IT DOWN! ;)

^Is the one on Hollywood not fun anymore?

I haven't visited USH since 2000, but I enjoyed BTTF that time and on prior trips as well.

I thought it was a fine sim; the first time I rode it, I couldn't get enough. Just power-rode it till the park closed. Well, as much as one can "power ride" it, considering you have to go through the pre-show set-up.

Well I guess it depends on your definition of "fun."
