    Angry Back to the Future closing!

    I just read that Universal Studios Hollywood is closing Back to the Future: the Ride on Monday! Someone play Taps, quick!

    Well, at least it isn't as bad as condition like USF's was when they shut down.

    I'm fine with them closing the ride...if they replace it with an updated BttF ride, but sadly that aint gonna happen. Such a shame such a huge and fun film franchise will lose its place in themeparkdom, perhaps it will wash up on Disney's shores but I highly doubt that. If only

    Yes, updated would be a good idea. I just remember when they closed it in Florida and the press release or something said that kids today wouldn't know who Doc Brown is. I nearly lost my mind for several reasons:

    1. You just rereleased the series on DVD like a year ago!!!!!
    2. It's a classic film franchise, if the kids don't know, that's just sad.
    3. (My ultimate argument when Disney makes this claim) Yeah, and taking it out completely helps that problem! I mean, I didn't know anything about Tom and Huck, but when I read the two stories, I related because of the Frontierland attractions.

    It really comes down to my soapbox issue. Kids aren't getting basic knowledge they need, as a result the lack reference for anything more than 5 years old. A sign that the world is officially going to pot. Almost literally.

    sorry, this is making me mad. I was hoping to go before this happened.

    Another argument to make: they still have the Waterworld: A Sea War Stunt Spectacular... do they expect kids to know this movie? People actually want to see the movie after watching the show...

    Another argument: Universal doesn't merchandise very well.

    Re: Back to the Future closing!

    To be fair, my wife of 24 had no idea what BTTF (the movies) was until like 4 months ago when I re-re-re-bought the DVD set (for $44!, WTF is up with that!?).. she never wanted to go on the rides on either coast, because I mentioned the dinosaur scene, well, let's just say after riding JP...yeah, she didn't go on it.

    Universal Studios is ever changing and must update to the current taste of the population. So welcome the Simpsons with open arms.

    I met my wife at the employee party for BTTF in 1993 and we went this past weekend to see it in its final week. Very sad to see it go.
