Did You Know?


Michael J. Fox was asked to reprise his role as Marty McFly in the ride as Doc's personal assistant and test volunteer, but he turned it down. He can still be seen in the queue video, within archive footage from the Back to the Future trilogy. See more »


At the end of the preflight video, on wide screen televisions the boom mic is visible toward the top left of the screen, next to Doc Brown. See more »

Very Cool Ride
19 August 2001 | by (Providence, RI) – See all my reviews

I went on this ride before I saw the movie. It is one cool experience! The Doc himself guides you on your ride through time to catch Biff Tannen, who has stolen the original time machine. The IMAX screen makes you feel you are actually flying through time. The moving 8-seat DeLorean helps too. Watch the little movie screen on the DeLorean-you get to see Biff beg Doc to save him. Quite a satisfying moment. The only problem is there is no Marty to help out Doc. I get the feeling he might be lonely. Still, a very cool ride! Thanks Mom and Dad-they took me on the ride and got me the movies. (They regret it now, I'm sure.) 5 stars out of 5-due to Doc's as-ever great performance and the realness of the ride. (He DOES NOT overact!)
