An ultimate experience a must ride at least once!
18 September 2014 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"The Back to the Future" Ride everyone must experience at least once in their life, as I had the pleasure several years ago while on vacation with my parents in Florida at Universial Studios. You actually never move but it's like you ride as pictures and images and 3D images come at you you feel like it's actual time travel it's neat don't close your eyes you might miss something! It's fun and clever as the motion carries you thru space seeing sight after sight it's a whole new dimension! From a great movie comes a great ride you want be displeased it's fun and enjoyment at least ride it once! Universial Studios lives up to it's word you do ride the movies!
