Trivia

The ride film, along with the lobby monitor and pre-show footage, were included as special features on the 2009 DVD release of Back to the Future (1985). See more »

Goofs

Look closely at the security monitor when the dog is watching them and and see Biff is taunting the security cameras with a dog bone in his mouth. Likely this was used to get the dog to bark at the security monitor. Where he got the bone from and where he was keeping it is never seen. It's not seen in his mouth in the direct shots before and after the scene. See more »

Quotes

Biff Tannen: Hasta la bye bye!

Crazy Credits
