Goofs

Just before the DeLorean crashes through the Courthouse clock as it leaves 2015, look carefully at the clock and you will notice that it is actually working and displaying the same time as the time circuits (3:44am), even though this takes place merely a few days after the 2015 events of Back to the Future Part II and the clock was still not functional and stuck on 10:04pm in the movie.

Doc Brown: Biff! How in the blazes did you get here?

Fun ride!
28 July 1999 | by (So. Attleboro, Ma) – See all my reviews

Well, I just recently went on the ride and it was very thrilling. The line is not as long as it used to be since the ride is old and other rides like Jaws, Twister, and ET get attention, so I suggest going and waiting because you have to wait for everything at Universal Studious. Kongfrontation is the worst line. Anyway, the ride was thrilling and I suggest to sit up front.
