Goofs

During one of the preflight videos Doc Brown mentions to the test subjects that Biff Tannen graduated Hill Valley High class of 1955. However, since Back to the Future clearly stated that he was still in school in November of 1955 the soonest he would have graduated was class of 1956. See more »

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.
