Crazy Credits

Because this is presented as a ride "experience" and not a film, no credits are shown on screen. However, "directed by Douglas Trumball", "Music by Alan Silvestri", "Special Effects by ILM" and several other credits are posted on a plaque near the exit to the ride. See more »

Really clever ride, well done.
9 March 2007 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Stars: Christopher Lloyd.

Biff has stolen Doc Brown's car and we have to ram him in another prototype version of the Delorean. We go through time and see a lot of interesting sites. The safety video for the ride shows Biff fooling the security guards and imprisoning Doc Brown. Doc gives the safety spiel and we go in to the room with the ride. You enter a copy of the Delorean with screens on it to see Biff along the ride. It's really fun and kind of a trademark of Universal Studios Hollywood now. The ride itself lasts around 4 minutes long.

Great ride!
