Trivia

The DeLorean uses the "Gale-Zemeckis Coordinates," a reference ot the writer of Back to the Future (1985)Bob Gale, and the film's director Robert Zemeckis. 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 »

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!
