Back to the Future The Ride in Florida originally opened to the public on May 2, 1991. It closed its doors to the past, present, and future on March 30, 2007. The attraction in California closed on Sept 3, 2007. Nothing has been said as of yet for the ride in Japan.
Michael J. Fox was asked to reprise his role as Marty McFly in the ride as Doc's personal assistant and test volunteer, but he turned it down. He can still be seen in the queue video, within archive footage from the Back to the Future trilogy.
