The last remaining incarnation of 'Back to the Future - The Ride' is set to close May 31st at Universal Studios Japan. There is no word yet on what will replace the attraction. Universal closed the Universal Studios Florida version in March of 2007 and in September of 2007 closed the Universal Studios Hollywood version. Both of those attractions were ultimately replaced by The Simpsons Ride.
I don't recall riding Back to the Future - The Ride when I was younger, and despite my fondness for the Back to the Future series, I can't say I'll miss this attraction. The story of this ride just does not feel like the rest of the franchise and is purely going for spectacle. Which is fine for a theme park ride but as a fan of the trilogy I want something with a little more thought.
