[DML] Universal Studios Hollywood giving away DeLorean at BTTF Ride closing


Universal Hollywood invites guests to be the final time-travelers 
on `Back to the Future?The Ride'
Fans can register to win a 1981 DeLorean 

Universal City, Calif. ? After thrilling over 61 million visitors 
with wild rides across "the space-time continuum," the ground-
breaking Back to the Future...The Ride attraction at Universal 
Studios Hollywood will soar into the future for the very last time on 
Labor Day, September 3, 2007.  Fans of the attraction will also have 
an opportunity to take the last ride and drive off as the owner of 
one of the stainless steel 1981 DeLoreans that served as inspiration 
for Doc Brown's flux capacitor-equipped time machines. 

Back to the Future...The Ride blends breakthrough simulator 
technology with a cutting-edge Omni-max 70mm film to create a total 
sensory experience. A signature attraction at "The Entertainment 
Capital of L.A." for over 14 years, the ride is being closed to make 
way for the introduction of a new thrill ride based on the enormously 
popular The Simpsons TV series and movie. The Simpsons ride is slated 
to debut in Spring 2008.

Back to the Future...The Ride was introduced in 1993 as a 
continuation of the Oscar®-winning blockbuster Back to the Future 
film trilogy directed by Robert Zemeckis and executive produced by 
Steven Spielberg for Universal Pictures. The attraction features an 
eight-seat convertible DeLorean Time Travel Vehicle that elevates the 
theme park ride experience to an unprecedented level of detail, 
beginning with an artfully staged queue line experience that helps 
set up the ride's narrative storyline.

At the center of Back to the Future...The Ride is an original film, 
masterfully designed to interface with the simulator's technology by 
an award-winning team of filmmakers, including Oscar®-winning and 
three-time Oscar® nominated director Douglas Trumbull, Oscar®-
nominated cinematographer David K. Kennedy and Oscar®-nominated 
writer Bob Gale.

With imitation being the most sincere form or flattery, the ride has 
inspired many replicas at other theme parks worldwide since its gala 
1993 premiere at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Fewer than 10,000 DeLorean automobiles were built at the company's 
Northern Ireland factory. The car was notable for its futuristic 
design, including a stainless steel exterior and top-opening gull-
wing doors. The 1981 DeLorean that Universal Studios Hollywood will 
give away has been driven with just over 60,000 miles. Officials at 
the studio are unable to estimate how many millions of years the 
vehicle has traveled in the space-time continuum. To learn more about 
winning the DeLorean, guests can log on to 
www.UniversalStudiosHollywood.com or visit the theme park to register 
at specially-created Back to the Future kiosks.

includes a full-day, movie-based theme park and Studio Tour, the

Ride and the world-renowned Studio Tour, which takes guests behind-
the-scenes of such landmark TV and movie locations and sets as Steven
