BACK TO THE FUTURE / THE RIDE
Douglas Trumbull, a true pioneer in the field of Special Effects, known for films like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), and Blade Runner (1982). Made his biggest effort to push the theater experience with the Universal Studios "Back to The Future" Ride. This was recently removed and replaced by The Simpson's ride, which is actually the most post-modern ride in history. More on that at a later date perhaps. Today lets pretend we're in a Delorean with hydraulics and praise Douglas Trumbell for his efforts in pushing the limits, especially when technology wasn't in sync with his vision.
