    Isn't it in the old Back to the Future ride?

    It will be a simulator thing then if it is. :unsure:

    i just watched it on you tube and the impression i got was like a spider man type thing but it was quite dark- funnily enough i can do the simulator type things it's drops that i hate

    Dave answering this one - its very similar to the old back to the future ride - its in the same building -effectively the same cars, same kind of moves (with differences of course !) - it is a simulator if you didnt know - very well done - back to the future was by far my favourite ride 15 years ago - this is a good shot at something new - maybe a fraction too similar to the previous incarnation - but good all the same - if you like that kind of thing !

    Smoother than its predecessor, and not as truly manouverable as Spidey.. it's a good ride, and not rough or scary.

    Felt I had to add to these comments that although it's a great ride (the bits I saw of it) it is far worse for motion sickness sufferers than Back to the future was. Both DH and I came off a little green!
