It is neat to see the park opting to build Minion Park/Despicable Me Minion Mayhem using the Back to the Future ride system as opposed to the ride style found in the stateside parks. This would be the first new build of this ride system since Back to the Future opened at Universal Studios Japan in 2001. Having just experienced Minion Park in Japan, I'm actually pleased to see this version of the ride being chosen-- I found that the larger screen medium worked so much better than the ones back home, and the additional scenes added to the film really made the experience even better!

I agree the motion simulators and omniscreen made Despicable Me way better in Japan. I'm still bummed out I never got to experience any version of Back to the Future though.

^Honestly I'm a hardcore BTTF fan and even I kind of went 'meh' after I finished riding it. It's weird since it really feels out of place from the 3 film's story.

It was intended as a sequel to the 3rd movie. Doc Brown decided to "move" to the then present and open the Institute of Future Technology. It dated itself pretty quickly though.

^Yea, I got that. I just remember seeing T2:3D and thought it fit the tone of the series as an extension whereas BTTF felt kind of a 'meh' extension of the story.

T2:3D was literally the sequel to the 2nd Terminator movie, since it was directed by James Cameron and intended to serve as the the bridge to the 3rd film he never got to make until now. BTTF was Universal's best attempt since only Spielberg was involved.
