This should be a given, but help us vote whether or not E.T. Adventure should be in The DIS Universal Hall of Fame and leave us feedback below on why you voted the way you did! (You should only be voting yes.)

I've never been to Universal (other than DISApalooza 2015) but I'm quite certain after watching today's show that this one needs to be a YES! ::yes::


So ... Yeah

ET was down for refurbishment the one time I went to Universal Studios (back in 2000), so I voted based on the movie alone. And I love the movie, so I went with yes.

Also ... I think that today's episode needs to go into the DIS Unplugged Hall of Fame.

The part of the ride where you fly over the town alone makes it worthy (my favorite part!). Yes. Classic. Outdated, but still fun.

I also love the queue. It smells like a forest (but an ideal forest. Not a real forest with bugs n stuff. eww).

It's the one queue i have no problem waiting a long time in.

It's not just that it's something I've ridden numerous times (and it's been ages since I've been there), but it's also how we'd go around saying each others' names in ET voices for the remainder of the day. Classic ride with tradition. Definite HOF material.

    A definite yes. We have been coming to Orlando for twenty years since our son was small. We are now a couple in our mid fifties but we still go on it every year as it reminds us of the great times we had with our son when he was little and he is now 32!

    Definitely a yes because of the forest as well!

    I'm disappointed that it's no longer at USH. I give zero flips about the Mummy ride that replaced it.

    This is one of the very few rides I actually ride at Universal and can convince my six-year-old ride chicken to get on, so I love it. (DD won't even ride the Seuss Landing rides.) I wish Universal had more rides like ET!


    Por favor manténganse alejado de las puertas.

    E.T. is Universal's Peter Pan. OF COURSE it has to be in the HoF!!

    Emphatic yes. I love dark rides and ET is fantastic. It might get kind of weird during the end... But that's OK the beginning and middle make up for it.

    I also love the ingenious ride vehicles.

    I definitely think so! One of the classics for sure. As a side note, the show this week was absolutely hilarious and I really enjoyed it!

    Huge hands up, yes! I rode this with my 10 yr old niece & sister-in-law something like 10 yrs ago. While it freaked out my niece (E.T. is freaky), its a classic & a must do. As a aside, please do have your children see the movie first before you make them get on the ride. Helps greatly if they know what an E.T. is & that he is a friendly. Not some soul-sucking alien with a freaky magic finger. :-) Fingers crossed, Universal understands that it's also a must keep ride. As in forever.

    Hands down YES! ET deserves the absolute most prestigious spot in the Hall of Fame! There is no question about it, this is a classic Universal attraction that defines the heart and sole of the park's early days and represents one of the most famous and legendary films in history.. I also agree with the amazingness of the forest queue, this is one of my favorite parts of the attraction, as JL mentioned I am surprised that Universal doesn't take advantage of this space for private events..

    ET's preshow was changed from the 90's release because Spielberg wanted to pay tribute to the Anniversary edition. It definitely is in a place today that can make adults feel strange walking to, because it's plopped right in the middle of a "playground". I'm definitely glad I went through it the first time I visited, and kick myself that I haven't made it a "must-do" on every visit yet; especially with the possibility it could close. It has been 10 years since the tracks were replaced, they lasted 15 years the first time.

    This should just automatically go in - this is probably the only ride at Universal that gives me Disney vibes. The creativity and overall classicness of this ride wins me over

    well, based on this week's episode of Universal Unplugged I got that this ride is found by taking a right at the *****-ah Show and involved a little guy whose special finger does some business ... and this is all in the Kids Areas. Oh, and I think it might be a slow moving suspension dark ride that smells good

    So clearly this is a "yes" for inclusion in the Hall of Fame ;)

    I've only been to the Universal Studios in Hollywood, and really enjoyed that ride when it was there. I'm disappointed in the replacement. So, I vote yes.
