Added DiffLines:

* OminousOwl: A creepy owl makes an appearance just before the riders dodge another truck.

Added DiffLines:

* ConvenientlyClosePlanet: It apparently only takes three or-so seconds of lightspeed to reach the Green Planet. Of course, the fact that it takes ''that'' long means you're not really at lightspeed; to a hypothetical particle traveling at the speed of light, it takes exactly zero time to go any distance, no matter how long.


The ride first opened with Universal Studios Florida on June 7, 1990 and continues to remain in operation. At Universal Studios Hollywood, it opened on June 12, 1991 and closed on March 31, 2003 to make way for ''Ride/RevengeOfTheMummy''. At Universal Studios Japan, it opened with the park on March 31, 2001 but closed on May 10, 2009 and was later replaced with ''Space Fantasy: The Ride''.

* TheTheTitleConfusion: Despite always being marketed as ''E.T. Adventure'', the queue line videos as well as the pre-show has Spielberg exclusively referring to the ride as ''The E.T. Adventure''.
* ThemeTuneCameo: In the celebration scene, some of the Green Planet's residents can be heard in the background playing the film's main theme on their own instruments.
* TreehouseOfFun: A treehouse can be seen just before the first scene of the ride, though it's not explained why it's there or who it belongs to.

* ContinuitySnarl: This ride appears to retcon the film spin-off, ''Book of the Green Planet'', as the book mentioned that all of E.T.'s kind have a healing touch, while in the attraction it's said that only E.T. possesses the ability.
