Stop arguing over which Springfield you think The Simpsons is set in, because the answer is going to be Florida — sort of. Universal Studios is adding a Simpsons area to the park that will include a Krusty Burger, Lard Lad donuts, and even Taco Fresho run by Bumblebee Man. If you’re a parent dealing with dragging your kids around a theme park, stop by Moe’s Tavern for some Duff Beer that’s brewed just for the park. Let’s all say it together. Ready? On three. One. Two. Three: I want to go to there.
There will be a new ride called Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl, which is harder to get excited about than grabbing a beer at Moe’s, but that might just because I’m an adult. Take a look at all the attractions of the new Springfield area of the park in this promotional video:
Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative said:
This will be a must-see experience for Simpsons fans all over the world. For the first time ever, they’re going to be able to enter a world that they’ve only seen on television – and we’re really excited to bring that world to life.
We’re pretty pumped about it too, Mr. Woodbury. The new attraction will open this summer, and if you need a few journalists to come down and covering the grand opening — we’re available.
