Universal Studios has launched a new website promoting their new Simpsons ride that will open this spring at both the Orlando, FL, and Hollywood, CA, theme parks. The ride will be simulator-style like the popular Back to the Future ride that closed last year. The website describes the ride with:
“The Simpsons are visiting fabulous Krustyland, Krusty the Clown’s Krusty-themed theme park that Krusty guarantees is not a shameless rip-off of other, better theme parks in Florida and California!
Line up alongside Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, then enter through Krustyland’s carnival midway, where you’ll come face to face with Apu, Patty, Selma, Groundskeeper Willie, and other favorite Simpsons characters manning the classic carny booths including the Milk Bottle Toss Game, the Snack Stand and Lost and Found.
Once you board your ride vehicle, get ready to do what was once thought physically impossible: scream and laugh at the same time. It’s one hilarious surprise after another as you’re swept away with the Simpsons on a wild ride through Krustyland… flying, bumping, floating, and crashing your way through Krusty’s thrilltacular attractions.
The ride features all new animation starring the voices of the show’s Emmy-winning original cast, projected onto a towering 80 foot dome. The ride vehicles tilt, pitch, dip and twist with all the mad-capped action on the screen!”
The website has information about getting tickets to the theme parks, as well as opportunities to enter contests and create Simpsons avatars.
