Looking for the perfect family getaway? Want to escape from it all? So far that you're actually IN A CARTOON? Then have we got a vacation destination for you. It's...The Simpsons, THE THEME PARK!
They're calling it "Springfield," just like on the TV show and it starts with the pre-existing Simpsons ride at Universal Studios in Orlando, but thats just the beginning. All kinds of fun stuff from Homer's hometown have been added. There's Moe's Tavern, Lard Lad's Donuts...even a statue in the town square of Jebediah Springfield. Krusty Burgers and Duff's Beer ("Woo-Hoo!") will be served throughout the park. They've even planned a second ride...alien characters "Kang and Kodo's Twirl and Hurl." Perfect.
Universal hasn't announced a start date but says the doors will open sometime this summer.
Now, can we bring this to Universal, Hollywood? Need me a tall frosty Duff's! (pic from lardlad.com)
