They provided us with a sneak peek several months ago, but now those colorful renderings have become a reality! If you love The Simpsons, you’ll be excited to hear that the world’s first ever Simpsons-themed environment, aka Springfield, has opened at Universal Orlando Resort. Springfield brings guests inside the world of The Simpsons. Rides, restaurants and the other attractions that are part of this new space, are all inspired by the show.
Grab a Duff Beer at Duff Brewery or enjoy a slice of pizza at Luigi’s Pizza that’s “a-nice”, just be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Chief Wiggum as he’s always in the park, watching out for the bad guys. Speaking of characters, Krusty the Clown and Sideshow Bob are Universal’s two newest walk-around Simpsons characters, so be sure to have your cameras ready for photo opps!
In addition to The Simpsons ride and others, Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl is the area’s newest attraction providing thrills and spins to those who ride it.
