Tired of the long waits to experience The Simpsons at Universal Studios Hollywood? Well don’t have a cow man, because that could soon be over thanks to new expansion plans. OK, so perhaps the lineups won’t exactly dissipate, but now there will be even more than enough yellow family fun to go around.
Thanks to all of the success “The Simpsons Ride” has experienced since its Hollywood launch in May 2008, the theme park has decided to double down on the amount of Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie it’s offering. That includes new Simpsons-themed restaurants and shops when it reopens in spring 2015.
Think a real-life Krusty Burger, Luigi’s Pizza and even Phineas Q. Not to mention Moe’s Tavern and Duff’s Brewery for the adults. With stops like that, suddenly the long afternoon lines to get into the ride itself don’t seem that bad, do they?
Other “stops” Universals plans on unveiling include:
- Barney’s Bowlarama
- Springfield Police Station
- Dr. Nick’s office
- The Springfield Nuclear Power Plant
- King Toot’s Music Store
- Springfield Penitentiary
- Springfield Elementary School
- Herman’s Military Antiques
- Mr. Burns’ mansion
Now the real question is, which of these places will guests be able to actually visit, and which will be simple painted walls to help give the “town” an authentic feel? Only one way to find out, and that’s visiting for ourselves.
