WOO HOO! The Simpsons theme park is coming to Universal Studios

May. 24, 2013by: Niki Stephens

When I was a kid I always wanted to go to Universal Studios. After my favorite Nick shows, it always said "filmed in front of a live studio audience at Universal Studios". Sadly, I never got to be on LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE. I also haven't ridden the JURASSIC PARK ride. I live in Texas. We have Six Flags and a small ass version of Legoland.

The reason I am even talking about all this has to do with the fact that Universal Studios will be opening a theme park for THE SIMPSONS. AWESOME!!! I recently I was thinking that I needed to go back and revisit the show from the beginning. I miss it. Hulu needs to get on obtaining that. Anyway, the video below shows the layout of the park which is very much like downtown Springfield. We finally get to experience what Duff Beer and Krusty Burgers taste like.

Pack up the dysfunctional family because it's opening this Summer.

Extra Tidbit: For Justinvsky1: It's at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. D'oh! Oh, and you're welcome.

Really this is an expansion of the already-there Simpsons area...

...so, not really its OWN theme park.

On the plus side, the existing Simpson's ride is a lot of fun.

I went to Universal Studios for my senior trip a few years ago and they already had a Simpsons themed section of the area, so all this really is is just an add on.

I do regret not being able to make it to Universal Orlando when I was a kid. I would have loved to see Nickelodeon Studios but alas it wasn't in the cards at that time. What really intrigues me about what they're doing down there this along with the expansions to Harry Potter and the clinging to the Marvel franchises makes it for me a better buy than anything Disney has at the moment in Orlando.

Talk about late news. This news has been around the net for almost 9 months since before the construction even started. As for it being a theme park, no its basically just a spinning ride and some buildings redesigned to handle more people. They have been making additions to there ever since they realized the revenue that was lost when the whole amity area was demolished. Thats why they took out part of the original bttf que for space for carnival games. Now they basically have them all piled
Talk about late news. This news has been around the net for almost 9 months since before the construction even started. As for it being a theme park, no its basically just a spinning ride and some buildings redesigned to handle more people. They have been making additions to there ever since they realized the revenue that was lost when the whole amity area was demolished. Thats why they took out part of the original bttf que for space for carnival games. Now they basically have them all piled on top of each other all in a concerted effort to get people to spend as much money as possible on items you can actually buy in the stores for a cheaper price. Now if you really want something interesting to report on consider looking across the water at the new harry potter area. Gringotts bank building is fully up and as we speak they are slowly developing the inside. The london side is progressing at a rapid rate with building appearing on a regular basis that suggest this attraction will be far larger than the simpsons additions which combined only take up a fraction of the space this new harry potter attraction will. When all of that is done its probably gonna double the size of the area that jaws used while providing the first ever means to jump from park to park without having to exit through the typical turnstiles. Now that is something I have never seen in any theme park before. I do like the video but you are a little late. Try screamscape some time cause their reporting is kick ass.

you talking about watching Nick as a kid brings up alot of old memories. I used to watch alot of Nick shows to back in the late 80s/early 90s. I also wanted to go on the shows like double dare, watching shows like Salute your Shorts. those where the easy times. anyways about the simpson theme park, sounds cool, alittle late if you ask me. but better late then never i guess.

Awesome news! I've been to Universal a couple of times. And I was shocked when they closed the JAWS ride down as it was one of my favorites. But this is better than any news I've heard in a long time. Also, that side of the park is kinda meh to me. MIB: Alien Attack is not that great, IMO. So, if they shake things up great. And apparently the Simpsons will always be an important part of pop culture.

This would be good if The Simpsons were still funny and relevant. I suppose this will work well as a form of nostalgia for most people. I mean, who really watches The Simpsons anymore?

This isn't so much a theme park as TWO rides and a couple of shops.

A real life Krustyland! I know the Simpsons ride in LA was converted from the Back to the Future One. Yeah, the BTTF ride is quaint, but there's the nostalgia factor and it would've been nice to see it still running.
