This is so great! We found this over at Laughing Squid and we couldn’t stop wishing that this was a legit LEGO set.
Look alive, Simpsons fans — everyone’s favorite animated family is getting its own expanded area at the Universal Orlando Resort. Woo-hoo!
The Simpsons franchise has had a presence at Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood since 2007. In 2008, The Simpsons Ride launched in both locations.
This summer in Orlando, Universal is expanding the world around the show and building a Springfield replica within the park.
Universal Orlando says there will be an outdoor attraction and a new ride — Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl. Krusty the Clown and Sideshow Bob will also join the Simpson family members as wandering characters.
There are lots of food attractions taken directly from the show, including Krusty Burger, the Frying Dutchman, Lard Lad and Luigi’s Pizza. Patrons can also imbibe a Duff Beer (which is apparently brewed exclusively for Universal Orlando) at Moe’s Tavern.
This isn’t the first time Universal Orlando has invested in a mini theme park within a theme park. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened at Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park in 2010. An expansion of the Harry Potter attraction, Diagon Alley, will open at Universal Studios Florida in 2014.
I know I can’t wait to drink some Duff suds, eat a Krusty Burger with a partially gelatinated non-dairy gum-based beverage, browse through The Android’s Dungeon & Baseball Card Shop and grab a slushie at the Kwik-E-Mart.
What about you? Will you visit Springfield Orlando? Let us know in the comments.
