Riding With The Simpsons
The Simpsons is probably one of the greatest cartoons of all time. I am sure that countless Simpsons fans will even argue that it is THE greatest cartoons of all time. That might be debatable but the fact remains that The Simpsons draws a huge crowd all over the world.
It is thus no surprise that Universal Studios launched their newest ride in May this year. Simply dubbed The Simpsons Ride, this new attraction has satisfied countless of visitors. The Universal Studios web site describes the ride:
The Simpsons™ are visiting Krustyland, the low-budget theme park created by famed TV personality and shameless product huckster Krusty the Clown!
You are there right alongside Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie as you enter through the carnival-like midway.
Once you board your vehicle you’re in for one surprise after another as you embark on a wild, over-the-top ride through the park… flying, floating, and more or less crashing your way through Krustyland’s kiddie attractions, stunt shows, and thrill rides.
Though I have not had the chance to try out this ride myself, it seems that people who have tried it are raving about it. Eye candy, visually stunning, and fun are just some of the descriptions that I have heard.
So how much is a ride going to set you back? You’d have to pay for at least a 1-day pass for the whole park, the cheapest starting at $54 (for children under 48”). If you are over this height, you have to pay $64.
