First Look: The Simpsons Theme Park “World” Coming To Universal Studios

The heart of the new Simpsons area at Universal is going to be the already existing ride, but the rest of it – at least judging from this official bit of concept art – will offer the park a multitude of ways to take more of your money. You can buy Duff Beer, Krusty Burgers and whatever lines the shelves of The Android’s Dungeon and Baseball Card Shop.

And I don’t mean yellow nerd dust.

Here’s the press release from Universal.

The expansive, new area within Universal Studios will be anchored by the mega-attraction, The Simpsons Ride, and will allow guests to enter the world of The Simpsons like never before. It will be the only place in the world where guests can walk the streets of Springfield. It will include a brand-new outdoor attraction, places and foods pulled right from the show and two new Simpsons characters who will make their debut with the new area – Krusty the Clown and Sideshow Bob.

And yes – there will be Duff Beer, brewed exclusively for Universal Orlando.

For the first time ever – anywhere – fans will be able to walk down Fast Food Boulevard and visit the places that helped Springfield stake its claim as “Shelbyville by the Sea.” They will be able to grab a Krusty-certified meat sandwich at Krusty Burger, snatch the catch of the day at the Frying Dutchman, get a slice at Luigi’s Pizza, go nuts for donuts at Lard Lad, enjoy a “Taco Fresho” with Bumblebee Man and imbibe at Moe’s Tavern.

The new attraction – called Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl – will take “foolish humans” on an intergalactic spin designed to send them into orbit.

I absolutely never want to get within twenty metres of Krusty the Clown.

I think they should hire Rich to do a shift at “Dungeon and Cards.” That’d be cruel. Besides, we met when I was working behind the counter in a comic shop and it’s time I had a chance to give him a taste of his own medicine.
