Guests will be able to experience Springfield first-hand in the new replica of the town, which will be home to The Simpsons Ride.
“This will be a must-see experience for Simpsons fans all over the world,” said Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative on the studio’s website Friday. “For the first time ever, they’re going to be able to enter a world that they’ve only seen on television – and we’re really excited to bring that world to life.”
There will also be a Krusty Burger where you can get a Krusty-certified meat sandwich, a Lard Lad doughnut shop, and Moe’s Tavern, which will server Duff Beer brewed exclusively for Universal Orlando –Woo-hoo!
