Woo Hoo! ‘Simpsons’ Theme Park Coming to Universal Orlando

Park to open at Universal Studios Orlando this summer

Forget any talk of Oregon. Now it seems the Simpsons’ home is in Florida.

Universal Studios has announced that our favorite Springfieldians are expanding their reach at Universal Orlando Resort this summer.

The new area is anchored by the simulator Simpsons Ride, which opened at the park in 2008, and will include the new ride Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl and lots of themed food and drinks — including a Krusty-certified meat sandwich at Krusty Burger and, of course, Duff Beer.

Universal Orlando Resort has thematic events and rides based around several film and TV institutions, including the “Harry Potter” and “Spider-Man” franchises.
