Sunday Special – The Simpson’s Ride Universal Studios Hollywood

A number of months ago I was perusing Instagram when I spotted a photo of  travel blogger TheClumsyTraveler in front of “Krusty Land”. She was at Universal Studios Hollywood and they have The Simpson’s Ride. WHHAAATTTTT??!   As I commented on the post – I had no idea such a place existed! I love The Simpson’s. This also shows you that I know very little about theme parks – LOL. Well this one is on the list (as is anything Harry Potter).

The Simpson’s Ride opened at Universal Studios back in 2008 (I am so outta the loop) at both Florida and California locations. It replaced the Back to the Future rides that were previously housed at both locales. To enter the ride you must walk through a giant head of Krusty the Clown. The journey continues through some pre-shows and then onto the ride. Afterwards you can visit The Kwik-E-Mart gift shop, have donuts at Lard Lad and even have a beer at Moe’s Tavern. I seriously need to go here! And then head off to see all the Harry Potter fun at Universal Studios too.

And a big thank you to The Clumsy Traveler for posting about it on Instagram! I’m glad to have learned about it.
