Event Details

Today was the day for the Grand Opening of the new Simpsons ride at Universal Studios. Around 10 am everybody gathered for the opening ceremony. First the park handed out Marge Simpson wigs for everybody to wear. Then the CEO of Universal was on hand for a short introduction and ribbon cutting. Krusty the clown was on hand to lead the orchestra as the ribbon was cut. With a small fireworks display and lots of confetti in the air it was time for a ride on the new Simpsons thrill ride. The ride is a simulator ride in which you are in a large room with a giant doomed screen. The cars are on a hydraulic platform which moves in sink with the movie being played. The ride its self is a cartoon of an out of control roller coaster car that careens throughout Springfield the imaginary city of the Simpsons. The ride is a lot of fun and will be enjoyed by all. Below are lots of photos from the opening ceremony, ribbon cutting and photos of some photo of the ride and its surroundings.
