Springfield — home to everyone’s favorite animated family, The Simpsons — comes to life at Universal Orlando Resort this summer. An expansion of an existing mega-attraction, The Simpsons Ride, Universal Studios’ Springfield replica will feature a Krusty Burger, Lard Lad doughnut joint and Duff Brewery, in addition to favorite hangout spots like Moe’s Tavern and Kwik-E-Mart. For a bit of post-meal entertainment, a new attraction called Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl will take “foolish humans” on an intergalactic spin designed to send them into orbit, while Krusty the Clown and Sideshow Bob are also set to make their debuts within the new space. “This will be a must-see experience for Simpsons fans all over the world,” says Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative. “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.”
