Universal Studios is Building Springfield - Simpsons Attraction Expansion

Updated: 28 May 2013 07:03:31 AM

Woo Hoo!

Hot on the news that it will be expanding the explosively popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Universal Studios Florida has announced that it will also be building a real-life Springfield from The Simpsons!

Built around Universal Studio's Simpsons Ride, the new area will mimic the infamous cartoon city right down to the last detail.

In a statement released Thursday, Universal Studios confirmed that attractions will include a Krusty Burger, a Lard Lad Donuts, and Moe's Tavern – which will be serving Duff beer!

Kang & Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl

Fans of the long-running, animated series will also be able to enjoy a brand new Simpsons ride, Kang & Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl, which promises to "take 'foolish humans' on an intergalactic spin designed to send them into orbit" (it may be wise to wait to grab a slice of Luigi's pizza until after you've ridden this one).

The area will also offer brand new Meet and Greets, featuring two of The Simpsons most popular (and most demented) villains: Krusty the Clown and Sideshow Bob!

Treehouse of Terror?

Having Springfield right in the heart of Universal Studios could also mean a "Treehouse of Horror"-themed haunted house at upcoming Halloween Horror Nights, which will be sure to please Simpsons fans and horror fans alike.

Universal has not yet confirmed a solid opening date for Springfield or said whether it will be opening all at once, but with both Springfield and Diagon Alley under construction at the back of the park, Universal Studios visitors have a lot to look forward to in the coming year.
