If you live in or visit California this Summer, add Universal Studios Hollywood to your list of places to visit. Universal Studios is celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year with a few new attractions that are definite must sees! Today I want to share a peek at “Springfield,” an-all new immersive experience surrounding the super fun “The Simpsons Ride.”
Are you a Simpson's fan? Then you are going to love walking into "Springfield," hometown of America’s favorite family, The Simpsons. Even if you are not as familiar with the show, like my girls who are a little too young to understand the humor, you will still enjoy entering a bright, silly town filled with fun characters. “Springfield” is designed to capture the spirit of the animated town and engage visitors and fans of the show in the intensely absorbing and colorful world made famous throughout the series’ record-setting 26 seasons.
Guests visiting “Springfield” will have the pleasant sensation of being hurled through their television sets and into the accurately depicted town, complete with signature eateries such as BumbleBee Man's Taco Truck, Krusty Burger, Cletus’ Chicken Shack, Luigi’s Pizza and Phineas Q. Butterfat’s Ice Cream Parlor, along with Homer’s favorite hangouts, Lard Lad Donuts, Moe’s Tavern and Duff Brewery.
If you are hungry, then Springfield has a lot of delicious options for you to choose from. I just had to try the Krusty Burger and it was delicious. It was actually just what I needed to satisfy my hunger from walking around all morning, a fresh and delicious charbroiled cheeseburger and fries definitely hit the spot.
Walking around "Springfield" you are welcomed by all of the characters that you have grown to know and love over the past 26 seasons that they've lived in your television. Say hello and take pictures with Springfield's finest, Chief Wiggum.
Make sure to pick up one of Homer's favorite treats from Lard Lad Donuts. This giant pink donut covered in sprinkles is delicious. The most fun part of Sprinfield is going on the Simpsons ride at Krustyland. The whole experience builds a lot of excitement and the ride is AMAZING! It was almost too intense for me, almost. It definitely made my palms sweaty and I promise, you will LOVE it!
Taking pictures with the characters is half the fun for my kids. If you notice Homer was being particularly rambunctious on this day and was determined to look inside my daughters bag, which of course was holding our donut from Lard Lad Donuts. He even covered my daughters face during the picture, Lisa on the other hand was as sweet as could be.
Of course, I needed a photo of my girls with Millhouse. Classic! Check out Universal Studios on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates and come back in a few days when I share more about our fun day at Universal Studios including the new “Fast! & Furious!—Supercharged” and the “Nighttime Studio Tour.”
