    Re: What if - Futurama where to replace The Simpsons Ride?

    Personally, I think this conversation would be more interesting at the point that the Simpsons goes off the air.

    It'd take a LOT for Uni to walk away from that name recognition. The Simpsons is currently renewed for it's *25th* season - think about that. The majority of younger Uni employees working the ride have never lived in a world where the show is not airing new material.

    Futurama is ok, but it's still on it's seventh "season", aired with breaks and across a few channels.

    Futurama may still break out and become something that's going to have some legs beyond a loyal fanbase. But right now? It's up against the longest running scripted American TV show *period*. That's a hell of a hurdle to overcome. I'd expect to see a new Simpsons film in the attraction before I saw it replaced.

    So to answer the question, I hate to say it but if they did replace it with Futurama, I think you'd see a ride last maybe two-four seasons before it's replaced in some part or entirety with something either new and shiny or with wider resonance.
