    Re: The Simpsons ride.... whats up with it?

    Well I was at Universal on Wednesday this past week, and it does look like there will be a giant Krusty head similar to Orlando. You could see the footers in the ground for it behind the walls. Hopefully they will also do the big Krustyland sign and regular Simpsons Ride sign as well as the 3-D characters in the coaster car.. They still have a little over a month!

    Honestly, Orlando's is overdone. They put up more stuff than they needed to.
    Well, it's supposed to be tacky. It's a carnival! A KRUSTY carnival! I think it looks perfect for the theme. Disney went for Victorian, Universal went for Six Flags.

    Re: The Simpsons ride.... whats up with it?

    I heard something about Harry Shearer not wanting to be involved in the project and thus no Mr Burns or Smithers in the ride. Can anyone confirm this?

    It is not going to be the same without Mr.Burns or Flanders. Want to hear something fun about this through? Universal has Flanders on the offical ride site with voice. lol

    Re: The Simpsons ride.... whats up with it?

    Something that has just been reported by the Orlando Sentinel is that USF's version of this ride is costing 30 Million. Yet Hollywood's is going to cost 40 Million. I wonder what is up with that.

    does anyone know if the Universal Experience museum is open yet?

    Also, does anyone know if Fear Factor Live is in season right now?

    Re: The Simpsons ride.... whats up with it?

    Big news! Hollywood got Krusty!!!!! ......er............






    I actually think USH's facade might be much better than Florida's if done correctly, and seeing the 10 million dollar budget difference between Hollywood's and Florida's, looks like it might be much better.

    Personally, I wouldn't trust those budget figures. It will be the exact same ride. If extra money was poured into something at USH, I doubt it's anything guests would notice.

    Re: The Simpsons ride.... whats up with it?

    Hopefully, Hollywood's will be just as good if not better than Florida's facade. That ten million will go somewhere unnoticeable I bet, but hopefully it'll make the ride experience better. Maybe they are planning to use it on the surrounding area, like for a Krusty Burger or something?

    Team Member previews are taking place Monday and Tuesday in Orlando. Hopefully we'll see some soft openings shortly thereafter.
