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

    Is this ride ever going to get a name?

    And it doesn't look like too much work is even going on around it... building is still the same colors...
    I know the one at USF is coming along... but here at USH.. its the same thing, and its only a couple months away.

    I havn't seen updated pics for a week now.. but something tells me there is still no new paint...

    So is there ever going to be any more info on this?

    I'm guessing USH is doing all the work inside, and the outside will get a minor update such as paint and that is about it.

    The rides should be open in April. I've heard March for the USF version, but seeing as how they have that whole area torn up, I don't think it's very likely.

    They are painting USH Simpsons building. An these pics were taken a couple weeks back I believe. Scaffolding is up all around the entire building and the front is already painted a light purple(Pics from [Link to unauthorized site removed])

    This looks like significant work to me.

    and there's actually been a lot of painting done over the last week. I don't think we'll see anything else major to the outside of the building except for a big Krusty the Clown face over the entrance. But it looks like some more major work being done around the building however.

    Knowing the history of how bad universal is naming rides (Jurassic park THE RIDE, Revenge of the Mummy THE RIDE, Back To The Future THE RIDE, King Kong THE RIDE, Jaws THE RIDE)

    I think it'll be called Simpsons THE RIDE


    Actually on the radio they called it "The Simpsons Ride", so you never know. It could be any order of the words (The, Simpons, and Ride).

    ahh yes, I am aware that the one at USF is coming along nicley. I was refering to the one at USH (I should have put that in the title, my appoligies)

    But from the post above, it looks like they have finally started with some work at USH as well.

    The only part of this ride I am looking forward to is the segment in the new film where you can see Doc and Marty flying around in a delorean... As well as the wall in front where you can see one simpsons character wearing Marty's 2015 jacket.. another character is also holding a toy delorean... so It seems like USH and USF are both including references to BTTF.

    Thankfully, only USH consistently names the attractions that way.

    Sorry, I missed where you mentioned USH. In my little east coast centric mind, I tend to forget about the other side of our country at times. lol

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

    I am not opposed to it being call The Simpson's Ride!

    I get sooo exhauseted with long attraction names! And guest end up just calling them by a shortened variation anyways! We here online always use Acronms because the names are so long.... HISTA.... and so on...

    But YAY SIMPSONS! I cannot wait to experience this attraction!

    Even after all these years, there are still a lot of people in Los Angeles who barely know that Universal has rides (rather than just the tour). So I guess they have to keep beating that horse.

    I don't really have high hopes for the Simpsons Ride. It seems like there isn't enough time to build anything substantial.

    I don't mind what they call it, it's only a name...I only hope that its great as it has replaced my favourite ride so I hope it is worth it
