It's Official: The Simpsons coming to Universal Orlando & Hollywood
Written by Robert Niles
Universal confirmed today the oft-discussed switch of its Back to the Future rides to new attractions based on the long-running animated TV show "The Simpsons."Tweet
From Universal's press release:
Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie Simpson – stars of TV’s longest running series – will ride along with guests in a new mega-attraction opening at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood in Spring 2008.
There's no name yet for the ride. Naming theme park attractions a tricky act in the Internet era. Ideally, you want a name where you can get the dot-com URL for a promotional website, that's easy to remember, and in this case, contains the brand name of the theme. ("The Simpsons") There's been speculation, though, that the name of these attractions might include the first names of the characters, but not the Simpsons family name.
