Published: October 6, 2012 at 12:52 PMThey don't already have Krusty Burgers? That's how Mel's tasted to me.
I think Krusty Burgers fits in with the exterior theming of The Simpson's Ride, so it's probably the better option. I'd like to see both that and Moes, though.

Published: October 6, 2012 at 1:07 PMMoe's wouldn't make a very good family restaurant, because it needs to be dank. Also, Moe's doesn't serve food.
I went with Krusty Burger, not because theme parks need another burger joint, just because it makes the most sense thematically. Realistically, people who aren't huge fans of the Simpsons wouldn't recognize the others.

And also on entertainment franchises how does 25 years on primetime TV stack up to Star Wars and Harry Potter books and movies?
Published: October 6, 2012 at 1:28 PMThe problem with the Simpsons is the show days are numbered. If you have watched the last three seasons compared to the older episodes, you would know what I was talking about. The show is pretty awful these days...
I don't think the show is going to last a 2 more years as I find myself turning them off half way through. The new "HD" look that mimics the Simpsons Movie is another reason why I can't watch them. Ugh.....
I enjoy Futurama much more.

Published: October 6, 2012 at 2:46 PMI picked Moe's Family Feedbag just to see if Universal would go the extra mile and serve french fries on the server's heads.
Published: October 6, 2012 at 10:41 PMKrusty Burger for sure with a Ribwich special every now and again. Or maybe Professor V.J. Cornucopia's Fantastic Foodmagorium and Great American Steakery?
Published: October 6, 2012 at 11:26 PMI assume USF will do something like Three Broomsticks/Hogshead Pub and Confisco Grill/Backwater Bar, where they are in the same building and connected inside but feature their own entrance.

Published: October 8, 2012 at 4:09 PMI just went to USH this weekend. The Simpson's ride didn't do much for me. I was naseated throughout the ride. After it was over, I couldn't wait to get out.
Not sure if I can take much more Simpsons. A restaurant sounds unappetizing. Will it have gross references? Will it have the rats demolishing themselves each possible moment with amputations and acid attacks? Yuck. Will it have the Indian guy sell popcorn? Oh my.
Restaurants are where I can rest and decompress. A Simpson's restaurant might be successful for kids who need constant stimulation, but not for me.
Published: October 8, 2012 at 9:38 PMThat's exactly why I didn't vote for Krusty Burger or Moe's. Those put Universal in the tough position of creating something (a) inauthentic or (b) with lousy food and service. B is unacceptable, and A's a cop-out. That's why I like the Pimento Grove idea (or something like that) - it allows you to bring people into the Simpsons world without subjecting them to a bad dining experience. The whole "everything goes wrong" schtick is fine in a ride, but it doesn't really work for a restaurant.
