The Simpsons Ride, based on the long-running Fox TV animated series debuted in the old 'Back to the Future' building in May 2008. The theme of the attraction is a Krustyland theme park that you, along with the Simpsons, are visiting. Naturally, havoc ensues.

The small but entertaining queue room features some of the Simpsons characters going about their crazy buisness which certainly is very entertaining. Once inside the ride, you prepare to fall off of a roller coaster and then drop into different rides at Krustyland which seem mysteriously similar to Disney rides!

First of all, I love The Simpsons. If you like the Simpsons, you should enjoy the line and the ride. As you are waiting, there are clips from episodes playing on the screens placed around the queue. The ride is a simulator ride, and it feels like you are actually on a roller coaster. I would recommend this ride to anyone who likes The Simpsons, or just wants to enjoy a simulator ride. - Lisa Jania

I really miss Back to the Future, but this is an amazing re-theming of the ride. I love the humor and parodies of Disney rides. - nick stechman

I like this better than Back to the Future. Fun ride. But not worth it if the line is over than 30 minuets - nick .

I've never been on a simulator like it before and was pretty amazed by how it was done, though am a huge back to the future fan and would have loved to go on the ride themed to that. Loved the way they made fun of other theme parks though... - Rachelle Beaney
