Did You Know?

  • Rather than pulling clips from the show, The Simpsons Ride was created with brand new animation. This is also true for the pre-show and the queue area.
  • The Simpsons Ride replaced the Back to the Future ride in 2008. In order to keep Marty’s spirit alive, you can see Comic Book Guy wearing his futuristic jacket from Back to he Future Part 2.
  • May 15, 2008 was the grand opening date of The Simpsons Ride, however the ride actually opened April 23, 2008 as a soft opening to see how it would do.

The Mouse For Less Tips

  • The Simpsons Ride is fun for all ages, especially those who are true Simpsons fans. If you are not as familiar with the show you should know that much of the humor is adult-oriented.
  • If this makes you a little uneasy with the little ones you can always watch a few episodes of The Simpsons ahead of time to know what you should expect. Who knows, you just might get hooked!
  • Wait times can be so tricky. They vary on everything; weather, time of day, time of year, etc. If you are at the park and want to know a current wait time for The Simpsons Ride (or any of the Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure attractions) you can always download the official Universal Orlando Resort app and view their real wait times.
  • The Simpsons Ride can make Guests a little queasy, as it is a traditional motion simulator. Be aware if you have issues with motion sickness.
