Easily my favorite ride EVER. This is the Krustyland ride at Universal Studios, also known as 'The Simpsons Ride.' It's a motion simulator ride where you sit in a car with a huge screen in front of you. It also has water, smell and smoke effects and mimics the feeling of g-force.
The entire area of the ride (inside, out and around) is made to look like you're in the Simpsons. Even the ATM! While you're in line you watch a video leading up to the events of the ride. In short, Krusty opens his amusement park and Sideshow Bob shows up to kill the Simpsons (and you).
And here's the Simpsons stuff I got at the NBC Experience store and also featuring my Lisa & Maggie dolls. -Simpsons Season 1 T-shirt -Simpsons bag -Yellow Homer Simpson mug -Lisa Simpson flashlight pen
I found these photos while packing today. All but the bottom right, which you've already seen: [link]
These are all photos taken by me at the local fair around 1990-91, when I was 9 or 10 years old. It was a free show, and the fairgrounds were within walking distance of my house, and being a huge Simpsons fan back then (WAY bigger than I am now, believe it or not) I begged my mom to take me to the show, and she did.
I have no idea what book Homer is reading in the top left photo. The top right photo with Homer, Marge and Lisa looks like it must have been a musical/dance number. The bottom left shows Marge and Homer talking to Principal Skinner, with Bart hiding in the background. FYI Skinner wears a wig! Bart steals it as a prank, if I remember correctly. And the bottom right is a close-up of my then-idol, Bart, back when he wore "The Mysterious and Legendary BLUE Shirt."
