wxboy: ecmoRandomNumbers: Why, dear god, why, do they have to put all this shiat in Florida? Can't they put stuff in a state NOT filled with batshiat and humidity? Is it labor laws? Tax breaks?

Not having to close for the winter, plus it's where all the other theme parks are.


California, where all the other theme parks are and the weather is better.

Yeah....but swampland is a lot cheaper.

Most Simpsons tie-ins haven't been very good, so I'm not too optimistic.

/plus, it's way too late
//though I liked the movie, despite it also being too late

Will it have a monorail?

Red Shirt Blues: FTFA:
Visitors will be able to get 'Krusty-certified meat sandwiches' from a Krusty Burger, donuts from Lard Lad and beer at the Duff Brewery.There will also be a Moe's Tavern along with a Cletus' Chicken Shack, a chance to snatch the catch of the day at The Frying Dutchman, eat a slice at Luigi's Pizza, and visit a Kwik-E-Mart.

Does she come with the theme park?

/oh, you

It will be good, but only for the first three seasons.

drxym: The Universal Studios Florida Simpsons Ride is pretty cool. Nothing special technology wise but extremely well done all the same. I don't expect much of a themed area though end of the park isn't exactly large to begin with. They'll probably just remodel a few buildings along the sides of the lake and call it a day.

That said, the whole Universal Studios half of the resort (Islands of Adventure being the other) had some incredibly tired rides when I visited last year. Terminator 2 was desperate, Shrek had massive queues for an abysmal 5 minute short, Twister - awful, Men in Black - tired & broken down, Disaster! -  15 minutes of BS (and Christopher Walken) for a 2 minute ride at the end. Half the park was past it. Some old rides were surprisingly fun though - the ET ride was trippy and the Mummy rollercoaster was memorable.


I will agree with you on the Mummy, but I have to say two things:
1. Disaster! Is much more fun when your friends are in the show.
2. You obviously didn't go on MiB with incredibly competitive friends who like guns, like me.

\was there for HHN last year
\\incredibly fun week

So ridiculous building a park based on cartoon characters created 25 years ago. Wonder how it'll do when the characters hit 85 years. How are the ones built for Mickey Mouse doing? What? Pretty well, you say? Oh.

Never thought about it, but for further context, Mickey was 27 when Disneyland opened.

The whole "old franchises have no staying power" argument is utterly ridiculous. It'll sell.

STOP COMPLAINING!  It gets worse.  It could have been "Mayberry RFD"  or freaking "Father Knows Best Land"  or the never ending "Donna Reed Acres"

oh god,what have I unleashed .  .  .

If I were dragged kicking and screaming to Orlando to visit the theme parks, I'd insist on visiting it. The Kwik-E-Mart and "Duffman" beer do it for me

My older daughter tried that on me once, on one trip. Her schtick was "How much longer? When we gonna get there?" All the way for a three hour ride she did this, and then all the way back. When we were about 15 minutes from home she asked again and I said "Give me your hand" (my wife was driving). Trusting fool that she was, she did, and I gave it a resounding thwack. "When that stops hurting," I said, "we'll be home." She sat in the backseat for the next fifteen minutes saying "Ow ow ow ow ow" but she never pulled that stunt again.

When I was old enough to move from Michigan to California, Disneyland was so sucky compared to Cedar Point. But it was Disneyland, which was cool when not compared to Cedar Point.

2. You obviously didn't go on MiB with incredibly competitive friends who like guns, like me.


1. Possibly but if you don't have friends in the show, it's a major bore especially since the whole setup takes perhaps 2-3x longer than the ride. And the ride is pretty lame too really.
2. First day I went to the park, the ride was shut. Second day (with my son) it was open and the set up is nice, but the ride was just some dumb laser tag game. Disney have a similar Buzz Lightyear themed ride which was more modern and more interesting.

I don't necessarily count age against a ride, but I just thought these 2 and the others I mentioned were really lame. Disney had it's fair share of lame attractions too - the Muppets 3D, the backlot tour, It's a Small World (which is so awful it's anti-awful), 90% of Epcot etc.

I just thought that Universal Studios was had a disproportionate amount of old / tired rides.
