An entertaining ride
28 May 2008 | by (Orange County, California) – See all my reviews

I miss the old Back to the Future ride at Universal Studios Hollywood, but this ride is an enjoyable one. You take on the role of tourists at Krustyland, which is under attack by the evil Sideshow Bob, who has sworn to kill the Simpsons. The ride is full of plenty of classic Simpsons humor and features the voice cast from the show. This also happens to be the only ride I've ever been on in which I wish I'd spent more time waiting in line, because there's plenty of funny new Simpsons clips to watch in line and I didn't get to see them all. Overall a pretty enjoyable experience that pokes fun at Universal Studios itself and at theme parks and rides in general. A good time!
