Another original plot of the ride would have had the title be "Project Fish" and the story revolving around Mr. Burns planning a Nuclear disaster, and the Simpsons and riders having to stop him. This plot was shelved when Harry Shearer declined to perform voice work for the ride, and the plot of Krustyland was brought up instead. See more

Also the metal gate the Simpsons stand behind turns into a velvet rope. See more
