It is replacing Back to the Future: The Ride.


inally a new way to spend your hard-earned d'oh.

NBC-Universal's theme parks are planning a ride based on 20th Century Fox's animated smash "The Simpsons."

The company announced on Tuesday (April 24) that families will be able to experience the world of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie Simpson at the Universal Orlando Resort and at Universal Studios Hollywood starting in the spring of 2008.

"The ride is designed to duplicate the Simpsons home-viewing experience, only at high speed and with lots of screaming," quips "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening.

Dana Walden and Gary Newman, presidents at 20th Century Fox TV add, "'The Simpsons' is nothing short of a cultural phenomenon and nearly 400 episodes in, the multiple Emmy-Award winning show continues to be as hilarious and inspired as ever. Creating an attraction based on this landmark series is a fantastic opportunity for our viewers to experience The Simpsons in a whole new way, as well as potentially expose it to an even wider audience."

The official release boasts that visitors will be able to "experience a side of Springfield previously unexplored as they enjoy the new ride's interpretation of thrill rides, dark rides and 'live' shows that make up a new fantasy amusement park dreamed up by the show's cantankerous Krusty the Clown." Of more interest is the announcement that all of the voices on the attraction will be provided by the show's original vocal cast.

"I am particularly thrilled since, like most people, I'm forever looking for a way to cut the line at Universal Theme Parks," adds James L. Brooks.

The 400th episode of "The Simpsons" will air this May, toward the end of the show's 18th season. After seemingly endless rumors and ample anticipation, "The Simpsons Movie" will hit theaters everywhere on July 27.
