At Universal Studios Florida, you’ll find an entire area dedicated to your favourite cartoon family- the Simpsons! This fun-filled area has lots of amazing things to do to keep both the kids and big kids entertained. If you’ve already got your Universal tickets, these are the 5 things you MUST do in Springfield…
1. Meet the Simpsons
A visit to Springfield wouldn’t be complete until you’ve met the famous family for yourself, that’s why this is at the very top of our list. So, get ready to snap a few selfies and enjoy a special meet and greet experience with Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa. You might even get the chance to meet some of the other Springfield residents while you’re there.
2. Experience the Simpsons Ride
As soon as you walk into Springfield, you’ll spot the Simpsons ride. In fact, you won’t be able to miss it thanks to the huge Krusty head ride entrance. This amazing attraction puts you right in the middle of the Simpsons wacky world.
The adventure starts with you joining the Simpsons family on a visit to Krustyland- the theme park owned by Krusty the clown. You’ll embark on a wild virtual reality roller coaster ride, where anything can happen. Look out for the villainous Sideshow Bob, evil pandas, a huge wrecking ball, rushing waterfalls and much more. The Simpsons ride also features lots of fantastic special effects which we’re sure you’ll love. Don’t leave without trying this ride!
3. Order a Flaming Moe
What’s a Flaming Moe you ask? Well, this unique drink is a Springfield speciality and can only be found at Moe’s Tavern. This pub just happens to be Homer’s favourite hangout, so we’d definitely recommend a visit.
This refreshing drink is perfect for when you want to cool down from the Floridian heat. The smoking concoction has a delicious orange flavour and is a big hit with guests. It’s non-alcoholic so anyone can enjoy it. You’ll have to try it for yourself if you want to see what all the fuss is about.
4. Try the food
Springfield has so many tasty treats and themed snacks that you should put on your ‘must-try’ list. One of our favourites has to be the huge ‘Big Pink’ doughnut from Lard Lad Donuts. These doughnuts are so big that you could easily share them between four people, although we won’t judge if you want to keep it all to yourself! The doughnuts are covered with sweet pink icing and rainbow sprinkles…delicious.
Of course, that’s not all. We’d also recommend trying the Korean beef tacos from Bumblebee Man’s Taco Truck, the mouth-watering pizza from Luigi’s pizza or the famous Krusty Burger with a tasty secret sauce. Don't leave without trying the iconic Duff beer either. It's brewed especially for Universal Studios Florida.
5. Visit the Kwik-E-Mart
Fans of the Simpsons will know that the Kwik-E-Mart is a convenience store in Springfield that’s run by Apu. While you won’t be able to meet the famous store owner, you will be able to pick up some great Simpsons souvenirs to take back home with you. You’ll find books, toys clothing, Duff energy drinks and even a bright blue Marge wig! Make sure you take a look in here when you visit.
