The 25 Greatest Amusement Park Rides in America

18. The Simpsons Ride

Address: Universal Studios, Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA
Website: universalstudioshollywood.com
Duration Of Ride: 6:00
Year Built: 2008
Slogan: "The Simpsons are visiting Krustyland and you are there right alongside Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie as you enter through the carnival-like midway."

While The Simpsons might not seem like the most thrilling source material for a ride, Universal Studios has used sophisticated technology to create an immersive Springfield experience. 2,500 LED lights and an 80 ft. diameter dome are employed to make the vivid simulation function. When the ride launched in 2008, The Simpsons Ride replaced the Back to the Future Ride as Universal's marquee simulator ride attraction, and judging by the positive response from riders, it will likely enjoy a long run as the beloved ride's successor.
