About the Ride
The Simpsons Ride is a state-of-the-art motion simulator ride that transports riders to the magical world of Springfield. It opened in May 2008 at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California and Busch Gardens in Orlando, Florida, where it replaced the beloved Star Tours attraction. Riders enter giant steel wagons capable of holding eight wooden chairs while a 17 inch television monitor plays an episode of The Simpsons. To create an illusion of movement, employees tug on ropes attached to the ride vehicle to create a seamless you-are-there experience. The ride also boasts a state-of-the-art around sound system featuring dead-on vocal impersonators of the original cast. "You'll really think you're in a Simpsons cartoon" says a man
