The mobile audio post above was recorded using Utterz while I was waiting in the queue at The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. The $30 million ride officially opened on May 15th this year so it was very busy - even on a day when the park was not that crowded due to rain.
Jay Cridlin of the St. Petersburg Times wrote that "the ride is packed with more original, funny material than you'd expect to see in a sitcom, much less a theme park." However, he admitted that the ride was "a little discombobulating".The one millionth rider was hosted on the ride on July 14, 2008, two days before my visit. According to Universal this milestone was reached fast than any other attraction ever at the park.
The photos come from my Flickr account where you can see a few more photos from my afternoon at Universal. Finally, the YouTube video below is from the pre-show area prior to boarding the six minute ride (which I waited for about an hour to board). It includes all the safety warnings in a way The Simpsons could only offer.
