Construction walls have gone up around The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios Florida, although the ride remains open.
We immediately noticed that the ride vehicle full of the Simpsons family had been removed from near the sign. Below is a photo from the Universal Studios Florida website of the figure.
While it’s not quite as tall as the sign, it should be peeking over the construction walls if it’s still there.
It’s not clear if it will be removed permanently or not.
The construction walls are decorated with “The Simpsons” characters, as well as signs pointed to the attraction entrance around the corner.
The walls block the usual ride entrance as well as two of the carnival games: Eye Carumba! and Help Santa’s Little Helper.
The Simpsons Ride opened in May 2008, replacing Back to the Future: The Ride, which had closed in March 2007. The surrounding area was subsequently split off from World Expo (which now only houses Men in Black: Alien Attack) and become Springfield.
How do you feel about a possible The Simpsons Ride refurbishment? Let us know in the comments.
