D'oh! Universal Orlando opens real-life 'Simpsons' Springfield

Feel like a Krusty Burger and a Duff? Head over to Simpsons Fast Food Boulevard in Orlando, Fla., for a taste of "Simpsons"-style fare.

Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla., has expanded its The Simpsons ride to include a real-life version of Springfield, where you can visit with your favorite eateries.

Pop by Moe's Tavern for a quick pre-lunch Duff, perambulate on over to Krusty Burger for a big ol' ribwich -- or, if you're feeling fancy, hit Luigi's for a slice of pizza, then swing by the Kwik-E-Mart for a few supplies. Visitors are now able to take their repast in truly cromulent style.

The theme park has recently added a sort of miniaturized Springfield to its "Simpsons"-themed motion simulator ride, including a number of standalone shops and a Fast Food Boulevard containing a number of small eateries.

Standalone shops include Moe's Tavern, Krusty Burger, the Kwik-E-Mart, and the Android Dungeon (which is just a facade, with a sign on the door stating the store is closed for "Bi-Mon-Sci-Fi-Con"), while Fast Food Boulevard plays host to Cletus' Chicken Shack, where you can munch on chicken and waffles; Flaming Moe's for non-alcoholic cocktails; The Frying Dutchman for fried seafood; Luigi's, which disappointingly only serves pizza; and, for a healthy option, Lisa's Teahouse of Horror, which serves salads and sandwiches.

Apparently the park isn't finished yet, either; a Duff Brewery seems to be in the works, along with a Lard Lad doughnut store, a Jebediah Springfield statue, and a new octopus ride starring Kang and Kodos. However, it just won't be right until someone builds the Springfield Tire Fire.

Actually, it looks really well put together (if a little greasy). Head on over to theme park news site Inside the Magic for a bunch more photos and videos.
