The awaited Simpsons ride at Universal Orlando is now open in "soft opening" and you are going to see everything about it as i found for you athe best available videos, and yes, including the one of the ride itself, so beware, this article is full of spoilers from the beginning to the end!
First, do not miss the Kevin Yee article on miceage.com today as Kevin did a perfect description of this new ride, with great pictures. As Kevin did a great job better than i could do, may be the best is that you go read his article first and comeback on D&M after, it will help you to better understand what the following videos are about. Also, i must remember you that the Simpsons ride is playing in the former Back to the future building, using exactly the same simulator technology and Omnimax screen.
That's it, you've read Kevin's update? Okay, here are the videos you're waiting for! The first one will show you the Simpson's ride area including the shop.
Next video will show you one of the pre-show movies
And here is the Simpsons Ride Safety Video, the one you see just before you board in the simulator vehicle
This next one will show you other footage of a preshow movie AND the beginning of the ride itself...
But it's on this last video that you will discover all of the new ride movie - a special thanks to Vinnie who had the courage to transgress Universal rules as it is explicitely forbidden to film during the ride itself!
And if you want my feeling, this new Simpsons ride movie looks reaaally good, just as good as the old, and already missed, Back to the future ride!
