Following the tremendous success of the Springfield addition to Universal Orlando, Universal Studios Hollywood has now officially announced their own expansion of the existing “The Simpsons Ride” to include more of the popular animated series.

The Springfield area at Universal Studios Hollywood is said to be even bigger than its Orlando counterpart, adding new restaurants and shops when it opens in spring 2015.

Inspired by locations made famous throughout the TV series’ 25 seasons, Springfield will include signature eateries from Krusty Burger to Luigi’s Pizza and Phineas Q. Butterfat’s 5600 Flavors Ice Cream Parlor to iconic watering holes like Moe’s Tavern and Duff’s Brewery.

Newly-released artwork also shows Barney’s Bowlarama, Springfield Police Station, Dr. Nick Riviera’s “office,” the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, King Toot’s Music Store, Springfield Penitentiary, Springfield Elementary School, Herman’s Military Antiques, and Mr. Burns’ mansion – though some (most?) of these are likely to just be facades, not actual buildings that can be visited.

The successes of Springfield in Orlando should offer an indication of how popular this area will be.

    Oh, boy! That Simpsons-themed section at Universal Orlando is so very popular so that Universal could make another one at Universal Studios Hollywood like they’re doing right now. What next that Universal should build another section based on that same popular prime time cartoon sitcom like the Simpsons to other of their theme parks?
