I grew up going to theme parks. While most families were taking vacations to Hawaii, my family packed up the truck, threw us in the back with a camper shell as our only protection (seats belts?), and nothing but the road ahead of us as we trekked to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm and Universal Studios every year. Seriously, this is all we did every single year. It's the reason why I love theme parks, and also the reason why I've never been to any of the real locations showcased in It's a Small World. As an adult, my love for theme parks is still as strong as it was as a child, and this year I got to visit Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights, one of the biggest Halloween events held every year in Los Angeles.
Given the popularity of Universal Studios' many film attractions, from the 'Transformers' rides to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, it was only a matter of time before the park corporation dug into a place fans have been longing to go: Springfield! 'The Simpsons' will get its own themed attractions at Universal Studios Florida in the near future, from rides to Duff beer at a real-life Moe's Tavern, so find out when you can visit Springfield IRL inside!
