Springfield, Springfield, Hollywood, Hollywood… hey Wookiee, Hollywood’s that way… it’s a hell of a town!
Sorry folks, chuckling to myself but I promise I have a point. For anyone who hasn’t seen my previous posts about Universal Studios Hollywood opening up their own version of Springfield this Spring, they are. New pics have become available for it too.
Special thanks to my own dear Wookieemama for sharing the link for all this with me. I’ve been keeping up with the progress as you can see here and here but due to real life, haven’t been able to get back there since November to see how far construction of Springfield has gone.
Thankfully there are amusement park blogs that are as enthusiastic as me about upcoming additions to Universal Studios. After this paragraph is the link to MiceChat article about upcoming items. The article has a bunch of pictures about Harry Potter, the Fast and Furious addition to the Studios Tour and of course, most importantly… Springfield additions. The Springfield images are at the end of the post.
It really looks like they took the image below and recreated it. The image comes from the first announcement about this awesomeness. You can see really see how the Android’s Dungeon side starts your journey in to Springfield. Also images of what looks to be Springfield Elementary, Springfield Penitentiary and the Nuclear Power Plant. The Springfield Sign is completely clear. Also images of the Aztec Theater Marquee and Police Station. In a few you can also clearly see Moe’s. Color me stoked for signs of Bumblebee Man’s Taco Truck. Basically I’m saying if you didn’t already click the link, do so and compare it to the image. I’m soooooooo excited. This is gonna be so cool!
In the middle of February, I have a trip planned to see how much more got done. I will certainly be taking pictures for all of us. The opening date for this attraction is set non-specifically as Spring 2015 but rest assured I will be there when it opens for full details and possibly a chance to hang out with some of you. Honestly, having been to the one in Florida, this looks like it might be even cooler and that’s a high expectation based on how much I loved my visit.
What do y’all think of this? Been to Springfield in Florida? Interested in meeting up with the Fuzzball when this becomes a complete reality? Sound off below and stay classy.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
