Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out! Last week, I let y’all know about the opening of Springfield at Universal Studios Hollywood. Of course, the Addicts team was all united on the East Coast but one addict made sure we were repped at Universal. Special thanks to my beautiful Mom and Sister for going to the opening and taking lots of pics just for the site. Without further ado, click more if you’d like to see all the goodness and a quick blurb from Wookieemama.
Springfield, beautiful Springfield, is OPEN!!! Saturday my daughter and I had the pleasure of visiting downtown Springfield at Universal Hollywood on opening day. It was a HOT day for the end of March but fortunately Universal has misters to help keep you cool. As you enter the park there is no sign of this awesomeness but after wandering past Shrek 3D and then towards the stunt show VIOLA there it is in all its glory.
As you enter Springfield you are immediately immersed. This area is going to be very busy as it has the best food selections in the park. Phineas Q. Butterfat’s Ice Cream is at the front where you can get the usual flavors of vanilla and chocolate but also flavor infused ice cream next door to Luigi’s for pizza and pasta. There’s also the Duff Brewery with the Duff Beer guys out front Bumblebee Tacos hasn’t open yet but looks good. Across the street is Lard Lad Donuts. Krusty Burger is where we decided to get our lunch. We enjoyed a Clogger burger and a Mother Nature burger. Bonus points if you guessed which I chose. We ate our food inside Moe’s Tavern sitting at the pool table. Of course I had to have a Duff Beer with my burger and Katie had a Flaming Moe (non-alcoholic). The chicken dinner the person sitting next to us had from Cletus’s looked pretty good too.
As we wandered around Springfield we tried to look in all the nooks and crannies and of course we remembered to look up too. The Nuclear Power Plant goes off and I have been told that at night the lights dim when that happens. I can’t wait to return to Springfield with the Wookiee. I know that he will point out lots of stuff I missed and write an even more detailed post. Still think he might be a little addicted going to Springfield straight from the airport. For now that’s it from the Wookieemama. Hope you enjoy the pics… TTFN.
So there you go… a quick blurb and some awesome pics! Sound off below with your thoughts. I’ll definitely have more info in the very near future as I’m Springfield bound on Tuesday.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
