Speculation on a Replacement of the Simpsons Ride

After a few months of some speculation, it might be that the Simpson’s Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood will be closed down and replaced.  IMG_7740

Now, although the park hasn’t announced any hints on what might replace it, many Universal fans have been posting there ideas of a new thrill ride. (NOTHING HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN RELEASED) One of the most popular ideas is a motion simulator ride, so the Simpson’s Ride structure could be kept and just re-themed, featuring a theme from the new Universal film, Pacific Rim.  For those who are unfamiliar with the film, it is a science fiction thriller in which aliens begin to attack from underground earth, and humans must build giant, human controlled robots to destroy the aliens.  The movies 2 tag lines were “Go Big or Go Extinct” and “To Fight Monsters, we Created Monsters”.     PACIFIC-RIM-Poster

The new ride, similar to its predecessor, would have riders wear 3D glasses. (The old one did not, so that would be a new feature).  The ride is expected to allow riders to experience the combat between one of the robots and one of the aliens, from inside the robot.  Some Universal bloggers even expect this ride to possibly be interactive, allowing riders to control their robot, similar to EPCOT’s Mission: SPACE in Orlando.  Other speculations have included an interactive dark shooting ride based off of the film RIPD (similar to Men in Black Alien Attack in its sister park in Orlando), or 2 other motion simulator ideas: Godzilla: the Ride and Back to the Future part II, but the best looking speculation right now seems to be the Pacific Rim idea.
