The Simpsons Ride reaches a million riders



The Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios recently became the fastest attraction in Universal Orlando history to hit one million riders, the company announced today. The millionth rider, Dion Fenderson, was on vacation from the Detroit suburb of Eastpointe with his wife LaTika and two sons, Dion (11) and Dylan (6).

America’s favorite animated family officially arrived in Orlando on May 15 when “The Simpsons Ride” celebrated its grand opening. Executive Producer James L. Brooks, Creator Matt Groening and Executive Producer Al Jean in association with 20th Century Fox Television and the creative teams of Gracie Films and Universal Theme Parks developed the world’s first authentic Simpsons mega-attraction.

Only reason it was the fastest ride to hit one million is because it is so high capcity.
