Ride historyEdit

Progress on The Simpsons Ride began two years before opening, in 2006. Creators of the popular show teamed up with Universal Creative to help develop the motion simulator. Music for the ride was composed by the composer who composed music for the show's movie. In 2007, both of the Back to the Future rides in Hollywood and Florida closed, and construction was begun.
