    After a short trip down the I4 - we got to Universal studios.. Only to find out it was the grand opening of the Simpsons ride.. Ohh OH! Thought it would be busy, but it honestly wasn't.

    The chairman of Universal Studios did a speech and bang.. it was open! Fireworks, confetti , ochestra with Krusty.. Really cool. We waited about 15 minutes and we were on the ride. It is brilliant! A tip though, try and get in the front row of the car.. the back row is effected a bit by the heads in the front!!
