It took all of my restraint to not run over the bridge toward Krustyland like a little kid. I mean, come on - it's Krustyland!!!
The path to the main ride is quite interesting - here's the view from the top, behind Krusty the Clown's head:
You can even get a peek at the dragon guarding Gringott's Bank in Diagon Alley, way off in the distance!
Jeff, Allie, and Sam, looking out over Krusty's head.
Krustyland, being a carnival, has lots of games you can play - they cost extra, but Jeff and Sam couldn't resist trying out the Sledge Homer:
The prize was a giant stuffed can of Duff beer - regardless of who won it, it would have gone home with Sam since he drove. I don't know why we bothered figuring that out, because no one won ::cue sad music::
Jeff giving it his best shot...
And Sam - they both did pretty good, but not enough to win the giant can of beer, darn it! It would have been an excellent addition to the decor at Sam's house.
Why yes, they DID wear their Duff shirts and take a picture with Duffman - when in Rome...er, Springfield, that's what you do!
Meanwhile, Allie and I found Chief Wiggum and got a picture with him:
Stealing a bite from the police chief's donut didn't land me in jail.
You can buy a real pink frosted donut there, which we did. It was delicious:
Don't worry, we didn't make Sam eat the entire thing - we shared it.
We got lunch from Bumblebee Man's Taco Truck:
I walked away to "take a picture" but if you look closely, you can see that Allie and Sam have their cards out to pay - bwahahaha, my evil plan worked!
This was some of the best food in the park - Korean beef tacos. They were fantastic!
After all of the Harry Potter rides, The Simpsons ride is my next favorite. We went on it several times - if you are prone to motion-sickness, I'd highly recommend using something to ward off nausea because otherwise, that ride will get you. But is so fun, and where else can you randomly hear as you're flying around on a virtual roller coaster, Ralph Wiggum float by saying "I'm a baby bird!" - all of these homages to the characters of Springfield are what make this section of the park so great!
