Since the ride is still in technical rehearsals for the weekend, there is really no definite answer to that question. So far they have been soft opening the ride every day, but that doesn't mean they will on Sunday. If you really want to ride, I would suggest hanging out by the ride and asking the crew members.

Two of my favorite 7 or 8 things in life are theme parks and the Simpsons. I just wish I could get excited about this ride. I guess the fact that I thought Back To the Future was super-lame contributes to that feeling a bit.

He's in the queue video.

The ride officially opens May 19th. So far it has soft opened every day since Wednesday though...

Orlando's was open for a little more than a week before the real opening, so I assumed we would do that too.

Ahhh...The good ole Tooth Chipper @ Duff Gardens! I remember that episode...one of my all-time favorites! Lisa drinking the water on the "It's a Small World" spinoff ride and she starts tripping to Jefferson Airplane!! :lmao:

It has been a while since I have seen this one, but isn't this also the one where the whole family ends up in the park jail??

Anyone happen to know what season DVD this is on??

^ ah, I saw that episode like 4 days ago! I LOVE THAT EPISODE!
The name of the episode is "Selma's Choice". It was in the 4th Season DVD. That's also the episode that you learn about the SEVEN DUFS!
Queasy, Surly, Remorseful, Tipsy, Sleazy, Edgy and....Dizzy I think.

The episode where they all end up in the parks jail is the Itchy and Scratchy Land one. Lisa goes crazy from drinking the water and Bart gets stuck on the "Barrel Roll" ride because he was too short.

The Tooth Chipper, along with the Screamatorium and the Yard Work Simulator (which also have posters in the ride) came from the episode where Homer and Bart become carnys.

I just rode it while it was in technical rehearsal yesterday, and it was great! I loved it, and I agree with Rob. It was a nice addition and an amazing atmosphere.

Wow, that looks really cool. This looks like a good reason to pick up a season pass this year.

I think they have a good opportunity here to alter the attraction into the "Treehouse of Horror" for HHN as well. Certainly would help with those crazy HHN lines.

Ahhh yes, you are correct! They are in two different episodes. I remember both now, but it has been a really long time since I have seen either of them. I do remember Itchy and Scratchy Land and the carny one being in two different episodes. But wasn't there a Duff Gardens episode too, or am I dreaming this??

Thanks for the clarifications and DVD disc numbers, guys! I will just have to start borrowing the DVD's from my father...I think that he has just about all of them now!
