Has anybody figured out anything on the Gringott's coaster opening next year? Manufacturer? Layout? Anything interesting?

All I could find were these pictures:

Two more houses! :b

Witness the brutal vengeance of his victims as they turn his afterlife into an inescapable hell...

This fall, 2000 volts of electricity are going to send serial killer, Bobby “The Blade” Galleta into a horrific realm of suffering at HHN23 in this new, original haunted house, Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance

WARNING: In this all-new original house the train convoy has derailed and the bloodthirsty maniacs are loose.

Escaping them this time will be a hard feat…the “Dogs of War” return to HHN23 in this sequel house, Havoc 2: Derailed.

If anyone is interested, I've posted my trip report to IoA in my trip report thread. The link is in my signature.

My favorite ride was Spiderman, with HPFJ a close second.

Today we were invited to Universal Orlando to check out the new Simpsons "Springfield" expansion which has now officially opened.

I have to say that we were completely impressed! If you are a fan of the quirky and awesome Simpsons humor (who isn't?) this new expansion does not disappoint!

You'll recognize very iconic Simpsons landmarks you've seen in many episodes, Universal have created 28 new food items specific to the area including Duff Beer, Lard Lad Donuts, Cleatus' Chicken n Waffles, and of course the Flaming Moe.

The new family ride "Kang & Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl" is full of Simpsons humor!

Overall, the new expansion is a huge win for the park!

Lets check out some photos...

Welcome to Springfield! Let's have a look around the new Simpsons expansion at Universal Studios Orlando!

image.jpg
Elissa pays tribute to one of Springfield's finest!

image.jpg
Probably one of our personal favorite areas of the new expansion was the "Duff Beer Garden!" Duff Beer was created specially for the park and there is a regular Duff Beer, a Duff Beer Lite, and a darker brew.

image.jpg
"Check it out... it's me and Surely!"

image.jpg
When it comes to food in Springfield, Universal made 28 unique items only found in this park! Fantastic!

image.jpg
"Welcome to Moe's!" Oh, wait...

image.jpg
If you know Simpsons, you know how much Homer LOOOOOOVES his donuts! These did not disappoint!

image.jpg
You can get a "Flaming Moe" inside Moe's Tavern as well as at the Duff Beer Garden. It's sort of like a bubbling "Orange Soda" on steroids!


image.jpg
One of these two pictured is flaming. One of them is not. Do you know which is which?

image.jpg
Here is the "bar" inside Moe's...

image.jpg
Today the pool table will be covered with food. Is that such a bad thing?

image.jpg
Lisa's Caprese Salad is Elissa approved!

image.jpg
"I am officially afraid of this machine!"

image.jpg
"I tried to give Barney a giant donut... but all he wanted is some more beer!"

image.jpg
Here is the menu for the Flaming Moe bar.

image.jpg
The cupcakes were delicious! Especially the cake batter one with the gooey middle! Yum!

image.jpg
Krusty Burgers or Krabby Patties? Which do you prefer?

image.jpg
Krusty Burger menu! You will not get buyers remorse if you buy the Ribwich!

image.jpg
"Sideshow Bob was spotted in the town, but I tapped him and got some money and XP!"

image.jpg
Kwik-E-Mart was built when The Simpsons ride was originally put in, but it's still just as iconic.

image.jpg
Kang & Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl is filled with awesome Simpsons humor at Universal Orlando!

image.jpg
Chief Wiggum is always on patrol in Springfield.

image.jpg
Chicken & Waffles in here were great!

image.jpg
Bumblebee Man food truck! lmao! (The tacos were good, too!)

image.jpg
Mike West played a very important role bringing The Simpsons to life, and this new area really shows off the property VERY well! Great job!

^But does it "warm you like a hug"?

Springfield looks great--I'm glad Universal has increased the Simpsons' presence in the park.
