The Simpsons land is a popular location for Guests to shop, enjoy attractions, and be immersed in everything related to the beloved adult cartoon.

Orlando Amusement tweeted pictures of The Simpsons Ride boarding ramp with structural cracks. Many Guests are wondering if The Simpsons will be taken out due to Universal losing the rights to The Simpsons in the near future.

The boarding ramps at The Simpsons Ride are starting to show their age. Seen below is significant structural cracking on boarding ramp 2.

Seeing these extreme cracks had gotten Universal’s attention and they responded.

“We appreciate you making us aware of this, and we will share your concerns with the proper team,” they replied.

Universal describes The Simpsons Ride as “Guest will join The Simpsons on a trip to Krustyland.” Grab a seat on an indoor simulated rollercoaster ride, where you’ll careen and crash through the park with Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie in an over-the-top non-stop exhilarating adventure. Keep an eye out for cameos from some of Springfield’s fan-favorite characters as you adventure through the town.
