The Kwik-E-Mart opens on August 17 at 10 a.m. Guests may visit the immersive, fully themed iconic convenience store, which sells a wide array of products including Buzz Cola, Heat-Lamp Hot Dogs, and Lard Lad Donuts. Guests can quench their thirst by choosing from a tasty selection of show-inspired Squishee flavors. In addition to these Springfield staples, the Kwik-E-Mart offers a variety of food and beverage options, as well as unique The Simpsons merchandise.
The Aztec Theater is set to premiere later this year. This ticketed attraction includes a fully themed lobby and theater experience rich with detail. Guests join Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and the youngest Simpson, Maggie in a new 4D Experience® adventure.
