Last night Sunday April 10th on The Simpsons “The Ride” was featured in it’s animated debut. In the episode Lisa and Marge are having problems, so they take a weekend trip to Capital City to attend a performance of Bad News Bears: The Musical. Meanwhile, Bart teams up with Maggie to trick people, after he becomes frustrated that everyone expects his pranks.
In the episode the entertainment was a dancing hotdog vender who performed for “The Ride’s” passengers.
“Becoming so much more than a Drama Desk Award nominated adventure and an iconic Times Square attraction, “The Ride” has joined the pantheon of great parodies by The Simpsons (Season 27/Episode 18), including The Graduate, The Godfather, George H.W. Bush, Barbra Streisand, James Bond, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Mary Poppins, Oprah Winfrey, Siegfried and Roy. The team at “The Ride” is honored and accepts this animated comedic tribute with all humility. We are also thrilled that the Hollywood Pop Culture Royalty has deemed “The Tour” and “The Ride” as the best ways to experience and enjoy New York City.” Richard Humphrey, CEO/CCO “The Ride” NY, LLC
The guest star was Andrew Rannells as himself. Rannells (The Book of Mormon, Hedwig) is about to appear in the revival of Falsettos.
