Do you think they will have a "Yard Full of Rakes" attraction?

Moe's really should been darker and dingier, but I could see why you might not want to have an actual dive bar in your theme park.

Moe's is a little too bright but you can order a Flaming Moe, so I'm pretty sold.

What about shooting Apu? Is that part of the tour?

When I go, I'm just going to buy cartons and cartons of Laramie cigarettes.

Also, they might want to consider not actually spitting in every 50th Krusty Burger.

I'm looking for a beer. Is Moe's still the best damn pet shop in town?

This promises to be really really good for the first eight years or so, then depressingly awful.

With actual cough syrup? Purple Drank at a theme park actually sounds kinda interesting.

What's funny is that Kwik-E-Mart, Moe's and Krusty Burger were all supposed to be disgusting (at least in the early episodes). Those locations, like the show itself, got cleaned up.

So, at Moe's, can I get million dollar birthday fries?
posted by The Whelk at 4:58 PM on June 7, 2013


No million dollar birthday fries, no Aerosmith, no pints of lukewarm Guinness, no Formico, and no Neil Patrick Hairless.

More pictures here, too.

They should have explained away the sparkling cleanliness of Moe's by going with an Uncle Moe's Family Feedbag approach.

Also, I saw Simpsons-themed Duff Beer being sold by the case in Naples when I was there in '09... I wonder if it's going to be the same thing, or if that was a Naples Thing, along with guys on motorscooters trying to sell you iPhones.

The Flaming Moe glass is really ingenious. It's got a little perforated chamber of dry ice in the bottom so the liquid bubbles and steams.

There's something very sad about a pristine plexi-glass covered pool table.

I visited Universal Islands of Adventure for Harry Potter earlier this year, and I came home with this keychain, so I guess, yeah, I am the target demographic for this theme park. Probably I will feel vaguely disappointed that it isn't as thorough or as big as Disney would have done it (I mean, no monorail?! come on).

I really want the Sideshow Bob mascot to sing Gilbert and Sullivan tunes upon request.

Also, Whacking Day arcade game.

OK, I'm going to need about 10 hits of acid for me and my +1. Put that in a Visine bottle with a little saline. I'm in Texas, so I figure by about the time I hit the Georgia-Florida border, we'll start dropping those in both eyes. We may get arrested in Florida, however, it'll be worth it. Also, I'll be wearing a mattress that says FLORE-DUH.

Moe's is backwards. The door is supposed to be at the other end of the bar.
