Springfield is a themed area at the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park near Los Angeles, California. The area is part of the two themed lands at Universal parks around the fictional town of the same name from the American animated sitcom, The Simpsons. It opened on May 13, 2015 adjacent to The Simpsons Ride.
Springfield was dedicated on May 13, 2015 with a special "meltdown" at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant signaling the grand opening, complete with fireworks. On hand for the event were the show's executive producer Al Jean and voice actors Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson), Yeardley Smith (Lisa Simpson) and Joe Mantegna (Fat Tony). Springfield replaced various eateries including Doc Brown's Chicken.
