Video: Tour amazing Simpsons' Springfield at Universal Orlando

Universal Orlando held a media preview of its new Simpsons-themed Springfield street on Thursday, and we were there to get a tour.

Now open, the attraction lets you walk the streets of Springfield, grab a Krusty Burger, eat doughnuts at Lard Lad, imbibe at Moe's Tavern and drink Homer's favorite, Duff Beer — brewed exclusively for Universal Orlando.

The park also added a new ride called Kang & Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl, an outdoor spinner ride that resembles Disney's Dumbo ride. Kang and Kodo are the recurring space aliens from the planet Rigel IV who appear in most of the "Treehouse of Horror" episodes.

Take our video tour with tbt* editor Jay Cridlin, our certified Simpsons fanatic, and see what he thinks of the Doh!-main.
