I just don't want him to get hyped up if for nothing
The Simpsons ride opened in Spring 2008, so there really is no need for refurbs yet.

I went on JP yesterday and it was alright -- though some things weren't working. Today, someone on FB is claiming it's closed again. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

My wait time app says it has a wait, but those things can never truly be trusted.

Hi, I'm new here. Going to US for our third time this summer in 19 days (but who's counting?). My girls loved the Jimmy Neutron ride last year. If anyone has been recently, is it running? TIA

Get it while you can if it's still open. Despicable Me will be replacing it in 2012. I hope your girls get to ride it one last time.

Just booked....

... for August 2012! My first trip and I can't wait!

Can anyone let me know what/if anything is due to be closed for this period?

Thanks in advance!

As far as I'm aware, Jimmy Neutron is now closed forever. They are refurbishing it as we speak. It will reopen as Despicable Me sometime next year, but as you can imagine, the refurbishment and retheming process takes a long while, which is why they closed the attraction in its Jimmy Neutron incarnation this spring.
