Goodbye, Jimmy! Universal Orlando to close Jimmy Neutron Ride

Fans of the chicken dance have until April 1 to ride the simulator on a daily basis, with periodic openings throughout the spring and summer tourist seasons. The Nickelodean-based ride will close for good in August 2011.

The ride will be replaced with an as-yet-unknown attraction that Universal says will be a "natural fit...[indicative of] many exciting things planned for the next couple of years."

Reaction to the closing has ranged from indifferent to pleased -- seems Jimmy wasn't a popular lad in recent years, so most people are fine with the attraction closing. Hopefully, whatever replaces it will prove more timeless with more park guests.
