They’re going to put a family raft ride in its place, as far as I know. Called Miss Fortune Falls.

Sooooo true. It’s pathetic considering the large crowds and
our last visit so much closed. Even at resort, 2 lanes of 25 open and 70 minute wait for check in. Many restaurants or large sections of them closed….still long waits. Sad.

Sad to see this go! With some effort they could create the new ride around and even above the Shark reef.

You totally lost WDW in Orlando saying “with some effort”. To My family’s dispair we’ve noticed zero effort for something “above”, only lots of new stores and promo oops. Few rides left that not a promo and so many closed. cast members could care less and more there to pack more people in few shows and rides left. If we heard ‘move over even if there’s on half inch between you and guest next to you, if you can’t smell them you’re not close enough” one more time we were going to scream!!!! Obvious management change there :(

It is actually smaller than alot of other parks. Luckily I was just there yesterday and had the opportunity to experience it one last time before its gone. Shark reef closing is just one of many reasons I will not be back. From the very first attempt to enter hollywood studios my bands did not work. I made 4 attempts causing a great loss in time to enjoy… Read more »
