Several Universal Orlando Resort Attractions to Temporarily Close Beginning August 9

With the reopening of Orlando theme parks, many attractions have remained closed in order to better enforce social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning August 9, even more attractions will close temporarily at Universal Orlando Resort.

The following attractions will be temporarily closed:

  • A Day in the Park with Barney
  • Fear Factor Live
  • Fast & Furious: Supercharged
  • Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl
  • Poseidon’s Fury
  • Storm Force Accelatron

As a stage show with live actors, Fear Factor Live has been closed since the parks reopened. The rest of the attractions have been operating with social distancing guidelines and disinfecting procedures.

Storm Force Accelatron and Poseidon’s Fury are two popular attractions that can run when it is raining, so this could cause limited attraction availability for guests during storms. Fast & Furious: Supercharged, though it is one of Universal Orlando’s newest attractions, has been highly criticized and rarely has a wait.

There is no timeline for when these attractions will hopefully be reopening. All Team Members at these attractions will be transferred to other locations.

Gee, it almost seems like they are going under with the layoffs and closures. So sad.

Fast & Furious is horrible! They should close it permanently and bring something else in it’s place. Someone really was lacking when coming up with that one!
