RUMOR: Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure to Close Select Weekdays Due to Low Attendance
While all of the Central Florida theme parks are hurting in the aftermath of the COVID-19 shutdown, the detrimental effects are quite apparent at Universal Orlando Resort, where furloughs, park hour cuts, and hotel closures have made numerous headlines in the past few weeks.
With the closure of Volcano Bay on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting September 8, a rumor is circling amongst Team Members that the parks may be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays moving forward due to issues with low attendance, therefore pushing park attendance to the weekends and maximizing operations at the parks.
Of course, for now this is merely a rumor and not confirmed by Universal Orlando Resort, however given the recent news surrounding the resort and its parks and hotels, there is precedent for this happening. We’ll continue to monitor the situation at both parks as the reopening progresses.
