PHOTOS: Caro-Seuss-el Abruptly Closes for Refurbishment, No Reopening Date Set at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

Today, on a trip to Universal’s Islands of Adventure, we were surprised to find Caro-Seuss-el closed. While the ride is currently not scheduled for a temporary closure on the official schedule, Team Members informed us that structural repairs are needed.


Team Members reported that no firm reopening date has been set, estimating “weeks” at least, and that Universal hopes to have the ride operational by the Christmas season.


Temporary barriers blockade the ride’s entrances and exits.


The Caro-Seuss-el is a fun twist on the classic carrousel, with a multicolored menagerie of fantastical creatures.


Team Members said the ride itself is operational; the problem lies within the structure it sits beneath.


At least one issue is clearly visible as a large crack in the roof is covered with a tarp.


Atop the roof sits Horton and his dust speck from “Horton Hears a Who.” We hope this fun feature stays after the repairs are complete.

  1. On Sunday, looking from the trolley train the roof looked like it had a bunch of new cracks, and that pictured bandage was there. I thought it looked to be in bad shape. I guess it really is. Probably not going to be a quick fix.
