One of the most infamous rides at the Universal Orlando Resort has been confirmed to be closing later this summer.

Fast and Furious: Supercharged, located at Universal Studios Florida, will close temporarily starting in August and remain closed throughout the Halloween Horror Nights season.

According to the Universal Studios Florida operating calendar, the attraction will be closed from August 19 through November 3, 2024.

Fast and Furious: Supercharged closes 11 days before the start date of Halloween Horror Nights and is expected to reopen after. Previously, the attraction was operational during the day but would be closed during Halloween Horror Nights events.

Now, Universal Orlando has chosen to completely close the ride for three months. Universal has reportedly been looking to save money ahead of Epic Universe, and Fast and Furious: Supercharged may be something easy to cut due to its unpopularity among guests.

Fast and Furious: Supercharged was closed for several weeks in 2020 due to low attendance and it’s considered one of the worst theme park rides ever by fans. Over the last few years, part of the building has been used for a Halloween Horror Nights house. We’ve already seen an HHN house under construction in the extended queue.

We previously reported on rumors that the ride would close for the annual Halloween event, with the potential for the ride to close permanently. Though Universal released an end date for the closure, it’s always possible things could change.

Men in Black: Alien Attack is expected to close for refurbishment on November 4, 2024, so it’s possible that Universal Orlando will only reopen Fast and Furious: Supercharged to alleviate crowds during the holidays. After those crowds are gone, the attraction may close permanently sometime next year.

At this time, these are just rumors and speculations, but be sure to stay tuned for more updates.
