Universal is home to a plethora of exciting attractions between its two theme parks and one water park. That being said, with the attractions running year-round it is important for them to undergo maintenance to continue to run smoothly for Guests visiting the resort.

Additionally, some of the attractions that are closed are apart of the advanced health and safety precautions during the pandemic. You will notice many of the high-touch areas, such as children’s play areas, are closed at this time.

We got this information straight from Universal, but like everything in theme parks, the details are subject to change. Be sure to continue to check your Universal app when you visit the park for the most up-to-date status of any attraction!

Volcano Bay has no refurbishments scheduled for April!

Additionally, Universal is gearing up to open a brand new attraction — the VelociCoaster at Islands of Adventure and it looks incredible! You can see the new coaster which has been testing heavily during park hours — very exciting. Universal has not yet given a firm opening date for VelociCoaster, but we know it is coming this summer.
