Universal Orlando Resort attractions are some of the best out there, and to make sure that they are always working and looking their best, Universal has a tight refurbishment schedule that makes that happen.

Interestingly enough, Universal Orlando often attempts to do what they can to keep an attraction open if a cosmetic refurbishment is happening that does not affect the ride itself. For example, we recently saw The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man receive some updates in the front facade and queue of the attraction. Although there were construction walls up, Guests were able to use an alternate entrance, and the ride was still fully operational.

We have recently discussed how Doctor Doom’s Fearfall has been undergoing a refurbishment to the caps of the attraction. If you do not know, Doctor Doom’s is a drop tower attraction that shoots Guests up and then drops them down in increments in Marvel Super Hero Island. At the top of each tower, there is decorative decor that adds to the immersive storyline of the attraction, as well as the Universal Orlando Resort skyline.

Now, it seems that the refurbishment is still underway, as the caps of the attraction which truly define its look continue to remain missing from the top of the ride. Photographer Bioreconstruct (@bioreconstruct) has recently posted some updates on the attraction’s refurbishment and where the iconic top part of Doctor Doom’s is being refurbished.

The refurbishment has now lasted over a month for the top decor on the attraction, which could mean that we will see a new and exciting change to the skyline once they are ready to be placed on top of the attraction. However, there is also a chance that the ride’s refurbishment is strictly maintenance-based.

Would you like to see further changes come to Doctor Doom’s Fearfall?
