When Guests visit Universal Orlando Resort, there are two fantastic theme parks that they can see: Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida. Although both are fantastic, Islands of Adventure take the cake when we talk about what Park has the most attractions that Guests can enjoy.

The theme Park has a wide variety of attractions from slow-moving, dark rides and ultimate thrills. Islands of Adventure is comprised of the following lands:

  • Jurassic Park
  • The Lost Continent
  • Marvel Super Hero Island
  • Port of Entry
  • Seuss Landing
  • Skull Island: Reign of Kong
  • Toon Lagoon
  • The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade

When Guests visit, each of these lands will likely make their jaws hit the floor, but there is one that is somewhat lacking luster due to the minimal offerings. The Lost Continent is themed to perfection and is one of my favorite lands to walk through, and at the moment, that is really all you can do. The Eighth Voyage of Sinbad, a theater show that the land had, closed before the pandemic leaving Poseidon’s Fury alone to entertain Guests.

The attraction has yet to come back to life since the pandemic began, and now, the construction walls that went up a while ago remain in place. The ride has been under refurbishment for quite some time, and from what we can see, the refurbishment will only continue. From what we can see on Universal’s refurbishment calendar, which only shows through to October, Poseidon’s Fury will remain closed.

Inside Universal (@insideuniversal) shared a photo of the location recently, and as you can see, construction walls surround the entire attraction. That being said, the facade, which is taller than the walls, seems not to have any significant work being done to it. Since the exterior is blocked off, there likely will be some sort of refurbishment on the facade.

Universal has not announced a new attraction in its place at the moment, and since the facade seems to remain untouched, it seems unlikely that the ride will be removed completely, but rather, some updates and maintenance will be done.

Stay tuned to Inside the Magic for the latest updates on everything Universal!
