Universal Studios Florida

Universal Studios Florida was the first theme park for Universal in Central Florida. Now, the Universal Orlando Resort is gearing up to open a brand new theme park, Epic Universe. You can read the latest construction update on Epic Universe here.

There are only two attractions/shows at Universal Studios Florida that will be closed in September:

  • Curious George Goes to Town
  • FEAR FACTOR LIVE

The Fear Factor Live stage is the home of an all-new show for Halloween Horror Nights this year, which is why that continues to be closed.

Universal’s Islands of Adventure has a few surprising closers this month!

  • Caro-Seuss-el™
  • The Nighttime Lights At Hogwarts™ Castle
  • Poseidon’s Fury

Unfortunately, the Nighttime Lights At Hogwarts Castle is temporarily unavailable in September. This is a show that adds great entertainment to the Islands of Adventure in the evenings. We hope to see this return soon.

With all of these refurbishments, it is important to remember that any attraction or show is subject to close unexpectedly due to poor weather, or technical difficulties. Also, anything on this list could reopen before the end of September.

What is important to your vacation is that you continue checking the Universal Orlando Resort app on the day you plan to enter the park for the most up-to-date operational status of any ride or show in the theme park.
