If you are heading to Universal Orlando Resort in the next few days, it is essential to know what attractions will be available for Guests to ride and experience, as well as which will not be.

Like any theme park, Universal Orlando Resort will have to refurbish its rides from time to time. Since both Universal Studios, Florida, and Islands of Adventure are open year-round, this means that refurbishments will have to happen while Guests are in the Park. At times a refurbishment can be very short, while others can take much longer. For example, Revenge of the Mummy will be closing down for multiple months next year, while other refurbishments may only last a few days.

Now, a new refurbishment has been added to Universal’s calendar. At the moment, Fast And Furious – Supercharged is currently closed and under refurbishment. Luckily for Guests looking to ride the attraction soon, it will be up and running again by November 11, experiencing only a four-day closure.

At the moment, we do not know exactly what is being done to the attraction. Still, given its very short and limited closure, it seems likely that it will only be some maintenance work that would take more time than just one evening, but nothing dramatic as four days is much too short for any major changes to the attraction.

Universal Orlando Resort describes Fast And Furious – Supercharged as:

Join The Family. Join The Ride.
Join the crew for an immersive Fast & Furious experience. Step into an amazing re-creation of the crew’s headquarters filled with actual movie props and supercharged vehicles you’ve only seen on the big screen. Ride along with Dom, Letty, Hobbs and Roman on a street chase in the middle of the high-octane world of the Fast & Furious blockbuster films.

If you are visiting Universal Orlando Resort, please be aware of the current, ongoing, or upcoming refurbishment closures, as listed below.

  • Curious George Goes to Town
  • Fast And Furious – Supercharged: 11/8 – 11/11
  • Revenge Of The Mummy: 1/7/2022 – Late Summer 2022 for scheduled maintenance

In early 2022, Shrek 4-D will be closing its doors for good, as the attraction will shut down permanently, as will the show Fear Factor LIVE.
