If you’ve visited Universal Orlando Resort lately, you’ve noticed that there’s not much to do once you get to The Lost Continent in Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Other than a few shops, meeting the Mystic Fountain, and enjoy Mythos Restaurant, the world has pretty much served as nothing more than a placeholder for the line queue at Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure when the attraction has gotten long or when lines used to be distanced to space groups out six feet apart.

That could all be changing in the future.

Poseidon’s Fury has been closed for nearly two years, but there have been small signs of a potential reopening as of late.

Scaffolding has been added around the attraction, and just this week, Universal began putting a fresh coat of paint on the outside of the building.

Repainting Begins on Poseidon’s Fury Façade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

Poseidon’s Fury is a walkthrough guided show that takes Guests on a journey through the ancient Temple of Poseidon.

Universal Orlando describes the attraction like this:

An Explosive Undersea Adventure.

Follow an archeologist guide and venture through the ruins of the ancient Temple of Poseidon, Greek god of the sea. But once you’ve journeyed far beneath the ocean, you’re caught in a colossal battle between Poseidon and the evil Lord Darkenon. Fireballs burst, lasers flash, and water erupts around you in this spectacular special effects experience.

While Universal has not announced a timeframe for the reopening of the attraction or what to expect, one thing for certain is that the Resort does intend to reopen the attraction.

There were rumors from fans previously that Universal could be potentially changing the attraction, but the repainting on the outside of the building and the fact that it has stayed completely intact tells us that Guests should expect a similar experience with, perhaps, some updated technology when it does reopen.
