The Caro-Seuss-el, located in Seuss Landing at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, reportedly saw significant damage to its roof and that led to a closure that has lasted several months.

Twitter account @bioreconstruct recently posted photos of the roof work happening at the Caro-Seuss-el.

The attraction is currently listed as temporarily closed on Universal’s website and there is no announced date for reopening. It is one of three attractions– Poseidon’s Fury and Revenge of the Mummy being the other two– that are currently temporarily closed.

Universal Orlando’s official description of the Caro-Seuss-el reads:

A Merry-Go-Round from the Mind of Dr. Seuss.

Not only can you climb aboard a creative cast of Dr. Seuss characters, you can make their eyes blink, ears wiggle and heads turn. Little ones will love this sensationally Seussian twist on the classic carnival ride. If you look up high, you’ll see Horton the Elephant carefully guarding his special dandelion and its microscopic inhabitants.

A Fanciful First

Caro-Seuss-el was the first carousel of its kind to feature creatures that you control. Animate them by pulling on the reigns or pushing the lever on their necks.

A Classic Cast of Characters

Some of the characters you can ride include elephant birds from Horton Hatches the Egg, cowfish from McElligot’s Pool, Mulligatawnies from If I Ran the Zoo, and more.
