    Sad day bye SHERK

  2. Trina

    I am so sad, I am a very big fan of Shrek. I am so glad I had the opportunity to ride it this past December while visiting.

    1. Roger

      Big Mistake.

    Meh!

    Can you please stop sensationalizing the titles of your articles. Shrek closing down is not a “tragedy”. A tragedy is something where there is loss of life or suffering. Please stop using words like “tragedy” and “catastrophe” (saw that one the other day in another of your articles), just to garner attention to your news stories. You are mocking real tragedies and real suffering. WDW fans will read your stories without the hype.

    1. CJ

      Yup. I saw that with another article. I guess “tragically” is the new “litereraly” now.

    2. Agreed, this is one attraction that isn’t a tragedy to lose. Although my kid might be disappointed next time we go, it will be a quick moment of silence on the way to Diagon Alley.

      1. Sarah

        I think using the word tragically is a bit much.. It’s just a stupid ride

    3. John

      Totally agree. Nothing tragic about this. It’s literally business as usual at any theme park.
      ITM has gone downhill since Ricki left.
      Y’all should do better.

      1. Juice me

        Exactly!

    4. Why don’t you just zip your lip?! No one wants to hear your squawking!!!!

    Shrek 4-D was alright for its era …. but folks want an Attraction that’s equivalent to a Ride (anyone truly upset is probably toting a toddler on a stroller and is regretting the fact there is no longer a sit-down theatre where they can take their toddler to).

    DreamWorks has plenty of intellectual property they can use to create a new experience (other words it doesn’t have to be just Shrek)….

    Opinion – what is really a tragedy is the fact we still have a pandemic going on and people are dying in hospitals!

    1. Kate

      If you need recommendations for the next one to shut down please let it be the Fast and Furious “ride.” That one was a snooze fest and by the 30th “we are family” quote I was ready to throw myself from the bus.

      1. MichelleT

        Agree!!

      2. Lawrence Blake

        Just got back from universal…not impressed with any of it,even Harry Potter….

    2. There is no “pandemic” going on here!!! It’s a Flu virus variant. And, people are NOT dying in hospitals.

  6. Norman J McNary

    I agree!!!!!! Shrek closing down is not a “tragedy”. A tragedy is something where there is loss of life or suffering. Please stop using words like “tragedy” and “catastrophe” (saw that one the other day in another of your articles), I don’t want to be mean but, I think look up what the words “tragedy” and “catastrophe” meen and use them properly in the future.

    I hated that ride. Bye! It can go along with the Jimmy Kimmel ride!!

    1. Kimmel has a ride?

      1. Juice me

        LoL. Exactly

    2. Laura Ann Mai

      The Fallon ride was my favorite!! It was so much fun. Fast and furious was gawd awful. I’m glad I was able to be one of the last ones to ride Shrek yesterday.

    3. Vicki Elkins

      It’s Jimmy Fallon, not Kimmel.

  8. Cid

    I guess “tragically” is now the new “literally”.

    1. Kate

      If you need recommendations for the next one to shut down please let it be the Fast and Furious “ride.” That one was a snooze fest and by the 30th “we are family” quote I was ready to throw myself from the bus.

    On Amazon, one can purchase the Shrek 3D dvd; it’s the same as featured in this attraction. Modern home theater technology even VR has come a long way.

    I would’ve preferred Universal to shut down Fast & Furious and the Jimmy Fallon ride before they touched Shrek. Both are awful and there’s far too many screen based rides in Universal now.
    At least Shrek could appeal to the whole family.

    1. Laura Ann Mai

      Fallon was the best of all of the virtual. Fast and furious was so bad

  11. Roxanne

    Been to both universal theme parks,I prefer shrek over Kung fu panda . Heck I enjoyed terminator as well. But virtual rides are cheaper and taking over. So I’m guessing another virtual show. Oh well.

    Can you please stop sensationalizing the titles of your articles. Its used too much in the titles of all articles lately by this author. I seen amazing, outstanding, horrible, and tragedy, and more being used.

  13. Giselle

    Actually, Shrek will be coming back. Their plan for that attraction is to play many different Dreamwork movies, hence why the outside of the attraction is a movie theater now.

  14. Nick Stasiak

    No big deal, that space housed something before Shrek and will house something after Shrek.
    Yes, F&F is a terrible ride, a huge disappointment, great potential rendered moot.
    The KK and Fallon attractions, despite a generally better overall look, are nearly as bad.
    But, worst of all, is the writing on this site!

  15. Q

    It actually closed yesterday (1/9) and this article made it sound like it closes today. So we missed out on riding it yesterday.

  16. Kids might miss it. The biggest loss to me EVER was Jaws! That was a masterpiece if ever there was one! I haven’t been back since.

  17. Vanette Hines

    Hey this not good my grands love shrek that’s why I have season tickets, now how I’m going explain this to all 6 of them, can I get a refund!!!

  18. Vanette Hines

    Shut down fast and furious that ride was awful, not shrek, that was family isn’t this why Disney Disney for the familY! Foreal!

    1. Jamie

      That one was truly awful, too. Definitely a missed opportunity for an exciting ride, considering the movies.

  19. J.

    Damn! It’s been me and my partner’s first stop every since we began visiting over a decade ago. It’s been such a huge part of our relationship! 🥺 Add Rumple and his goose, do something…honk.

  20. Beth

    I don’t understand why it has to be shut down. Why not keep it and add the Kung fu Panda All the money and conglomeration Disney has become they could keep building and adding all the time. Shrek is one of the coolest ! Love it❤️🤷‍♀️❤️

  21. SG

    This is awful news, children and old people will miss this. We went 2 weeks ago and loved it. Hopefully they’ll replace it with something family friendly. There are very few rides/attractions that this demographic can manage. Think about it: What can you do with Grandma, Grampa and your 5 year old at both parks?

  22. Andrea Conti

    I love the Shrek movies and enjoyed the ride. It’s sad when they close a ride and don’t put an exciting ride in its place.

  23. Jamie

    It’s not tragic. That ride, if you can even call it that, is horrifically boring. It’s right at the front of the park, too, so you’re mad at yourself for wasting valuable time on it when you could have kept going and invested the time in waiting for a ride that is actually fun.
