If you’re planning a trip to Universal Orlando Resort, you might want to be aware of some attraction closures happening in the month of March.

Part of operating major theme parks is the fact that rides must close down from time to time for refurbishments, updates, and even retheming.

Here’s a look at what attractions you can expect to be closed at Universal Orlando Resort in March.

Revenge of the Mummy (Universal Studios Florida)

Revenge of the Mummy, the popular dark coaster that shut down in January, will remain closed for the month of March. As we’ve previously reported, Revenge of the Mummy is undergoing massive refurbishments and will be closed until late summer 2022. At this point, Universal Orlando has not announced if we’ll see a retheme, but there are some rumors that major changes are coming to the attraction. Some have shared rumors the ride could become a Universal Classic Monsters attraction, but with the Classic Monsters expected to be included in the all-new Epic Universe when it opens, this probably isn’t the case.

Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges (Universal’s Islands of Adventure)

Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges will close on Friday, February 25 and will not reopen until later in March. Right now, the scheduled reopening date is Saturday, March 19. Don’t expect any major retheme with this closure, this is just for scheduled maintenance.

The Caro-Seuss-el has been closed indefinitely now for over a year and will continue be closed in the month of March. The attraction is undergoing major refurbishments as it was reported it had roof issues. Right now, there is a large gray cover around the attraction, but no reopening date has been set.
