Universal Orlando Resort is constantly making changes to ensure that its theme parks stay up to date.

Sometimes, that includes closing attractions for maintenance and refurbishments.

If you’re planning a trip to Universal Orlando in the month of February, you may want to plan accordingly and know that two popular attractions will be closed for several weeks as part of scheduled maintenance.

Jurassic Park River Adventure was closed last month for nearly three weeks as the attraction underwent maintenance. Now, two more water rides at Universal’s Islands of Adventure will close.

Universal Park news that we previously reported, Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls has been drained and is currently closed for maintenance. The attraction, located in Toon Lagoon, will be closed for three weeks and won’t reopen until February 26.

The next ride to close is also in Toon Lagoon.

Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges will close on February 25 and isn’t slated to reopen until March 19. This means that on February 25, it is likely that no rides will be open in Toon Lagoon, although reopening dates and closures are subject to change.

In addition, two other attractions in Universal’s Islands of Adventure remain closed without reopening dates. Poseidon’s Fury is currently undergoing refurbishments and we’ve been told that it is possible tours could begin again in February. The Caro-Seuss-el, located in Seuss Landing, has been closed for several months and is still having work done to its roof with no timetable on when it might reopen.

Over at Universal Studios Florida, Shrek 4-D recently closed permanently and a Minions-themed attraction is expected to take its place. Revenge of the Mummy also closed in January for a lengthy refurbishment and is not expected to reopen until late summer 2022.
