Universal Orlando Resort is home to many incredible attractions and experiences.

Over at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, we’ve seen several attractions close down for scheduled maintenance, including popular water rides.

Jurassic Park River Adventure closed in January for a three-week period and just a day after it reopened, Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls closed for maintenance. The Toon Lagoon attraction has been closed since January 31st and the expectation was that it would reopen today, February 26.

Unfortunately, that has not happened as of yet.

While Universal Orlando Resort has made the majority of updates, it seems that it is still finishing up the work and that the attraction will be delayed slightly.

Universal was supposed to close Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges on Friday, February 25 for its scheduled maintenance period, but with Dudley Do-Right still experiencing closure, the other water attraction in Toon Lagoon has stayed close. Universal told Inside the Magic that the expectation is for Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges to close on Monday, February 28.

This is a look at the Universal Orlando Resort app currently:

If that is the case, we would expect Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls to reopen on that day, though nothing has been confirmed.

There is so much to see and do at Universal Orlando Resort. Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack, Transformers: The Ride, Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, E.T. Adventure Ride, and more can all be found at Universal Studios Florida. Islands of Adventure has some fantastic attractions, as well, like The Incredible Hulk Coaster, Doctor Doom’s Fearfall, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, Jurassic Park River Adventure, the all-new Jurassic World Velocicoaster, Skull Island: Reign of Kong and more!
