It’s a classic experience’s return that has been years in the making.

It’s been more than two years since Guests at Universal Orlando Resort have been able to enjoy the sights and sounds of Poseidon’s Fury, located in the Lost Continent at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

As a matter of fact, the entire island has basically served as a buffer between the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Hogsmeade and Seuss Landing for the past two years. The theater where the Eighth Voyage of Sindbad used to take place has essentially turned into an overflow line queue for Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.

Universal opened a Hallows Eve Boutique in the Lost Continent, but other than the shops and delicious restaurant Mythos, there has been nothing in the land to enjoy. Until today.

We previously reported that the construction walls had been removed this morning at Poseidon’s Fury and, now, we are pleased to report that the attraction is now open!

Universal Orlando describes the attraction like this:

An Explosive Undersea Adventure.

Follow an archeologist guide and venture through the ruins of the ancient Temple of Poseidon, Greek god of the sea. But once you’ve journeyed far beneath the ocean, you’re caught in a colossal battle between Poseidon and the evil Lord Darkenon. Fireballs burst, lasers flash, and water erupts around you in this spectacular special effects experience.

Now, with Poseidon’s Fury reopened, the next two Universal Orlando attractions to return from refurbishment will be Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges and then Revenge of the Mummy at Universal Studios Florida. Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges closed in February for scheduled maintenance and is expected to reopen later this week. Revenge of the Mummy closed in January and is undergoing an extensive refurbishment that will see the attraction closed until late summer 2022.
