Universal Orlando Resort is currently in the midst of refurbishing several attractions.

At Universal Studios Florida, the popular dark-coaster Revenge of the Mummy is currently closed for refurbishments. The attraction is not set to reopen until late summer 2022. Shrek 4-D recently closed permanently and a rumored Minions-themed attraction is allegedly set to take over the area. 

Universal’s Islands of Adventure has seen all three water rides– Jurassic Park River Adventure, Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls, and Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges– close for scheduled maintenance, and Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges is still currently closed. The Caro-Seuss-el is currently closed for an indefinite period of time as it undergoes major refurbishments, as well.

Perhaps the attraction that has received the most attention lately, however, is Poseidon’s Fury.

Poseidon’s Fury has been closed now for more than two years and the popular walk-through attraction located in the Lost Continent at Islands of Adventure has seen visible construction finished up.

As a matter of fact, we have good news to report.

Universal Orlando has taken down the construction walls to Poseidon’s Fury and Guests are now able to walk through the outdoor courtyard in front of the attraction.

Twitter account @insideuniversal said:

The walls are down at Poseidon’s Fury! The temple is close to reopening! @UniversalORL

While Universal has not confirmed when the attraction will reopen, there are rumors swirling on social media that it could open as soon as this week. With the walls now down and Team Members already hired, it certainly will be open sooner than later.

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.
