We noticed a few weeks ago an iconic piece of Universal Studios vanished, and as of today, it is still missing.

Over the past few months, we have covered everything that has closed or gone missing from Universal Studios Orlando, specifically with attractions such as Revenge of the Mummy and, to many Guests’ dismay, Shrek-4D. Unfortunately, unlike Revenge of the Mummy, Shrek-4D will not be returning as it is permanently closed.

It also seems that work is being done on a staple of the Universal Resort in Orlando, with the welcome sign still completely missing. We covered recently that some work was  being done on the entrance sign that Guests see when they first come in, and now it seems Universal has opted to completely remove it, as shown in a tweet from Inside Universal (@insideuniversal):

We are unsure why Universal removed the sign or why it is still missing, but we hope it returns soon, along with all of the other missing attractions at the Park. As stated earlier, Universal has been very busy as of late refurbishing attractions, including Jurassic Park River Adventure, Dudley Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls, and Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges, all of these rides are now open once again. In addition, Revenge of the Mummy is currently undergoing a lengthy refurbishment period that will see the attraction closed until late summer 2022. Poseidon’s Fury just reopened after a two-year closure, and the Caro-Seuss-el is also undergoing massive refurbishments.
