There is plenty for everyone to enjoy when visiting Universal Orlando Resort.

While Universal Guests love the thrills of rides like Jurassic World Velocicoaster, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, and The Incredible Hulk Coaster, there is still plenty of fun experiences to enjoy while visiting both Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

However, one beloved kiddie attraction might not be available for quite some time at Universal Studios Florida.

Fievel’s Playland, which is known for its oversized props, including a 30-foot spider web and a water slide has closed with no date announced for its reopening at this point.

There have been rumors for several years that the KidZone could get a makeover and while this is likely just for construction updates, there is a chance that the area could be rethemed before it reopens.

While Fievel’s Playland might be closed, the good news is that Curious George Goes To Town– including the water area and the Ball Factory– are both still open. In addition, Guests can enjoy Me Ship, The Olive and Camp Jurassic next door at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Universal’s official description  for Fievel’s Playland reads:

The Perfect Place for Mousing Around.

Inspired by the films An American Tail and Fievel Goes West, kids can explore a whimsical playground filled with oversized props. They can climb a 30-foot spider web, crawl through giant tin cans, cross swaying rope bridges, explore an enormous cowboy boot, splash in a 1,000-gallon cowboy hat and take on a twisting 200-foot water slide.
