This is my family’s first trip to USF and I’m really disappointed in the amount of down time and delays for the rides. This is our last day in the park, we’ve been here since 8am and still haven’t ridden anything today because rides keep breaking while we’re in line (it’s 1:15pm). Is this normal? It’s such a waste of time to wait in line for nothing.

Rides delayed all the time from UniversalOrlando

While in the colder months some attractions may be closed because of weather. However, when attractions normally do have delays it can be a Guest who lost a hat at an attraction, or a circuit board malfunctioned. While delays happen, Guests should remain calm while Universal Team Members are figuring out the problem and trying to get the attraction up and running as soon as possible.

If a ride is delayed, it will have to go through a process to reopen.

Keep in mind that delays at any theme park can happen, but Universal Team Members work hard to make sure that rides are both safe and ready to be experienced for Guests visiting the theme park.
