The Fear Factor Live show has returned for the summer season at Universal Studios Florida, defying rumors that it was closed for good.
The return of Fear Factor Live was reported by Screamscape and confirmed by park visitors on the IOACentral.com forums. Performances started over the weekend, with the show's run rumored to end on August 4, 2010. It is the first time the show has returned to operation since being closed ahead of Universal's Halloween Horror Nights last September.
Fear Factor Live has been cut to a minimal operational schedule, and currently only runs during the very busiest periods of the year at Universal Orlando. The show has already been closed permanently at sister park Universal Studios Hollywood.
Based on the popular TV show, Fear Factor Live sees a select few guests competing in "terrifying" stunts in front of a live audience.
