Poseidon's Fury, Universal

UPDATE March 25 - Poseidon's Fury still appears to be having problems, with a number of guests posting online that they have been unable to experience the recently reopened attraction due to closures. We are unaware of the details of why Poseidon's Fury is having this unexpected downtime but we are hoping the issues will be sorted as soon as possible so guests can rely on being able to experience this attraction when they visit the park. 

UPDATE March 22 - Poseidon's Fury has been closed the last two days (March 20 and 21). The exact reason for these closures is unknown. This recently reopened walk through attraction is set to reopen at 9:00AM today with the rest of the park according to the Universal Orlando Resort App.

UPDATE March 15 - Poseidon's Fury is now open at Universal's Islands of Adventure. On the official website it is scheduled to be open at 8:00AM today.

UPDATE February 11 - Water has been spotted running over the Poseidon's Fury sign outside the attraction at Universal's Islands of Adventure this week. This gives us further hope that a reopening date is imminent.

It was originally announced back in August 2020 that Poseidon's Fury along with a number of other rides would stop operating at Universal's Islands of Adventure because of a lack of foot traffic due to capacity caps when the park reopened after COVID-19 closures.

Back in February, there was a rumor from Inside The Magic that we could see this walk-through attraction reopening soon. This attraction has undergone a major refurbishment so it will be interesting to see what updates have been made.

It was also reported that characters from the experience had been seen outide the entrance and one Team Member shared the information that Poseidon's Fury could start operating again very soon. This certainly was exciting news for fans of the attraction.

On March 15, Poseidon's Fury reopened at Universal's Islands of Adventure after two years of being shuttered. Within less than a week, the walk through attraction was closed on Saturday March 20 and Sunday March 21 for an unknown reason.

Although Poseidon's Fury reopened on March 22, guests have still be reporting online closures this week which means the issue isn't still completely fixed. We are hoping Universal can rectify the problem so this recently reopened attraction can get back to smooth operations very soon.

Poseidon's Fury is located in The Lost Continent area of Universal's Islands of Adventure. Led by a skiddish archaeologist and trapped in a tomb by Poseidon's evil nemesis, this multi-room, guided walking tour brings you face to face with unimaginable water and fire effects as the race for Atlantis begins.

We will keep you posted on any further updates. Let us know your thoughts on the return of this attraction by leaving us a comment below or on our Facebook page.
