It was announced in mid-April that Poseidon's Fury would permanently close at Universal's Islands of Adventure at the end of the day on May 9, to make way for "exciting new experiences,". Universal has still not divulged any further information regarding what these exciting new experiences will consist of but many speculations are already beginning to circulate online.
We have explored a number of the rumors of possible replacements in our recent featured article, Here Are 3 Rumored Replacements! The leading theory as of right now is a potential Legend of Zelda experience to take over the Lost Continent area.
