Poseidon’s Fury at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

2. Poseidon’s Fury Open 

After a year and a half of being closed, Poseidon’s Fury reopened to guests on March 14 in Lost Continent at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. We were there for the first archaeological expedition since August 2020, and every element of the attraction seemed sharper and better than ever! As of right now, the attraction seems to be closing before official park hours closure. While there aren’t attraction times listed on the app, Poseidon’s Fury has been closing around 6:30 on many nights. 

Here’s everything you need to know about Poseidon’s Fury

3. TRON Officially Running Ride Vehicles 

Goodbye phase one, hello phase two! In Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom, TRON Lightcycle / Run has started officially testing ride vehicles! In this testing phase, ride vehicles are undergoing push/pull testing by Disney Imagineers. The attraction has yet to send ride vehicles off at full speed, but we can’t wait to see what this coaster looks like at full throttle! 

We can’t wait to see what this attraction looks like when complete!
