Poseidon's Fury at Universal Orlando to permanently close in May

Say goodbye to Poseidon's Fury at Universal Orlando Resort in Florida.

The live-action attraction will have its last show on Wednesday, May 10, a spokesperson for Universal Orlando Resort confirmed to FOX 35 in an email.

Universal did not provide a reason for the show's ending, but said the closure comes as the resort prepares for "exciting new experiences."

Details on what could possibly replace that experience were not immediately known or released. 


For those who have not been before, Poseidon's Fury is located in Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park. 

It's a live-action show that follows an archeologist guide through the ruins of the ancient Temple of Poseidon, Greek god of the sea, according to Universal Orlando's website.

Along the journey, audience members are caught in a battle between Poseidon and the evil Lord Darkennon. The experience includes lasers, flames and water special effects.

Universal Orlando also announced that the park's nighttime show on Hogwarts Castle would undergo an "extended closure" on May 10 to undergo future show enhancements.

Universal did not announce what those enhancements would be nor when the show would start again.
