Yeah. Its odd. Usually when they are done with the show for that period, they just deflate the balloons, and leave everything there. It was odd that the barges were completely wiped clean, and I think at least 1 is gone.

I know the 1 that is closest to Mels, had problems the last time we saw it about 2 weeks ago. Only 1 side of the screen was working.

"Summer 2012" is as specific as the official Universal announcements have gotten.

we are also hitting up US and IOA for November 12-16 and were hoping nothing would be closed then any chance of that happening?

we know that we'll be there while the whole celebration of harry potter films is on, so we are anticipating huge crowds... hoping to not compound that by closed rides as well

I just saw on the Universal site that Cat in the Hat is closed for seasonal maintenance. Does anyone have any idea when it is expected to re-open. My little ones love that ride.

Where are you seeing these closures on the Universal site? I don't see anything listed under the Cat in the Hat Ride showing a seasonal closure?

Open the UniversalOrlando.com site, then click on the ride icon under the park that it is listed under. There is an area under each ride
titled "About This".Look under that area & it will state.....

Please Note: This attraction is currently closed for seasonal maintenance.

I don't believe there is an actual list of closures or rehabs on their site, that would definitely be MUCH more convenient !!! You just have to check under each ride unfortunately.

The closings used to be listed on the park hours page but since nothing is posted right now, I don't know if it's still being posted there.

I know, that would be so much more easier, but when I could not locate any on the calendar, I emailed the Universal contact rep & she stated you have to click on the ride link to locate the closures......
