Closed attractions for August 5-11th 2010

Greetings all:

Can someone point me in the right direction for finding out what will be closed during our stay for both Universal studios or Islands of adventure?

Thanks

Renee

Closures are usually listed about mid way down the page via this link: http://www.universalorlando.com/Reso...rk_hours.aspx#

There is nothing showing closed during August...at least for right now.

Not seeing any closures listed for Sept or Oct. Is this normal?
What about Twister and Fear Factor? Are those usually operating in the off season? Our dates are Oct 25-26.

Fear Factor wasn't operating when we were there last week. I'm not sure if it is operating at all.

Fear Factor only operates seasonally. It probably won't be open until next summer, if it opens at all.

When we were there a couple days ago Poseidon's Fury was closed off with a crane type thing in front of it. Looked like it was likely closed for a while...

I believe it's open again now. Been hearing reports of people going over there and checking out the vortex, so it might've just been that day?

Anyways, I believe Rip Ride Rockit is going to be down for awhile. The sign over the turnstiles says it's down for preventative maintenance. Based on what I've read online, it looks like it'll be down for awhile, unfortunately.

I doubt anything will be announced this far out so keep checking back to see what...if anything will be closed during your travel dates.
