I have heard it will reopen February 28th from someone who claimed they called Guest Services.

The post about Twister being seasonal was written in 2009. Universal and Islands of Adventure are booming now. They've even been increasing park hours these last few months.

Is Ripsaw Falls Open?

The Orlando Examiner reported last week that the ride would open on Monday 2/28. Universal's website says the ride is still under mainenance.

Does anyone know what is actually going on? We will be there next week. TIA

Ripsaw opened back up today. They had hoped to have it open on Tuesday but it wasn't ready yet. But it is finally back open today, March 3rd.

Back home today from our 5 day stay at the RPR and Universal. We hit the IOA on Friday and saw that Ripsaw was open for business. DH and DS13 went on Ripsaw and Bilge-Rat Barges and got totally soaked!

And, according to their Facebook, it'll be open for limited periods during spring and summer, before closing permanently on August 18th.

Is there a place to look on the Universal website that lists closures due to refurb? I couldn't find anything.

Sometimes they'll list closures on their website (on the calendar section), but your best bet usually is to call Guest Services.

Jimmy Neutron

When we were there April 4-6, the Jimmy Neutron ride/attraction was closed.
I don't know why, or how much longer, but it was for 3 days.
