    Hi! Can anyone tell me if Fear Factor is ever open?? I have been to Universal 3 times in California for the past 2 years - March / April / October - it is always closed. I am hoping that Orlando is different!

    My boyfriend would love to be able to do this and was so disappointed each time we discovered it was closed.

    Thanks for any info!

    The only time I have seen it closed is Oct. for HHN. Then the rest of the year is only a few shows a day.:thumbsup2

    universal california probably has a different schedule than the orlando Fear Factory.

    don't know why the one on the west coast has been closed for those time periods. i have never been to that one.

    Fear Factor area is used for the Bill and Ted's show for HHN each year.
    it closes down sometime in september to get it ready for hhn in october.
    sometimes the end of sept has dates for hhn also.

    you can check the rehab schedule for closures.
    it would list them for the month we presently are in, not for the rehabs that will happen after this time period.
    ie, you will see january rehabs only while still in the month of january.
    february rehabs would not show up until feb most likely.

    Fear Factor in Hollywood is no more, it's being replaced by Creature From the Black Lagoon: The Musical. No Joke.

    Orlando's is running and probably will for another year or two before the contract expires here. After that, who knows.


    Replacing the “Fear Factor” stage show, the “Creature From the Black Lagoon” Broadway-style spectacular will feature “state-of-the-art stagecraft, acrobatic choreography and hilarious, toe-tapping music.” The storyline describes “an unexpectedly outrageous, strangely romantic, frequently melodic and often hilarious adventure” that will leave audiences “immersed in the ominous environment of the deepest Amazon” and “enveloped by the exotic sounds and scents of the jungle.”

    I guess Hollywood's flavor of Beetlejuice

    well, maybe that will be better than what is there now.

    i never cared for the FF tv show.
    only saw the FF at orlando once and it wasn't my thing.


    i know some love it
    i'm just not one of them.

    the one thing that i like about FF is it keeps long lines away from some of my favorite rides..... :)

    Thanks, everyone!

    I will hope that it will be running in May.

    The one in California always says closed - as they are shooting on location!

    When I was there last Thursday and Friday it was running shows probably 4 times a day. So I would guess unless something changes it would be running when you go.

    We were there a week ago and they had several shows a day. You'll have to check the schedule closer to the day you want to go.
