    Please list dates that rides and shows will be closed. This thread is for listing ride closures or for asking questions about your date. If you would like to discuss your disappointment with a ride being closed during your visit, feel free to start a new thread about that.

    Both Fear Factor Live and Twister are now seasonal attractions. They are closed until Spring 2009.

    We don't know the exact dates they will open yet. My guess is the month of April. But there is still a possibility it might be open when you go.

    We just got back from two weeks in Orlando, we went to Universal two days (one day the first week and another day the second week) we were lucky enough to be able to see twister the first week, then it was closed the second week.

    So Twister will always be closed that time of year, every year?

    I would say it will continue until the economy and attendance pick up.

    I'm kind of surprised. We did Twister twice and there was always a hefty line. Either way, I'm glad it closed after we were there! (We left Uni on 2/14)

    I can't remember if Twister was open Saturday night for Mardi Gras or not. With all the people there, it should have been. RoTM had a 40 minute wait at 6pm.

    In Sept/Oct 2006 and Aug/ Sept 2007 Fear Factor was closed. What's the chance of it being open Sept 4-17, 2009.

    Are both Fear Factor Live and Twister still closed, if so, when will they reopen?

    Not sure about FF but Twister has reopened on a regular basis. It could be open daily until Spring Break is over and then close until summer...but it's open now.

    No word yet on any closings. That is a peak time and rides aren't usually closed during peak times.

    I was there about that time in 2008 and it was closed. It more than likely won't be open so that they can ready it for the Bill and Ted show during HHN, since it will most likely open at the tail end of September.

    It might still be a little too early, but any word yet on the last week of July, first week of Aug? I know that's peak time, but I hope none of the main rides will be down. :headache:
