Posiden's Fury Closing at Islands of adventure

Universal Studios announced the closure of Posidens Fury at Islands of Adventure.

It's sad to see this go. It has always felt fairly unique to me(I'm sure there probably are some other parks out there with a walk-through show but not many) and been a very enjoyable attraction. it is something fun for everyone to participate in. I'm honestly surprised it lasted this long, with Hogsmeade next door it has seemed like only a matter of time before the whole lost continent is re-themed.

I've never made it there or heard of it, but the concept sounds really cool. Sad that something accessible and unique like that is what bites the dust for more branded stuff. You'd think parks would notice that stuff like this and Flooded Mine that everyone can participate in fills a needed void in their attractions lineup.

Universal is being highly aggressive in Orlando. Epic Universe looks to be, well, epic.

It is shaping up to be appropriately named.   Really just the Nintendo land by itself would be enough to get me to want to see it, but the rest of it sounds pretty good too.
