    We’re traveling to Universal at the end of October (23-28), and we would be extremely disappointed if they closed the Jurassic Park River Ride, especially since the dragons rollercoaster is also closed.

    Are there any updates on this rumor, and any reassurances that the ride will be open when we arrive in 2 months?

      No plans for River Adventure to go down this year. You should be good. It may close for a couple weeks in late Winter early 2019 for annual refurbishment, but it’ll stay open through rest of this year. Hollywood’s is closing next week though. If Orlando’s does end up changing, it’s looking like it won’t be for a couple years now.
