However, it wasn’t until very recently that Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure entered the same level on the playing field. In recent years, Universal has added new properties and new attractions, such as the entirety of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or the new Jurassic Park attraction: Jurassic World VelociCoaster.

In short, Universal Orlando Resort is full of thrills, chills, and screams for all, with a level of immersion that rivals Walt Disney Imagineering.

However, one iconic area is reportedly closed until further notice.

According to a report by Inside the Magic, an area in Universal Studios Florida is “indefinitely” out of commission.

Earlier in the year, Universal Orlando Resort stopped performing its version of a nighttime spectacular, the Cinematic Celebration. This attraction took place over the Universal Studios Florida Lagoon.

However, now the nighttime spectacular is defunct forever, never to return. Twitter user @bioreconstruct (one of the best theme park photographers in Central Florida) recently snapped some pictures of the area.

In this Tweet, we can see some construction as the Lagoon is dredged for maintenance.

At this time, we don’t know what kind of nighttime spectacular will take over the Lagoon, but Inside the Magic claims that a new drone show may be coming to Universal Studios Florida in the next year or so.
