As we enter the month of June, there’s a lot to celebrate.

Not only is it Pride Month, celebrating the LGBTQ community, but this year, it’s also the month known to Jurassic Park (1993) fans as ‘Jurassic June,’ celebrating the film’s 30th anniversary.

However, we’re disappointed to report such drab news at the start of Jurassic June: one of these larger-than-life attractions will be closing at the end of the summer.

According to the official website, Universal Studios Japan’s Jurassic Park The Ride attraction will be closing on September 4 of this year. Unfortunately, the ride closure lists the Jurassic Park ride as being closed ‘Indefinitely.’

However, an indefinite closure doesn’t mean the attraction is closing for good. On the contrary, this extended closure is actually due to a retheme, turning the old ride into a new Jurassic World ride.

From Universal Studios Japan’s official website:

The major refurbishment of Jurassic Park the Ride, which begins on Monday, September 4, 2023, is expected to take until early 2025. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
