Hurricane Ian has made landfall in Flordia and already causing fun social media reels among the residents and sadly enough destruction. One amusement park had an attraction damaged due to the storm.

Universal Studios, Orlando’s Jurassic Park ride, has had a hole ripped in its side from Hurricane Ian. On Twitter, a user saw the damage and people are checking out the early period of the storm’s landfall.

The ride affected the Jurassic Park River Ride and the photo shows how that corner of the outer wall has given way. When damage like this validates Universal’s decision to close the park earlier in the week.

Universal Studios Orlando is discussing reopening tomorrow. But, with the weather raging on, the return to the park might be a little further into the future. Check out what management told fans about the status:

  • Our destination, including CityWalk, will close on Wednesday, Sept. 28. We will remain closed Thursday and anticipate reopening on Friday, Sept. 30 as conditions permit.
  • Our hotels will remain operational as they focus on taking care of our guests.
  • Our Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios Florida will be canceled Wednesday, Sept. 28 and Thursday, Sept. 29. We anticipate reopening the event on Friday, Sept. 30 conditions permitting.

Our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by Hurricane Ian. Thirsty will monitor the storm.
