Operating theme parks in areas like Central Florida, which provides weather that allows the parks to be open year round, results in the need to take rides off line for routine maintenance and refurbishments while the parks are still open to guests.

Refurbishments typically include needed maintenance upgrades, refreshing paint and scenery, and fixing malfunctioning ride elements (like animatronics) that cannot be fixed during the typical overnight maintenance periods.

This annual Winter maintenance for Jurassic Park River Adventure will start on January 8, 2024 and run through February 1 2024. Guests will be unable to ride the attraction during this time. Note the time frames are estimates, and may extend beyond the anticipated re-opening date.
