Fear Factor Closes (Until Spring)

Universal Orlando is closing its Fear Factor attraction until Spring and cutting hours at other, unspecified attractions in response to “the poor economic forecast for 2009.”

According to WESH TV News:

It will be a limited number of attractions within Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios. He said visitors shouldn’t experience problems, because the attraction hours will be aligned with demand.

Staffing will also be impacted by reductions, the Universal representative said.

All team members will remain active, so there will be no layoffs. However, team members’ hours will be affected.

Team members will also retain their health benefits.

Some good news at least. And the guidebook is still on sale.
