Universal has announced that it will close “Jaws,” one of the original attractions in Universal Studios Florida, on January 2, 2012.

Not only that, but the entire Amity section will disappear as well leaving a sizable hole in the park.

WESH News quoted a Universal source as saying:

We must always work to provide new, innovative entertainment experiences for our guests . . . We know “Jaws” holds a special place in the hearts of our guests, and we have put a great deal of thought and care into this decision.

No word on what will replace the beloved ride. Universal promises more info “in due time.” Stay tuned.
