Leaving soon: Hulk, Frozen and Disaster!

It’s last call for some theme-park attractions this holiday weekend. Monday will be the final time to participate in these experiences — at least temporarily. You didn’t really think this spelled the end for “Frozen,” did you?


Frozen Summer Fun, Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

This hot-weather promotion added several “Frozen”-related items into the park, including a welcome processional featuring royals Anna and Elsa, fireworks set to the film’s music and an Olaf-driven show. Sticking around is “For the First Time in Forever,” the 30-minute sing-along in Hyperion Theater (former home of the American Idol Experience).


Disaster!, Universal Studios.

Last month, Universal Orlando announced it was putting the brakes on this attraction in favor of Fast & Furious: Supercharged, which will open in 2017. Disaster combined movie-making tricks and the story of mogul Frank Kincaid (played by Christopher Walken) with, well, a disaster sequence featuring fire and flood. The earthquake effect is a leftover from when this space was called (wait for it) Earthquake. On the official not-long-for-this-world list: The neighboring “Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue,” which Universal says will close later this year.

Incredible Hulk Coaster, Islands of Adventure.

The big green beast of a thrill ride is getting enhancements, but will be back in action at an unspecified date in the summer of 2016, Universal Orlando says. The park’s announcement said to look for changes to the “storyline, ride vehicles and overall experience.” The coaster will continue to be themed to the Marvel character.
