The show has been closed since March 2020 when Universal Orlando and several other local theme parks were forced to close due to the pandemic.

The venue is currently being used for the Halloween Horror Nights show, “Halloween Nightmare Fuel.”

Earlier this month, Universal Orlando announced that Shrek 4D would be closing at the park on Jan. 10.

No word on what could replace Fear Factor Live.
