The Africa tram route between Junction Plaza and Akiba Market will be closed for maintenance August 14-16. Africa animal habitats will be open and are best seen by walking. The North America tram route and the parking lot shuttles between Africa and North America will operate as normal. The Dino Bus will be closed. The FUN PASS will be available for purchase, but Dino Bus will not be included. The Carousel, Dino Island 4-D and Dragonfly Paddle Boat attractions will be open. While Dino Bus is closed, the FUN PASS is still a $3 savings for guests who wish to purchase all three of the open attractions.
