Today is a sad, sad day folks. I suppose it was bound to happen someday, right? Universal Studios Orlando Resort has announced they'll be closing their JAWS attraction, including the classic ride!

The news came on a message the Resort posted on their official Facebook page. Check it:

Hey fans, we want you to be the first to know… JAWS! and the Amity area will officially close on January 2 to make room for an exciting, NEW, experience we’re planning for you.

We know you love JAWS! and we do too. It has been an amazing attraction and after terrorizing the waters of Amity here at Universal Orlando for 20 years, it’s a VERY important part of our history. So, we’ve got a couple things planned to ensure we always remember and honor it. We know it’s hard to say goodbye, but we can’t express how EXCITED we are about the new, innovative & amazing experience we’re going to be bringing you.

So if you were planning on hitting this biotch up at least once in your life, you better do it soon! Personally I was able to hit that last Summer, and while it is a bit tame for the older crowd it was definiately a great moment watching that classic beast jump out of the water towards me. As a movie fan, it's a moment I thouroughly enjoyed. I'm sure I'm not the only one either. And here I was thinking I'd get married on that ride ala MALLRATS...

January 2nd marks the end of an era folks. I wonder what's going to take it's place?
