Lucy — A Tribute, one of the original attractions at Universal Studios theme park, has been closed. It will be replaced by a new Hello Kitty interactive retail experience that will open this year, Universal confirmed Monday.
The Lucy attraction, centered on actress Lucille Ball, showcased props, costumes, scripts and other memorabilia from the 1950s classic TV comedy “I Love Lucy.”
Also there were some of Ball’s awards, a trivia game and Lucy-themed souvenirs for purchase.
Guests will still be able to meet and take photos with the Lucy character on the park’s Hollywood Boulevard daily, Universal says.
The walk-through attraction, located at a prime intersection near the front of the park, opened with the park 25 years ago. Other remaining original attractions include E.T. Adventure and the Horror Make-Up Show.
