What is Epic Universe?
Universal Orlando Epic Universe is a completely new park and resorts complex coming to Florida. Not only will the new theme park be built, the area will also include new entertainment, hotels, shopping and restaurants.
Concept art for Epic Universe is below and if you look closely, you may be able to find a few clues as to what is to come.
We’re seeing coasters, an outdoor stadium, plenty of pools and fountains and more. Some fans are calling for a Nintendo Universe and while that information is not confirmed, we wouldn’t be mad about it!
According to the Universal Orlando blog Epic Universe will be a place where, “Guests will venture beyond their wildest imagination, traveling into beloved stories and through vibrant lands on adventures where the journey is as astounding as the destination.”
Where will Epic Universe Be Located?
Universal Orlando released the map below to show where the new park will be located. Something this epic needs plenty of space so the park will be some distance from the original property on the other side of I-4.
Universal’s new Endless Summer Resort is also on this side of the highway so it will be interesting to see how the rest of the development shapes up.
What do you think about this announcement? Are you excited for a 4th Universal Park? What themes and attractions are you hoping to see?
We will be sure to add more details as they are released so stay tuned!
We opted for Universal annual passes this year because my boys are older and enjoy more thrill rides. My boys love the idea of a ride dedicated to How to Train Your Dragon in this new park. We’ve heard lots of rumors. Haha! In the meantime, we’re counting the days to our next Orlando adventure this fall.
That sounds like a great plan! We love a good countdown. And yes, the rumors are fun to watch! We can’t wait to learn more about Epic Universe.
