Comcast's Universal Studios has given a tantalizing preview of what's to come with its ambitious $1 billion Epic Universe theme park. Scheduled to open in 2025 near the bustling Universal Orlando Resort, this expansive complex is set to redefine the theme park experience.

Celestial Park: The Heart of Epic Universe

At the core of Epic Universe is Celestial Park, one of the five themed areas designed to immerse guests in a world of astronomical and mythological adventures. Here's what to expect:

  • Awe-Inspiring Attractions: Celestial Park will feature attractions like Starfall Racers, a roller coaster reaching speeds of 62 mph and heights of 133 feet. The Constellation Carousel offers a unique ride experience with forward, backward, and 360-degree movements, while Astronomica caters to younger guests with a playful water area.
  • Lush Landscapes: True to its name, Celestial Park promises an abundance of greenery with gardens, waterways, and pathways, creating a serene park within the theme park.

Universal Orlando's Bold Rivalry with Disney Parks

  • Boosting Orlando's Appeal: Universal's latest venture is a strategic move to elevate its position against Disney Parks. With Disney doubling its investment in theme parks to $60 billion, Universal's Epic Universe is a direct response to intensify competition.
  • Employment Opportunities: The new park is expected to create 14,000 jobs, contributing significantly to the local economy.
  • Enhancing Guest Experience: The aim is to extend visitor stays, increasing revenue through cross-promotion of its attractions.

Expansion Beyond Rides: New Hotels and More

  • Accommodations Galore: Adjacent to Epic Universe will be three new hotels in collaboration with Loews Hotels: Universal Stella Nova Resort, Universal Terra Luna Resort, and UniversalHelios Grand Hotel.
  • More Themed Areas to Explore: Epic Universe will also feature Super Nintendo World, How to Train Your Dragon land, and Dark Universe, each promising unique experiences and adventures.

 

Universal Orlando's Epic Universe is gearing up to be a groundbreaking addition to the world of theme parks. With its unique themed areas, innovative attractions, and strategic location, it's poised to become a major player in the industry and a must-visit destination for thrill-seekers and families alike. The countdown to 2025 begins!
