Epic Universe is set to be the largest Universal Park in the U.S., featuring tons of rides, attractions, and experiences that will be sure to provide a ton of fun. Not much is known about the Park but early reports and patents indicate incorporating the classic Universal Monster series as well as the expansion known as Super Nintendo World which opened in Universal Studios Japan last year to resounding success.

A Wizarding World of Harry Potter section is also being rumored with a Fantastic Beasts spin to it. The Park’s construction was put on hold last year but it appears progress is quickly being made again with a 2025 opening date announced by Universal.

And speaking of Super Nintendo World, progress is already being made on the colorful new land at the Epic Universe construction site. We recently covered progress on the land, but now we have some exciting pictures of the Mario-centric area. It should be known that Super Nintendo World is the only confirmed land in Epic Universe at the moment, so seeing the theme park start to construct the video game world is a major accomplishment.

As you can see, while the pictures may just look like a pile of dirt, work is well underway for this exciting new land. We couldn’t be more excited for Super Nintendo World to open along with Epic Universe. While no official release date has been confirmed, we do know the general timeframe the Park should be completed.
