The Epic Universe is Universal’s newest and largest theme park. The theme park is set to open in 2025 and we are starting to see major construction take place at the site.

Twitter account @bioreconstruct shared an aerial photo where we can see major progress being made at Epic Universe, including the laying of track for roller coasters.

The photo you see with a yellow track on both sides is for a rumored “dueling” coaster that will be in the Central Hub of Epic Universe. The attraction will have two identical coasters that “duel” with one another with mirrored tracks. The attraction is rumored to have a space theme to match Epic Universe’s theme.

In addition to the dueling coasters, the Epic Universe will have a Super Nintendo World, as well as many other rumored lands, including an addition to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Classic Monster Land, and How to Train Your Dragon land.

The theme park will also have a hotel at its back, with several other hotel properties being built around it.

What do you think of the progress being made at Epic Universe? Let us know in the comments!
