Much like Walt Disney World, Universal is hard at work on bringing new and exciting experiences to Guests in the Orlando area. This is most apparent with the new Park the company is building. Epic Universe is set to open Summer of 2025, something that was confirmed by Universal CEO Jeff Shell.

Shell delved into this expansion project recently, calling the timeframe “perfect timing,” while mentioning current consumer demands, such as Orlando International Airport’s opening of Terminal C back in September as well as hotel booking trends.

According to Shell, Epic Universe is being designed so Park Guests coming from the Orange County Convention Center can “come into one land and not the whole park.” Epic Universe is located northeast of the Orange County Convention Center, and other areas of land that Universal owns that are correlated to the theme park are located right across Universal Boulevard.

The new Park is rumored to contain several franchises and will include its own version of Super Nintendo World. We cannot wait for Epic Universe to open officially. Universal Studios Hollywood’s version of this land just opened, and Guests have been pouring in to give it a spin.

Epic Universe isn’t the only theme park currently being constructed by Universal, as the company revealed a few weeks ago that a brand-new, kid-focused Resirt will be making its way to Texas in the near future.

The almost 100-acre planned entertainment hub will be located on the Dallas North Tollway in the $10 billion Fields development.

Are you looking forward to Epic Universe?
