Universal's Epic Universe - New Theme Park Coming to Universal Orlando Resort
It was announced today that Universal Orlando Resort is building a new, fourth, theme park to be called Universal’s Epic Universe. Universal Orlando's vision is to "create an entirely new level of experience that forever changes theme park entertainment." The new location will feature a theme park, an entertainment center, hotels, shops, restaurants and more. Guests will travel into beloved stories and through vibrant lands on adventures where the journey is as amazing as the ultimate destination.
“Our vision for Epic Universe is historic,” said Tom Williams, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for Universal Parks & Resorts. “It will build on everything we have done and become the most immersive and innovative theme park we have ever created. It is an investment in our business, our industry, our team members and our community.”
The new park will be located within a larger 750-acre site that nearly doubles Universal’s total available acreage in Central Florida. Universal’s Epic Universe will be located south of Sand Lake Road and east of Universal Boulevard making it just a few miles from the existing resort.
“Our new park represents the single-largest investment Comcast NBCUniversal has made in its theme park business and in Florida overall,” said Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Comcast Corporation. “It reflects the tremendous excitement we have for the future of our theme park business and for our entire company’s future in Florida.”
