Universal's Epic Universe is an upcoming theme park being constructed as part of the Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando, Florida. Its construction was announced in August 2019[1] but was delayed in April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[2][3][4] Most of the construction paused in July 2020 for nearly a year before being restarted in March 2021.[5]

Location

The theme park will be located a few miles south from the existing resort, within a larger 750-acre (300 ha) site south of Sand Lake Road and east of Universal Boulevard.[1]

History

NBCUniversal announced on August 1, 2019, that it was building a third theme park as part of the Universal Orlando Resort.[6] Without releasing details, Tom Williams, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Parks & Resorts, said Epic Universe would be the company's "most immersive and innovative theme park." Comcast and NBCUniversal officials said it would create an additional 14,000 jobs, including professional, technical, culinary and other specialized positions.[1] A possible opening date for the park was not immediately announced.[7]

The project was delayed indefinitely in July 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but on March 3, 2021, Comcast announced the immediate restart of construction.[5] On January 27, 2022, Jeff Shell, CEO of NBCUniversal, stated during an earnings call that the park would be opening Summer 2025.[8] This was hinted at by the resort's official Twitter shortly thereafter.[9]

Attractions

Concept art released by Universal during the official announcement in August 2019 left details purposefully vague.[1] Super Nintendo World was confirmed by a Comcast executive in January 2020.[10]
