Universal Orlando Announces "Immersive" New Theme Park Called Epic Universe

Universal Studios Florida announces Epic Universe, appears to include Super Nintendo Land

And though there is still plenty to be revealed, here's everything we know about the new park so far!

On top of Universal Orlando's 25,000 employees, the resort estimates an additional 14,000 team members will be hired to staff Epic Universe across professional, technical, culinary, and other fields.

The fourth park will be the biggest investment the Comcast NBCUniversal has made in its theme park business, Robert said.

Despite the lack of details, officials with the theme park resort promised the new park would be epic.

Universal is expected to place a Super Nintendo World land in Epic Universe (possibly center left in the artwork) - the land is already in development for Universal Studios Japan and Universal Studios Hollywood.

On Thursday, they said that the theme park will be titled 'Epic Universe.' It will offer "an entirely new level of experiences that will forever redefine theme park entertainment". So for those wondering how guests will travel to and from Epic Universe, it appears Universal Orlando is making a huge investment in transportation here to make the travel seamless. The park will be a few miles away from the resort and located on a 750-acre site.

The park will include a theme park, entertainment center, hotels, shopping and restaurants on the enormous plot of land.

When will this park open?

"We look forward to Universal's continued contribution to our state's economic growth and development". Will this add more fuel to the theme park wars, and how would you like to see the other theme park chains (Disney, SeaWorld, Legoland, Busch) address Universal's massive new project (and potential resort doubling potential)?

"Our vision for Epic Universe is historic", said Tom Williams, CEO of Universal Parks and Resorts. "It will build on everything we have done and become the most immersive and innovative theme park we have ever created".

We'll have to wait and see when more information will come out, but we can't wait to find out more.

In a vague description, Universal said Epic Universe will "take guests on a journey where beloved stories expand into vibrant lands".

Universal Orlando now employees 25,000 people and will hire an additional 14,000 team members as part of Epic Universe, including professional, technical, culinary and other specialized positions.

Still, with the smashing success of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida, one imagines there will be some kind of Wizarding World extension in Epic Universe.

Universal is investing $160 million to extend Kirkman Road into the area where the new park is, which Demings said will improve traffic flow in the area. He also found that construction of the new park alone will contribute a total of $11.5 billion in direct and indirect economic benefit into the Florida economy.
