Universal Destinations & Experiences (UDX), has announced plans to unveil Universal Epic Universe in 2025. Epic Universe will present a new level of theme park immersion that will transport guests to expansive worlds featuring more than 50 attraction, entertainment, dining and shopping experiences.  

The addition of Universal Orlando’s fourth theme park will also transform the award-winning resort into a weeklong vacation destination filled with even more compelling experiences.  

Epic Universe invites guests to explore five vibrant worlds filled with extraordinary and culturally relevant adventures:  

  • Celestial Park: At the heart of the park and the first world guests will encounter, Celestial Park offers acres of rolling gardens, chasing waterways and strolling pathways. Celestial Park will also be the gateway to explore the four additional worlds of Epic Universe through a set of majestic portals.  

  • The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic, where guests will discover a different era of the wizarding world in a new land that blends 1920s wizarding Paris from Warner Bros. Pictures’ Fantastic Beasts films with the British Ministry of Magic from the Harry Potter series.   

  • SUPER NINTENDO WORLD: Guests will enter the green pipe and discover a new way to play as they step into the worlds of characters like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Donkey Kong.  

  • How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk, where guests can soar with dragons in a colorful world filled with Viking adventures based on the “How to Train Your Dragon” film franchise.  

  • Dark Universe, where guests encounter everything from the experiments of Dr. Victoria Frankenstein to the shadowy landscape where monsters roam in a world of myth and mystery.  

Adding to the experience at Epic Universe will be three new Universal hotels, including sister properties, Universal Stella Nova Resort and Universal Terra Luna Resort, and the majestic Universal Helios Grand Hotel – which is located inside of the theme park.  

This park is also Universal Destinations & Experiences’ latest development to integrate energy efficiency and sustainable construction practices.
