4 Amazing Projects in Development at Universal Orlando Resort

3. Universal's Epic Universe (TBA 2022)

Earlier this year Universal Orlando Resort confirmed that its newest theme park will be Universal’s Epic Universe. Universal describes this new park as one that will introduce an “entirely new level of experience that forever changes theme park entertainment”.

“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 CEO 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.”

Though no IPs or attractions have been confirmed, we can see from the concept art above that this park will have dueling roller coasters, multiple indoor rides, and what looks like an outdoor performance stage. And while we originally thought that Nintendo Land would be heading to Universal Studios Florida, rumors now indicate that this new land will actually be housed in this new theme park. 

No opening time frame has been released, but considering land clearing has finished over the summer, we'd imagine vertial construction will begin before the start of 2020, which means we could check out this new theme park as soon as 2022. 

4. Unnamed hotels and shopping district (TBA 2022)

Universal’s Epic Universe will be located on a 750-acre site south of Sand Lake Road and east of Universal Boulevard, and though the centerpiece of this new site will of course be the theme park, Universal has announced that Universal's Epic Universe will be part of a larger complex, complete with entertainment district, restaurants, hotels and shops (similar to the existing CityWalk area).With this new addition, Universal Orlando Resort will double its current size,even though the location is several miles away from the current Universal Orlando Resort theme park complex.
