In the year 2025, Universal Orlando Resort is poised to revolutionize the landscape of theme park entertainment with the grand introduction of its most ambitious endeavor to date: Universal Epic Universe. This new theme park is set to redefine the standards of immersion and innovation, promising an unparalleled experience that transports visitors into expansive worlds boasting over 50 awe-inspiring attractions, entertainment shows, dining options, and shopping experiences. The amalgamation of these elements aims to craft an unforgettable adventure that truly lives up to the name "Epic Universe." With the unveiling of Universal Epic Universe, the resort solidifies its position as a premier weeklong vacation destination, offering an array of compelling experiences that go beyond the ordinary.

Breaking ground on the details, Universal Orlando today sheds light on Celestial Park - the beating heart of Universal Epic Universe and the inaugural realm that greets guests as they embark on their journey within the new theme park. Celestial Park promises to be a focal point, captivating visitors with its unique charm and serving as a gateway to the multitude of captivating worlds that lie beyond. This unveiling of specifics adds to the anticipation, hinting at the meticulous planning and creativity that has gone into shaping each facet of Universal Epic Universe, ensuring an immersive and enchanting experience for all who venture into this extraordinary realm.

As Universal Orlando prepares to bring Universal Epic Universe to life, the resort not only anticipates the accolades for its innovative approach but also aims to transform the entire vacation experience. The addition of a fourth theme park cements Universal Orlando Resort as a comprehensive and dynamic destination, offering a diverse range of experiences that promise to captivate visitors throughout an extended stay, making every moment a part of an extraordinary and unforgettable adventure.



With acres of rolling gardens, chasing waterways, and strolling pathways, Celestial Park puts the "park" back in "theme park." As soon as guests enter the imaginative world, they'll embark on a journey of discovery, thrills, and excitement as they wander through lush living gardens nestled along shimmering waters surrounded by stunning architecture inspired by astronomical and mythological elements. Here, guests can relax while taking in the sights and sounds around them, board a shooting comet for an exhilarating roller coaster adventure, dine on delectable cuisine, shop exclusive merchandise to commemorate their visit, and more.


Plus, Celestial Park will be the gateway to explore the four additional worlds of Epic Universe - each bringing to life extraordinary adventures that go beyond guests' wildest imaginations. Through a set of majestic portals that capture the imagination and creativity of each world, guests will embark on a transformative experience as they journey from Celestial Park to:


  • The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Ministry of Magic, where guests will discover a different era of the wizarding world in an all-new land that blends 1920s wizarding Paris from Warner Bros. Pictures' Fantastic Beasts films with the iconic British Ministry of Magic from the Harry Potter series;
  • SUPER NINTENDO WORLD, where guests will enter the iconic green pipe and discover a new way to play as they step into the worlds of beloved 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 wildly popular How to Train Your Dragon film franchise;
  • and 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. 



Here are additional details about some of the other wonders guests can enjoy while exploring Celestial Park:


  • Starfall Racers, is a dual-launch racing coaster that sends guests rocketing through the skies aboard comets in a race to see who's the fastest of them all. Reaching speeds up to 62 mph and heights up to 133 feet along 5,000 feet of track, Starfall Racers will be Epic Universe's most thrilling coaster experience with unique maneuvers such as the "Celestial Spin," in which the two coaster vehicles perform an inverted crisscross while speeding through the air - creating an "out-of-this-world" adrenaline rush.
  • Constellation Carousel - the grand centerpiece of Celestial Park. Here, explorers of all ages will take a fantastical whirl aboard constellations that glide forward, backward - and even make 360-degree rotations - through the Milky Way in a choreographed dance of music and starlight.
  • Astronomica, an interactive wet-play area that also doubles as a giant compass rose to the many wonders of Epic Universe, featuring crystal blue fountains that spring to life and dance around guests;
  • An array of unique dining experiences ranging from full-service restaurants to quick-service locations that offer something for every palate, including Atlantic - a full-service "surf and turf" restaurant set inside a Victorian aquarium complete with captivating views of Celestial Park…
  • …and The Blue Dragon Pan-Asian Restaurant - where diners take a culinary journey across Asia as they enjoy authentic Chinese, Japanese and Thai fare in this full-service restaurant accented with neon dragons and ethereal lanterns. Additional "must-eat" locations within Celestial Park include The Oak & Star Tavern, where guests can enjoy savory barbecue, Pizza Moon, which will serve up a tasty menu featuring a variety of pizzas, and more.
  • Incredibly detailed retail locations, including the Nintendo Super Star Store, where guests can shop an assortment of merchandise themed to SUPER NINTENDO WORLD; Moonship Chocolates & Celestial Sweets, where guests can satisfy their cravings with a unique selection of sweet treats, and more.
  • Plenty of exciting entertainment, including various fountain shows throughout Celestial Park's seven acres of water where a multitude of fountains sway, dance - and even reach heights up to 135 feet in the air - to music and interactive lighting from day to night.

Situated within Epic Universe, at the conclusion of Celestial Park, stands the Universal Helios Grand Hotel-an architectural marvel designed to transport guests to a realm where the celestial and terrestrial realms harmoniously converge. Boasting 500 rooms, unparalleled views, and its exclusive entrance into the theme park, this hotel promises an experience that seamlessly blends the heavenly and earthly elements.

Moreover, Epic Universe not only sets a new benchmark for theme park innovation but also represents Universal Destinations & Experiences' commitment to advancing energy efficiency and embracing sustainable construction practices. The project reflects a dedication to environmental responsibility, enhancing the park's appeal not only through groundbreaking entertainment but also through responsible development practices.

In the coming months, further insights into Universal Epic Universe will unfold, with the introduction of an interactive preview center at Universal CityWalk later this year. This sneak peek opportunity will offer a glimpse into the intricacies of the new theme park. For additional information about Universal Orlando Resort, please visit www.UniversalOrlando.com.
