Hey Thrill Seekers,
The worst kept secret in the theme park industry is finally out!
Ever since Universal snapped up roughly 600 acres of land near Sand Lake Road the internet has been rife about what exactly they’d be doing with all this land.
Today Universal have confirmed that they are opening a 4th Gate.. ‘Universal’s Epic Universe’ and is Universal Orlando Resorts biggest investment to date. Word on the street is that Universal are claiming this to be more than ‘just another park’ and will promise a whole new resort with the layout concept being ‘all different’
Epic Universe will include hotels and shops and will be located on a large plot of land near the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
Here is a sneaky image of the concept art..
‘Universal’s Epic Universe will be the biggest and best ever’ – Tom Williams, CEO of Universal Parks and Resorts.
Here’s what Universal had to say..
Epic. It’s a word that gets tossed around a lot in today’s day and age, though not one we use loosely. When we label something as epic, we want that experience to live up to the promise that the word makes. Which is why today we are elated to announce the addition of our fourth theme park, Universal’s Epic Universe, an experience genuinely worthy of its bold moniker.
Universal’s Epic Universe will offer an entirely new level of experiences that will forever redefine theme park entertainment. Guests will venture beyond their wildest imagination, traveling into beloved stories and through vibrant lands on adventures where the journey is as astounding as the destination. The new location will feature a theme park, an entertainment center, hotels, shops, restaurants and more. Ultimately, this expansion will create more space and freedom to let loose and create lasting memories with the people you love.
