Concept Art For Universal's Epic Universe
Orlando's theme parks are expanding in an epic way. On Aug. 1, the entertainment-themed Universal resort announced an entirely new park inspired by adventurous and perilous journeys: Epic Universe. The park will join the original Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay, a water park. The most exciting revelation is that Epic Universe will sit on 750 acres, thereby doubling the size of the resort.
"Our vision for Epic Universe is historic," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tom Williams in a press release. He added, "It will build on everything we have done and become the most immersive and innovative theme park we have ever created. It is an investment in our business, our industry, our team members and our community."
Though not much else — read: nothing — is known about potential rides and different lands, Epic Universe will also include hotels, shops, restaurants, and an entertainment center. While that still leaves us all with a lot of guessing to do, look ahead to see photos of the logo and concept in the meantime.
