Construction continues on Universal’s Epic Universe Theme Park

Construction is continuing full steam ahead at Universal’s new Epic Universe theme park, as evidenced by the latest drone videos posted to Instagram by peaceful_thrill_seeker.

The drone videos show progress on various sections of the new park, including the Ministry of Magic and Super Nintendo World.

About Epic Universe


Epic Universe, slated to open in the Summer of 2025, is noted by Universal to be the “most immersive and innovative park” that the theme park giant has ever created. The park was originally slated to open in 2023, however, construction delays due to the COVID pandemic have pushed the opening date back by 2 years.

Attractions and lands that we know will be located at Epic Universe include Super Nintendo World (Universal theme parks in California and Japan currently have this land) and an extension of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

The Orlando Business Journal previously reported a series of trademarks filed by “a Universal Parks & Resorts-related entity and film giant DreamWorks Animation” that may provide insight into the planned Epic Universe attractions. For Universal IP, potential attractions/lands include experiences based on classic monsters, the above-mentioned Starfall Racers rollercoaster, and Constellation Carousel. The DreamWorks-related patents point toward How To Train Your Dragon and The Secret Life of Pets.

The theme park is located near the Orange County Convention Center. Six traffic lanes are being constructed to connect the current Universal property to the Epic Universe location. There are also talks to construct a Sunrail station near the convention center, which would effectively link Epic Universe with the rest of the Sunrail line (including Orlando International Airport).
