The Frisco City Council Has Approved the NEW Universal Theme Park in Texas
Frisco City Council and the Planning & Zoning Commission approved a zoning proposal that would make way for a Universal Theme Park in Texas according to a Local NBC News Station.
The theme park would be located off the Dallas North Tollway and Panther Creek Parkway.
The proposed park has been the subject of several public meetings and even some pushback from concerned residents including those who live just down the street from the proposed area.
Last Night the Frisco City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission meeting included a presentation by Jonathan Hubbard, Frisco’s Planning and Zoning manager.
The Universal Theme Park is designed for children ages 3 to 11. They are expecting around 7,000 to 10,000 visitors daily with double the attendance on the weekends.

The theme park would have to comply with city noise and lighting ordinances, according to Hubbard. Operating hours vary but the attraction could open as early as 8 a.m. and close as late as 10 p.m.
Height limitations for the theme park and hotel also vary, and could require additional council approval, but could top 100 feet or 10 stories.
The current plan is for the construction of the Universal Theme Park to begin later this year in what is currently a vacant field on the east side of the Dallas North Tollway, immediately north of Panther Creek Property.
The proposed size of the project is 97 acres and will likely include a 300-room hotel. That would put the park at just less than half the size of Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington which is about 30 miles away.
The park is expected to open in 2026.
