Universal Orlando Resort continues to redefine themed entertainment. They continue to raise the bar through innovation, unimaginable storytelling and game-changing technology.
In 2025, the Universal Orlando Resort will unveil Universal Epic Universe. Epic Universe will present a level of theme park immersion that is unmatched. This new theme park experience will transport Guests to expansive worlds. The park will feature more than 50 awe-inspiring attraction, entertainment, dining and shopping experiences that come together to create an unforgettable adventure that is nothing short of epic.
The addition of Universal Orlando’s fourth theme park will also transform the award-winning resort into a weeklong vacation destination filled with even more compelling experiences.
Universal Epic Universe will be an experience like no other when it debuts in 2025. Here’s what we know:
The Lands at Universal Epic Universe
Universal Epic Universe will be divided into five different sections. Attractions and shows can be found throughout the park. Epic Universe invites Guests to explore these vibrant worlds filled with extraordinary and culturally relevant adventures that go beyond their wildest imaginations.
At the heart of Universal Epic Universe and the first world that Guests will encounter is Celestial Park. With acres of rolling gardens, chasing waterways and strolling pathways, Celestial Park will put the “park” back in “theme park.” Universal Orlando revealed even more detail about the wonders to enjoy while exploring this world. Celestial Park will also be the gateway to explore the four additional worlds of Epic Universe through a set of majestic portals.
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.
- Starfall Racers – located in Celestial Park at Universal Epic Universe – 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 at Universal Epic Universe. 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.
- Atlantic – a full-service “surf and turf” restaurant set inside a Victorian aquarium complete with captivating views of Celestial Park.
- 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.
- Nintendo Super Star Store – where guests can shop an assortment of merchandise themed to SUPER NINTENDO WORLD.

In How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk, Guests can soar with dragons in a colorful world filled with Viking adventures. This land is based on the wildly popular “How to Train Your Dragon” film franchise.
