Universal's Newest Theme Park Emerges as Disney World's Challenger

Universal Studios is building a new theme park called Epic Universe, which is set to open in summer 2025.

The theme park will feature themed lands based on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Super Nintendo World, 

Universal Classic Monsters and How to Train Your Dragon Epic Universe will be Universal's third theme park in Orlando, Florida.

 Universal Studios is also building a new theme park in North Texas, which is expected to open in the next couple of years.

The new theme park will be designed for families with young children.

The theme park will include family-friendly attractions, interactive and playful shows, character meet and greets,

unique merchandise, and fun food and beverage venues. The theme park will also have an adjacent 300-room themed hotel and room for expansion.

The theme park will be located east of Dallas North Tollway and north of Panther Creek Parkway in the North Texas community of Frisco.

The Frisco City Council in March approved Universal's special use permit for the theme park, and the company broke ground on the project in November.

The project is expected to create thousands of jobs, including 2,500 new construction jobs.
