Wonder if it turns out to be yet another technically complex ride with a demand overload upon opening.

So here it is, Universal's Epic Universe:

FIRST LOOK AT UNIVERSAL???S EPIC UNIVERSE ??? UNIVERSAL ORLANDO RESORT???S FOURTH THEME PARK

Our Universe is expanding.

Epic. It???s a word that gets tossed around a lot in today???s day and age, though not one we use loosely. When we label something as epic, we want that experience to live up to the promise that the word makes. Which is why today we are elated to announce the addition of our fourth theme park, Universal???s Epic Universe, an experience genuinely worthy of its bold moniker.

Universal???s Epic Universe will offer an entirely new level of experiences that will forever redefine theme park entertainment. Guests will venture beyond their wildest imagination, traveling into beloved stories and through vibrant lands on adventures where the journey is as astounding as the destination. The new location will feature a theme park, an entertainment center, hotels, shops, restaurants and more. Ultimately, this expansion will create more space and freedom to let loose and create lasting memories with the people you love.

Here???s a peek at the logo, concept art and proximity map of Universal???s Epic Universe.

Oh wow, that seems quite far away from the other parks. Hopefully it's all worth it. I do spy something that seems like a double launched racer?

That looks huge! I assume it's gonna be a family coaster considering the source material, but wow does that look big. I'm so excited for this project.
