‘Universal Epic Universe’ Multiverse Of Theme Parks Includes Harry Potter, Nintendo & More, Opens 2025

Universal Orlando Resort has unveiled its most ambitious project yet, the Universal Epic Universe, which will have four themed zones based on Harry Potter, How To Train Your Dragon, Universal Monsters, and Nintendo, set to open in 2025. It’s worth noting that one largely popular franchise is absent from the park, despite Jurassic World having plenty of potential to feature in the lineup.

The multiverse of theme parks is designed with a world-hopping theme in mind. ‘Portal’ entrances to different zones connect them together at the central hub, while Celestial Park teases a carousel above a lake and exhilarating dual-launch coasters, as well as an interactive wet play area for the little ones.

Unique dining options take centre stage, such as a restaurant over the lake built like an aquarium, an Asian-themed restaurant serving up Chinese, Japanese, and Thai food, as well as a candy store with plenty of sweet treats.

You won’t want to miss the Universal Helios Grand Hotel on the edge of the park, a space-themed hotel with immersive design, and the other two hotels, Stella Nova and Terra Luna, located next to the park.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic zone takes guests on a magical journey blending the 1920s aesthetic of the Fantastic Beasts films with the iconic British Ministry of Magic in a spellbinding park. Further details on rides and food options will be announced soon, but there’ll be a souvenir store for sure.

And for those who love How to Train Your Dragon, which recently announced a live-action movie, the Isle of Berk zone will be themed like the movies, and you’ll get to soar with dragons, perhaps hinting at a potential ride announcement.

Meet your favourite Mario characters at Super Nintendo World, which will likely be an expanded version of the current Super Nintendo Worlds at Universal Studios Japan and Hollywood, and we’re hoping, is reservation-free this time. The souvenir shop will be located in Celestial Park, and is adorned with stained-glass windows on the walls decorated in Mario, Peach, and other character designs, along with exclusive merch.

Universal Monsters will also get a land of its own – the Dark Universe, where guests encounter everything from the experiments of Dr. Victoria Frankenstein to the shadowy landscape where monsters roam in a world of myth and mystery.

The Universal Epic Universe has plenty of room for expansion, with acres of land to work with. A park map has even been drawn out, which looks grand in size. More information is expected in the coming months, but until then, there’s plenty to get excited about!
