It’s a REALLY good day to be a theme park fan.
Why? Well, Universal just announced all sorts of big news pertaining to Epic Universe — an all-new theme park coming to Universal Orlando in 2025. The area is set to include rides, shops, restaurants, hotels, and so much more. We’ve gotten a first glimpse at what we can expect from Epic Universe, and y’all… We’re so excited. Let’s talk about it!
Universal Orlando just shared that Epic Universe will be broken into five immersive lands: the Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Ministry of Magic, Super Nintendo World, How to Train Your Dragon — Isle of Berk, and Dark Universe. However, there will also be an “entrance” land that has portals to the other four lands that features rides and attractions in itself.
JUST ANNOUNCED: Five immersive worlds. One amazing theme park. Universal Epic Universe opens 2025 at Universal Orlando Resort. #EpicUniverse

It’s called Celestial Park, and it’ll be the where folks enter Epic Universe for the first time. It’s like the grand entrance to the new theme park! You’ll enter underneath the cronos — the large clock tower. There will also be portals into the five lands that make up the new park.
In Celestial park, there will be two rides — Starfall Racers (a dual-launch coaster), and Constellation Carousel, which will serve as the “grand centerpiece” of Celestial Park. There’ll also be a wet-play area, Astronomica, which will serve as a compass to the five lands, and even some shops and restaurants!
Atlantic will be a full-service “surf and turf” eatery inside a Victorian aquarium, The Blue Dragon Pan-Asian Restaurant will take you on a journey across Asia as you indulge in authentic Chinese cuisine, and you can enjoy barbecue at The Oak & Star Tavern! Pizza Moon will serve up a variety of pizzas, the Super Nintendo Star Store is themed to all things Super Nintendo World, and finally, Moonship Chocolates and Celestial Sweets will be your one-stop shop for all things SWEET.
We are SO excited about the all-new lands coming to Epic Universe, and can’t wait to experience it all for ourselves when the theme park opens next year. We’ll be sure to keep you all updated when it comes to more theme park news, so make sure to follow along so that you never miss a thing.
