Who else is STOKED about the addition of Epic Universe to Universal Orlando?
The new theme park is currently set to open in 2025, and is set to bring new rides, attractions, restaurants, hotels, shops, and MORE. We just got news on one of the lands that you’ll be able to visit in Epic Universe, and it’s bringing new RIDES. Let’s talk about it!
Universal Orlando just shared that Epic Universe will feature FIVE super immersive lands that you’ll be able to wander through during your visit. You’ll first enter Celestial Park, which is the heart of Epic Universe. Here, there will be “portals” to other immersive worlds: the Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Ministry of Magic, Super Nintendo World, How to Train Your Dragon — Isle of Berk, and Dark Universe.
JUST ANNOUNCED: Five immersive worlds. One amazing theme park. Universal Epic Universe opens 2025 at Universal Orlando Resort. #EpicUniverse

In Celestial Park, you’ll be able to ride TWO new rides! The first one is Starfall Racers, a dual-launch racing coaster that’ll take you soaring through the skies to see who’s the fastest of them all. You’ll reach speeds up to 62 miles per hour and heights up to 133 feet. Oh, and the track is 5,000 feet long!
Next up, you’ll be able to ride Constellation Carousel, which is the “grand centerpiece” of Celestial Park. This is a family-friendly ride that will allow you to spin around aboard constellations. You’ll go forward, backward, and even make 360-degree spins!
There will also be a play area called Astronomica, which is a wet-play area that will double as a compass to the other immersive things you can do in Epic Universe!
Universal did give us a glimpse of one more ride, though. The intention was to create another chapter of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which can be found in the new Ministry of Magic land! Here, you’ll explore lore from Fantastic Beasts as well as the British Ministry of Magic. As for the ride here, Universal says it’ll have to be a surprise. We have a feeling it’s gonna be good.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated with more news, so make sure to follow along for more.
