Tons of HUGE announcements just dropped about Universal Orlando’s new theme park, Epic Universe. All of the details about the five immersive lands have us seriously excited for the park’s 2025 opening!
Universal confirmed a few new rides that are coming to Epic Universe, and now we’ve discovered a key detail about two of those rides: the height requirements! If you’re thinking about planning a trip, you’ll want to make note of this info so that you know whether your little ones will be able to go on the new rides.
The rides that Universal confirmed are both coming to Celestial Park, which is the central hub of Epic Universe. There’s a roller coaster that’s themed to the cosmos and a beautiful carousel!
To ride this coaster, guests will need to be at least 48″ tall.
Starfall Racers is a dual-launch roller coaster, so two vehicles launch simultaneously and “race” each other! The coaster will reach speeds up to 62 miles per hour, and the track will reach up to 133 feet high. In total, there are 5,000 feet of track.
The ride vehicles look like comets, and they “race along an inverted crisscross, known as the ‘Celestial Spin’ in a dazzling display of blazing colors and ethereal music.”
Universal shared this cool fact about the coaster: “With no external track lighting at night, the fully illuminated ride vehicles appear as comets shooting across the night sky above Celestial Park.”
There is no height requirement for the Constellation Carousel, so the whole family can enjoy this ride.
This “imaginative carousel” is themed to the constellations. The animals in the carousel include celestial lions, dragons, peacocks, and more.
Every animal rotates 360 degrees and lifts riders up to six feet in the air! Universal said, “Celestial music and color dazzle your senses as you whirl and twirl together across the Milky Way.”
We’ll keep watching for more updates from Universal Orlando, so stay tuned to DFB for the latest news.
