Universal Epic Universe

Universal Epic Universe

Universal Epic Universe will be the fourth gate at the Universal Orlando Resort when it opens in 2025. Unlike its siblings, Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay, Universal Epic Universe will be located on a new "south campus" for Universal Orlando, near the Orange County Convention Center.

Universal's Helios Grand Hotel will be located inside the park, with two moderate-priced hotels, the Stella Nova and Terra Luna Resorts, to be located alongside the entrance road to the park.

What to Do

Universal Epic Universe will include five themed lands, with four lands devoted to individual IPs surrounding the central Celestial Park. Universal has announced the land names and select Celestial Park and How to Train Your Dragon - Isle of Berk locations. The rest of the following names have been revealed via trademark applications filed by the company.

Park Map

Universal Epic Universe will be located at the end of an extension of Kirkman Blvd, north of Universal Blvd and the Orange County Convention Center North-South Building. (It's part of the old Lockheed Martin property.) An extension of the Brightline rail system will run to a new SunRail station that serves the convention center and Epic Universe, allowing for a direct rail connection to the Orlando International Airport.

If you are renting a car while visiting Orlando, you can save on toll road fees by getting a Visitor Toll Pass at the Orlando airport rather than renting a toll transponder from your rental car company: Toll Discounts Return for Orlando Theme Park Visitors
