What's under construction at Disney, Universal and other top theme parks

Universal Orlando's new theme park leads the line-up of new attractions coming to the world's top theme parks over the next few years.

Universal's Epic Universe will open on a new site located just north of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. There's no opening date yet, but initial concept art depicts four immersive theme lands, tipped by many to include Orlando's installation of Super Nintendo World as well as lands based upon The Wizarding World's Fantastic Beasts franchise and Dreamworks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon.

As for Super Nintendo World, the first installation of that land will open in 2020 at Universal Studios Japan, then come Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Singapore at as-yet-unannounced dates. Featuring real-life versions of Bowser's Castle and Princess Peach's Castle, the video game-themed land will include "Mario Kart Experience" — "the most immersive and cutting-edge technological attraction that we could possibly imagine," Universal Creative officials have said.

At the Disneyland Resort, Disney California Adventure is getting a Marvel-themed Superhero Universe land in 2020, which will include a new ride themed to Spider-Man.

Meanwhile, Walt Disney World is working on multiple new experiences:

The TRON coaster will be complete in time for the park's 50th anniversary in 2021, and the Epcot rides will be open by that park's 40th, in 2022.

Here is the complete list of all attractions currently under construction at the world's major theme parks.
