Get ready to start your vacation fund because Universal has made a rather big announcement that A New Universal Orlando Theme Park is Opening Bringing 14,000 New Jobs with it!
The new theme park will be called ‘Epic Universe‘ and will be the fourth theme park in Orlando, Florida that Universal has opened.
This new theme park promises to bring more than just epic adventures, ride and food – it will also create 14,000 new jobs and help boost the economy.
“We look forward to Universal’s continued contribution to our state’s economic growth and development. And we are especially grateful for Universal’s partnership in improving Shingle Creek, which plays a critical role in serving the Everglades.”Gov. Ron DeSantis
According to reports, the new theme park will be on a 750-acre site south of Sand Lake Road and east of Universal Boulevard, not connected to the existing Universal Orlando Resort, but will be a few miles away and within sight of the convention center.
Below is a piece of concept art for the park.
The theme park is already under construction and rumors are, it may include some Nintendo theme attractions or Dreamworks Animation franchises including How to Train Your Dragon, Kung-Fu Panda, Madagascar and Shrek.
There is no official opening date set yet but we will keep our eyes peeled and let you know as soon as we hear more!
