Universal is coming to North Texas, and it looks like it’s time for a road trip!!
Now, it’s no surprise that one of my favorite vacation locations is Texas. I lived there for 12 wonderful years, and now I try to get back at least every other year.
But, never have I had a better reason to pack up my bags and plan a road trip to Texas!
Frisco, Texas is going to be the new location for a Universal Park & Resort, and I can’t wait!
There is so much about this new park that I already love.
It is going to be aimed at younger families — those with younger kids.

They are throwing around words like “immersive” and “humor,” and I’m going to need them to go ahead and open now.
The new park concept, set in a lush green landscape and featuring immersive themed lands, celebrates Universal’s iconic brand of entertainment, humor and innovation and brings to life its beloved characters and stories in ways that will wow even the youngest theme park goers.Universal Press Release
Now, there is currently no timeline as to when this park will be finished — or when they will begin construction, for that matter.
Right now, it is simply a proposed park. But, what they are proposing makes me want to pack my bags and be there!!
The company recently purchased a whopping 97 acres, and they are planning a park and an adjacent hotel.
The proposed park will be designed to be more intimate and engaging for younger audiences and will be sized for a regional audience. It will be full of family-friendly attractions, interactive and playful shows, character meet and greets, unique merchandise and fun food and beverage venues. Although smaller in size, it will still carry the same quality as Universal’s other larger resort destinations.Universal Press Release
Frisco just might be the most perfect location for a new Universal theme park.
Frisco is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and has been recognized as a great place to plant professional roots and raise a family — This new Universal concept will continue to enhance our tax base, expand employment opportunities and bring even more fun to Frisco benefiting our residents, businesses, and visitors.Jeff Cheney, Mayor of Frisco
Of course, more information about this new Universal park will be revealed over time.
But, for now, we can get super excited knowing that Universal is coming to North Texas!
