After some uncertainty regarding the future of the project, Universal Orlando Resort has officially confirmed that Epic Universe will resume construction. The project announced in 2019 but was halted indefinitely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Comcast CEO Brian Roberts made the official announcement that construction of the brand-new theme park would be continued.
“The restart of construction of Epic Universe is a terrific moment for our employees and for our theme park business in Florida,” Roberts said. “It is our single largest investment in the state and represents our enthusiasm for the spectacular park and the economic opportunities it will generate.”
Tom Williams, CEO of Universal Parks and Resorts, also pitched in on the matter. He said that Epic Universe will be “the most immersive and innovative theme park [Universal has] ever created.”
Land clearing for Epic Universe began in 2018. The park’s official announcement in 2019 was paired with a piece of concept art. This concept art is the only visual available at the moment (aside from a logo). So far, Super Nintendo World is the only known land in the park. The area will be a slightly expanded version of the recently opened Super Nintendo World in Universal Studios Japan. The Orlando version is rumored to have a Donkey Kong roller coaster.
