Universal Orlando Resort has announced exciting plans for its new theme park, set to open next year. This upcoming park will feature dedicated lands inspired by Super Nintendo World characters, Universal film monsters, the “Fantastic Beasts” films, and the “How to Train Your Dragon” film franchise. However, the centerpiece of this extraordinary park will undoubtedly be Celestial Park, according to theme park officials.
Located in the heart of Universal Orlando’s fourth theme park, known as Universal Epic Universe, Celestial Park is set to be a sprawling multi-acre space filled with enchanting gardens, serene waterways, and picturesque pathways for leisurely strolls. Additionally, it will serve as the gateway to the park’s four other captivating lands, as recently highlighted in a news release by Universal officials.
Mark Woodbury, the chair and CEO of Universal Destinations & Experiences, a division of Comcast NBCUniversal, expressed his enthusiasm for Celestial Park, stating, “It truly reinstates the essence of a theme park.” With this statement, Woodbury emphasizes the park’s commitment to delivering an immersive and awe-inspiring experience to its visitors.
Celestial Park will boast an array of thrilling attractions, including a dual-launch racing coaster that will accelerate to speeds of up to 62 mph and reach heights of up to 133 feet along its remarkable 5,000 feet of track. Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a colossal cosmos-themed carousel that gracefully glides both forward and backward, creating an enchanting atmosphere. The park will also feature captivating dancing fountains, a Nintendo Super Star Store, and a diverse selection of restaurants to satisfy every palate.
At the conclusion of Celestial Park, visitors will discover a magnificent 500-room hotel that seamlessly integrates with the park’s overall design. This integration ensures that guests can fully immerse themselves in the park’s magical atmosphere throughout their stay, providing an unrivaled experience.
While Universal Epic Universe is not set to open its doors until 2025, Universal officials have promised to reveal more details about this extraordinary theme park later this year. As anticipation builds, enthusiasts eagerly await further updates on what promises to be a truly remarkable addition to the Universal Orlando Resort.
