Where Are Upcoming Universal Theme Parks Going To Be Located?
Universal is actively working on three new theme parks - two in the United States and one in Asia!
Universal Orlando will be expanding to three theme parks and one water park with the addition of Universal's Epic Universe theme park.
Universal's Epic Universe is projected to open in the Summer of 2025 and will be the newest theme park to open in Orlando since Volcano Bay in May 2017
Also adding to the list of Universal theme parks over the next few years will be a brand new theme park and Universal property in Texas.
Located in the city of Frisco, this Universal theme park will be a much more scaled-down version of the Universal Studios theme parks we're already familiar with.
This park will also have a much younger target audience than other Universal theme parks, with most attractions being designed for those between 3 - 9 years of age.
The Universal Texas property will also be the first domestic Universal property (or Disney for that matter) located outside of the states of Florida or California.
When it comes to global expansion, Universal Studios will be building a second theme park at Universal Studios Beijing.
Universal Beijing will be the first Universal property in Asia to have two theme parks as part of its overall resort property. Little is known about this second Universal park in Beijing, but Universal is far into the planning stages with construction slated to being in the coming years.
