Universal Orlando Resort Offers Sneak Peak of Epic Universe



Source: Universal Orlando Resort
Universal Orlando Resort has given us a sneak peek at one of the five new lands that will be opening at its Universal Epic Universe park. The new land is called Celestial Park and features lush gardens, waterways, and paths with astronomical and mythological-inspired architecture. It is the gateway to the other four lands in the park and will offer in-park accommodations, fountain shows, a wet-play area, a carousel, a dual-launch racing coaster, and themed restaurants and shops.
Celestial Park’s main attraction is the Constellation Carousel, a ride that takes visitors on a whirl through the Milky Way. Passengers will glide forward and backward on constellations and make 360-degree rotations in a “dance of music and starlight.” The park also features the Starfall Racers, which launches guests into a rocketing race along 5,000 feet of track aboard competing comets, reaching up to 62 mph and heights of 133 feet.
The interactive wet-play area, Astronomica, is a central and immersive feature of the park. It is a collection of crystal blue fountains that spring to life around guests, and it serves as a giant compass, pointing park attendees to the various lands of Epic Universe. Additional fountain shows, some reaching up to 135 feet in the air and programmed to sway to music and interactive lighting day-round, will be located throughout the land’s seven acres of water.
“It’s the most technologically advanced park we’ve ever done,” Woodbury said at the Bank of America Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference. “And that speaks to both the attractions themselves, the next generation of robotics drone technology, all the way through to the guest experience. The full guest journey is really being taken to a whole new level.”
The park has also confirmed the themes of three additional lands: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic, How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk and Dark Universe.
