Last May we did a post about Universal's new park, Epic Universe, not being cancelled or paused. While construction on the project has continued, it has been at a snail's pace and not at the same speed we imagined. Last summer a majority of the project team was let go on a Friday in the summer and the park was given to senior leadership to shepherd through this tough time.
This morning Comcast CEO Brian Roberts has confirmed the project is full steam ahead now.
The project will take several months to re-ramp back up as contractors and project team are re-assembled per a statement from Universal.
