Future UOR Projects

Epic Universe & Universal Land Purchase

On December 1st, 2015 during the Skyplex Orange County Commissioners meeting for approval of the project, news leaked on GrowthSpotter.com (behind paywall) that Universal has an option on 450+ acres of land near Sand Lake Drive.  Additional confirmation was provided by the county commissioners. This land, in addition to the Wet'n'Wild property (which is closing December 2016) could open up a massive, unprecedented expansion for Universal Orlando Resort, and the biggest theme park additions in Orlando since the 1990s. Read here for more information and speculation.

Announced August 1, 2019, Unviersal's Epic Universe is a new theme park arriving in early 2025. While not many details were shared the new park will feature attractions based on Nintendo, Universal's Monsters, How to Train Your Dragon, Harry Potter, and new original concepts for the park.

Fear Factor Live Replacement

Fear Factor has been earmarked as a possible Harry Potter expansion plot since Diagon Alley opened. After Universal's purchase of new land southeast of the existing resort for a new park it is possible the new attraction designed for this area has been moved to the new park.

Shrek 4D Replacement

Shrek 4D is slated for a new attraction with rumors spanning from the DreamWorks Theater at USH to the new Secret Life of Pets ride. At this point, we believe the project is in flux and new plans are in development.

Kidzone Replacement

KidZone is the next location on the chopping block with the original plans for Nintendo being placed here. Since then various projects have been proposed including Dreamworks, Illumination Entertainment, and other properties. The two leading rumors are a Pokemon themed land with an E-Ticket attraction and/or the much-rumored Secret Life of Pets attraction paired up with a refreshed Animal Actors show.
