Hmmm...

Real possibility - or just "the first to go"?


Any thoughts about this?

Suits are involved. it will likely get scrapped before it hits the ground.

I would love it if it actually happens. That said, the pessimist in me thinks the Classic Monsters section will end up being replaced with something else. Fingers crossed it actually pans out. At the very least, it would be nice to see some sort of Monsters ride or attraction at Universal. The dark ride through Dracula's Castle, mentioned in that video, would be great. If they ever replace Revenge of the Mummy, perhaps that would be a good idea.

Universal announced that their new Orlando park will be called "Epic Universe", and released some concept art. While they didn't say what properties would be involved, some are speculating that art shows a Universal Monsters part of the park. While I'm still only cautiously optimistic that the new park will have a section for the monsters, I have to admit that a section of the concept art does show something resembling a European village. You can see something that looks like a castle and maybe even a windmill. Here's an article on it: https://attractionsmagazine.com/universals-epic-universe-concept-art/

Full park:

That would be cool! I'd like to see Frankenstein's lab, rather than the windmill.

Some information on a possible ride for the Universal Monsters portion of the new 'Epic Universe' park: https://orlandoparkstop.com/news/theme-park-news/universal-monsters-ride-vehicle-possibly-revealed-in-patent-for-epic-universe/


I really, REALLY hope this park gets made. After stopping due to Covid, it looks like construction is back on and Epic Universe could open 2025.

I haven't been able to find much about these elsewhere, but I also found these two pieces of purported concept art on Twitter:

Potential details on the Universal Monsters Land for the Epic Universe park:

https://screamscape.com/html/epic_universe.htm#Monsters

Excited that it looks like this is definitely going to happen, but some of the details on the theming feel a bit over done to me (the whole modern day village tourist trap thing). I'd rather they just theme it around a classic European village, and know visitors are capable of suspending their disbelief when it comes to the necessary modern technology you'd obviously have in the park. So if this is the general theme behind the park, hopefully it's kept to a relative minimum and doesn't make itself too obvious.

Looks pretty interesting, especially the indoor ride featuring different monsters.
