Universal’s brand new theme park introduces 5 new worlds for guests to explore. Visitors will be happy to see familiar characters but they’ll also be treated to a variety of unique sights and sounds, making the entire trip truly captivating.

1. Celestial Park: Where it All Begins

As the entry point to Epic Universe, Celestial Park sets the stage for the entire visit and shows you just how many things to do at Universal Studios there are. Starfall Racers is a dual-launch racing rollercoaster that will have you riding with the cosmos at high speed. Constellation Carousel is a swirl of cosmic energy that invites guests to explore the constellations themselves. Every carriage turns 360 degrees as it lifts riders 6 feet in the air to immerse them in celestial music, colors, and a trip across the Milky Way. Then there’s  Astronomica, the water play arena that lights up at night.

Sound thrilling? This is only the beginning.

2. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic

Harry has done it again! The all new Wizarding World addition to Universal’s Epic Universe Theme Park transports guests back to 1920s Paris and the British Ministry of Magic.
