Universal Likely to Add Wizarding Attractions to Epic Universe
In addition to chocolate and chewy goodies coming for Potterheads, Universal in Orlando has begun construction on another theme park, Epic Universe. Not a lot of information has been let out about this new addition, but some things have been confirmed.
The new park will include a Super Nintendo World. This will not be the first of its kind, as there is already one in Osaka, Japan. Several similar Mario themed rides like those in Japan are expected to be built in the Epic Universe. One such ride will be a Mario Kart ride, and another based on Mario’s adventures with his pet dinosaur Yoshi. One more totally new and unique Nintendo (NTDOF) ride is expected, but no details have been revealed on this ride yet.
While not 100% confirmed, it is highly suspected that the Epic Universe will include more wizard, witch and muggle magic in some form. It was speculated that there would be two Harry Potter themed rides, but now rumor has it, according to the Theme Park Tourist that it may only be one ride. The Epic Universe is not expected to be open until 2025, and when it does open, it will be the largest Universal Studios theme park.
