Work is resuming on Universal Orlando Resort’s Epic Universe – the widely anticipated theme park that will create an entirely new level of theme park entertainment.

Work on Epic Universe was put on hold in July 2020, as the company adjusted plans in the midst of the pandemic. It will restart immediately – but is expected to take several months before reaching full-speed as Universal re-staffs for the project and reassembles its vendor and contractor teams.

Restarting Epic Universe will result in the creation of hundreds of jobs within Universal and thousands of jobs across Central Florida. These jobs include highly skilled professional positions, all levels of construction jobs and beyond.

The Epic Universe project will bring billions of dollars to the Florida economy – and also create more than 14,000 permanent jobs in addition to the thousands of jobs that will be generated during its development.

Epic Universe will feature a new theme park, an entertainment center, hotels, shops, restaurants and more.  It will be located on a 750-acre site that nearly doubles Universal’s total available acreage in Central Florida.  It will be located a few miles from Universal Orlando’s current theme parks in Southwest Orange County – specifically, south of Sand Lake Road and east of Universal Boulevard.
