Not a lot of details were given. The name should of went through a few more people before deciding on it. A weak announcement to me.

While we didn't get too many details what's inside the park, I'm excited to see another new theme park coming to the resort nonetheless.

They didn't release much obviously so there's not much to comment on but I'm glad to see a new theme park.

I don't know, I think I'm betting on WESTCOT/DCA 2.0

They only gave us one piece of concept art, and although it looks AWESOME, it also looks kinda generic. Also, why would they even think of building a brand new park (even if it includes its own little mini resort) so far from the rest of Universal without a good transit option. Sure, they talked about the bullet train, but thats not there thing and it won't connect with the rest of the resort (I don't think).

Maybe they will give out some more info soon, but I think until then it seemed like a weak response to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and DHS's remake.

I hope it works out for Universal cause I think the concept has potential, plus with a name like Epic Universe you can't go wrong there!
I don't work for a theme park, but I wish I did!

I've added some zoomed in screenshots of some of the elements of the park that can be seen more clearly now that the higher resolution concept art has been released... Some interesting things to look at!

Anyone else find it funny that USO had world-class dueling coasters,then removed the dueling element from them before getting rid of the rides completely and now are putting a new dueling coaster in their new park?

^we all know why they removed dragons lol

I am getting Disney Seas vibes from this park! Really excited about the Monsters and Nintendo land!! I will be spending a lot of time on that side of the park. The area on the lower right looks to be the dreamworks area as it looks more "kidish". Can't wait for more to be revealed

"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

I chuckled at the irony of this too, but I know there were other factors at play with the Dragons removal.
