Celestial Park

The central hub of Epic Universe is where Universal Creative aims to put the park back into theme park.

 Celestial Park is a destination in itself with shops, restaurants and its own standout attractions, including the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the park.

Walkways intermingle with sympathetic lush landscaping between portals that are ready to transport you to fantastical worlds. 

The water features in this area alone amount to a massive 7 acres, that’s just over 25% of the entire 27+ acres that make up Celestial Park. They will come alive with dancing fountains throughout the day, and night with some reaching 135feet into the air.

 

Celestial Park

Celestial Park will be much more than the usual mix of theme park facilities, shopping and dining establishments you may be used to with other parks.

As I have said before, in Celestial Park, Universal Creative wants to put the park back into theme park, but also to make it a destination in itself. You are going to want to explore the beautifully landscaped pathways of Celestial Park and each bend will bring a stunning new vista into view including 3 standalone attractions.

Starfall Racers is Epic Universe’s tallest and fastest attraction, Constellation Carousel is a stunning family friendly carousel with an amazing backdrop. Just next door let the children cool off in Astronomical, their own water play area.

Theming will be extended to Celestial Park’s own table service dining establishments and stand out retail locations.

How To Train Your Dragon – Isle Of Berk

The largest land in Epic Universe by area, stepping through the portal of How To Train Your Dragon  – Isle Of Berk will be like stepping into the movie itself.

This version of Berk is set between the second and third movies with humans and dragons living in harmony. You may even spot dragons flying overhead throughout the day!

The whole land is geared towards exploration, do you go left or right round the lagoon but don’t  forget to look everywhere because this land is packed with small details that will really bring Berk to life as you explore. 

 

Isle Of Berk

How To Train Your Dragon – Isle Of Berk has one of the standout family attractions and Epic Universe’s sole Broadway-style theatre show balanced with a mix of thrills, play areas and some unique restaurants.

A lot of the attention pre-opening may be on Super Nintendo World or the Fantastic Beasts-inspired Wizarding World but with 30 animated and static dragons dotted throughout the land representing 17 species, How To Train Your Dragon – Isle Of Berk will become an instant hit with everybody that steps through the portal.

Dominating the skyine as you enter are two 40-foot-tall fire breathing dragon statues in the middle of the lagoon with Hiccup’s Wing Gliders skirting the water level below.

“The Untrainable Dragon”, an updated version of Universal Beijing’s standout hit show “Untrainable” will bring the story of How To Train Your dragon to life with a unique story but utilising the same blend of mesmerising puppetry, multimedia and effects. It is the show that will out-Disney Disney!
