Universal fans have a lot to look forward to in the next few years.
From a year-round horror-focused destination coming to Las Vegas to Epic Universe, the massive project in the works for Orlando — theme parks and experiences will be popping up around the country soon. In Frisco, Texas, a new family-focused park is on its way, and Universal has shared some big news on what we can expect — including its official name.
In a press release today, Universal shared that the new name for this upcoming park is “Universal Kids Resort,” which it describes as “the company’s first-ever theme park designed specifically for families with young children.” They later shared the park’s logo on Instagram.
Recently, we noticed that Universal filed trademark applications for “UNIVERSAL KIDS RESORT,” for use in theme parks, clothing, books, and more.
Earlier this year, Universal shared concept art for the park that gave us a general sense of what we might be able to see once the park opens. Here’s what it looked like back in January:
Today, Universal shared updated concept art for the park as well as some new details about what it will feature — including “family-friendly attractions, interactive and playful shows, unique merchandise, fun food and beverage venues and character meet and greets.”
We also know that the resort will include a 300-room, themed hotel for those looking to stay on property. Progress on the park is creating over 2,500 new construction jobs in the region.
