  1. Calling all UAE theme parks haters! It seems that delays and cancellations are also happening at the theme park capital of the world (Orlando)! Who’s having the last laugh now?

    - Dubai Parks & Resorts is expanding
    - SeaWorld Abu Dhabi is under Construction

    There are still permits being filed for works on the site but noone knows if they are just being filed because they provide long term permission or if work will still go ahead. Most people inside the business seem to think that infrastructure work will go ahead still and decisions then made on whether to proceed with the build.



    There have been 19 permits filed with the county for the Epic Universe site in the last two weeks, including many for buildings in the central hub, park entry area, and Universal Monsters land. Additional permits for backstage areas and the in-park hotel have been posted as well.

  3. Epic Universe is now rumored to be substantially delayed, and Super Nintendo World is now rumored to move back into the Kidzone section of Universal Studios Florida. Welcome to 2020 folks.

    Just some more detail on the images posted previously by Michael.

    Infrastructure work, land grading, and more has continued in the months since. The ground has been dug up and utility pipes have been placed and buried. The parking lots have been poured for the backstage areas, which is also where temporary trailers are expected to be placed during construction. They’ve even added an on-site concrete plant in preparation of pouring foundations when they’re ready.
    Another project that will most likely continue, despite any slowdowns for the theme park construction itself, is the Kirkman Road extension. This road is planned to be expanded so it can connect from the existing Universal Orlando Resort to the new southern resort nearly two miles south. This would not only help bring guests back and forth between the two resorts, utilizing planned dedicated bus lanes, but would also help alleviate traffic congestion in the area in general. Universal and the county are splitting the cost of the expansion, with Universal spending at least 164 million dollars themselves.

  9. Just to confirm the date is now 2024 for opening.

    However, Orange County mayor Jerry Demings recently stated that he had been in contact with "senior officials" at Universal, and that now Epic Universe would be delayed by a year, meaning the park will now open sometime in 2024.
