Universal Destinations & Experiences has filed several trademarks potentially for Epic Universe attractions. Epic Universe will be a new park at Universal Orlando Resort and is expected to open in summer 2025. Though only Super Nintendo World has been confirmed, rumored lands include a Universal Classic Monsters land, How to Train Your Dragon land, and a third The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Orlando Business Journal shared the list of new trademarks Universal filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. They are mostly for the Universal Classic Monsters and How to Train Your Dragon lands.
Universal Classic Monsters:
- Dark Universe: OBJ notes that “Dark Universe” was a canceled series of Universal Monsters movies. This could be the name of almost anything, including the official title of the land.
- Curse of the Werewolf: Perhaps a Universal Monsters attraction.
- The Oak & Star Tavern: Likely a restaurant.
How to Train Your Dragon:
- How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk: This could be the official name of the land.
- The Untrainable Dragon: Universal Studios Beijing has a “How to Train Your Dragon” stage show called “Untrainable” and a stage is under construction in the rumored Epic Universe land.
- Hiccup’s Wing Gliders: This could be the name of the “How to Train Your Dragon” roller-coaster.
- Fyre Drill: This could be a water ride.
- Dragon Racer’s Rally: Maybe the name of another “How to Train Your Dragon” attraction.
- Starfall Racers: This is almost certainly the name of the park’s dual racing coaster.
- Constellation Carousel: A carousel is pictured near the center of the park in concept art.
Just because Universal filed the trademarks, doesn’t mean they have to use these names. As always, things could change in the future.
Assuming that the rumors are true, Super Nintendo World is at the bottom left, Classic Monsters land is at the top left, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is at the top right, and How to Train Your Dragon is at the bottom right. The dual-racing coaster is between The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and How to Train Your Dragon but not part of either land.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be inspired by Place Cachée, the Parisian version of Diagon Alley seen in “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.” Construction photos reveal a version Porte Saint-Denis, an arched gateway built in the late 1300s in Paris. The Wizarding World ride, however, will transport guests to the U.K. Ministry of Magic.
Super Nintendo World will open with the Mario Kart and Yoshi’s Adventure rides from Universal Studios Japan as well as a Donkey Kong roller-coaster. Guests will enter through a green warp pipe into the enclosed land, just like in Japan and Universal Studios Hollywood.
Epic Universe will also have an in-park hotel, as seen at the top of the above concept art.
