New Epic Universe Trademarks Reveal Names of Frankenstein Ride, ‘Astropub,’ and More

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 for Epic Universe include a Universal Classic Monsters land, How to Train Your Dragon land, and a third themed to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

New Universal Epic Universe Trademarks

The following are the latest trademarks filed for Epic Universe.

Monsters Unchained: The Frankenstein Experiment

This trademark came with a vague description as an amusement park, theme park and/or waterpark service, but rumors and careful scouring of overhead shots indicate that this may be an indoor ride and a major attraction in the still-unconfirmed Classic Monsters area of the park.

Meteor Astropub

This area is described as a bar, concession, snack bar, restaurant, and more. The central area/hub of the park is rumored to be celestially-themed, so the name of this bar is a play on “gastropub,” which may hint at the type of fare to be served at this location.

De Lacey’s

Named for the blind Frenchman who treated Frankenstein’s monster with compassion and gentle grace, De Lacey’s is described as another food and beverage location.

Pretorius’ Scientific Oddities

This shop, named after Doctor Septimus Pretorius from the Frankenstein films, is described as a general merchandise shop selling apparel, gifts, and more.

North Star Wintry Wonders

The name of this potential shop indicates its placement in the rumored astrologically-themed hub of the park. The description of the shop, as seen above, is that it will have “retail store services featuring apparel, gifts, and general consumer merchandise.” Orlando Parks Stop has further speculated that this may specifically be a holiday-themed shop.

Lens Flare

The camera-themed name of this shop continues with the description stating that it will have “retail store services featuring photographs, apparel, gifts, and general consumer merchandise.”

Previously Filed Universal Epic Universe Trademarks

These new trademarks join others made earlier this year as the park pushes toward a Summer 2025 opening. Previous trademarks made this year include:

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 above.

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.
