Epic Universe will be Universal’s “most technologically advanced park,” Universal Destinations & Experiences CEO Mark Woodbury said on Thursday (via The Hollywood Reporter).
Woodbury spoke about the new Universal Orlando Resort theme park at the Bank of America Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference. Epic Universe will use “facial recognition, photo validation technology” that will allow guests to have a “frictionless experience” there and at other parks. Universal Orlando Resort has previously tested this kind of technology.
Various new technology means the company has “a good handle on” demand, which they have dealt with at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Super Nintendo World, which are both at multiple parks now.
“We have the benefit of new technology that we’re deploying in terms of managing ticketing, revenue and revenue management across each of those platforms,” Woodbury said.
Epic Universe is scheduled to open in 2025.
