Universal Orlando Resort is about to get bigger as work resumes on its fourth theme park called Epic Universe.
Back in July 2020, the company adjusted plans due to the pandemic and had to stop working on the new theme park.
According to the news release, the restart will begin immediately. However, it will take several months before reaching full-speed as Universal re-staffs for the project.
The project will create more than 14,000 permanent jobs and infuse billions of dollars into Florida's economy.
“The restart of construction of Epic Universe is a terrific moment for our employees and for our theme park business in Florida,” said Brian L. Roberts, Chairman, and CEO of Comcast Corporation. “It is our single-largest investment in the state and represents our enthusiasm for the spectacular park and the economic opportunities it will generate.”
Epic Universe will feature a new theme park, an entertainment center, hotels, shops, restaurants, and more.
