The imaginary park concept shows a park “in a lush green landscape” with “immersive themed areas”. The park’s goal is to appeal to a “younger audience” and an overall family-friendly, regional audience. In addition, the park will have “a completely different look, feel and scale than Universal’s existing parks.”

While the park aims to be distinctive, there are hopes to bring everyone’s favorite Universal components to the new park as well: “entertainment, humor and innovation and [that] brings his beloved characters and stories to life.” Bonuses from interactive shows, character encounters and attractions for the whole family are part of the park’s concept.

This new park could make the Disney World-Universal debate even tougher than it already is.

In which Texas city will the new Universal Park be located?

The new park, being purchased on 97 acres of land, will be located in Frisco, Texas. The city in northern Texas has around 210,000 inhabitants and is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.

Some may be wondering why Frisco was the choice for this new park over its typical Florida or California locations. Universal credits the choice to Frisco’s burgeoning population and its ability to “attract business to the area.”

“We believe North Texas is the perfect place to open this unique family park as it continues to grow in popularity in this part of the state,” said Page Thompson, president of New Ventures at Universal Parks & Resorts, in a statement.
