Universal Parks & Resorts announced a unique theme park specifically designed to inspire fun for families with young children. The new park concept, set in a green landscape and featuring immersive themed lands, celebrates Universal’s brand of entertainment and innovation and brings to life its characters and stories.
The proposed park will be designed to be more intimate and engaging for younger audiences and will be sized for a regional audience. It will be full of family-friendly attractions, interactive and playful shows, character meet-and-greets, unique merchandise and food and beverage venues. Although smaller in size, the company promises it will still carry the same quality as Universal’s other larger resort destinations.
Part of 97 acres of land recently purchased by the company, the proposed park also has plans for an adjacent themed hotel and room for expansion. The entire area is intended to have a completely different look, feel and scale than Universal’s existing parks and will appeal to a new audience for the brand.
The proposed location for the new concept is ideally situated east of the Dallas North Tollway and north of Panther Creek Parkway.
“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with the city of Frisco and Mayor Cheney as we work to bring this innovative, new concept to life designed specifically for a younger generation of Universal fans,” said Page Thompson, President, New Ventures, Universal Parks & Resorts. “We think North Texas is the perfect place to launch this unique park for families given its growing popularity within this part of the country.”
More details about the project will be revealed over time.
