Plans Revealed for 'Epic Universe': the Country's First New Theme Park Since 2001
The Next Miami reports: "Universal’s Epic Universe will become the first major new theme park built in the U.S. since 2001, when Disney’s California Adventure was completed."
Universal is also lobbying to get a Virgin Trains USA station built near the park. Virgin Trains USA is expanding the train line formerly referred to as the Brightline into Orlando.
Virgin Trains is already planning a station near Walt Disney World in Orlando.
