Universal's Epic Universe News & General Discussion | Inside Universal Forums
  • As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact everywhere, we understand our users will have a lot of questions about how it affects the theme parks. We are entering unprecedented waters, and honestly, the answer is either "yea, probably", or "Too early to tell". We just don't know specifics until the theme parks give us an answer. At this time, we're asking to please leave the COVID talk to the appropriate COVID threads, and if something officially and specifically is impacted by a closure, then we can discuss it further in the respective threads. Thank you!

If all that is said in that Podcast about SNW is true, its going to be very easy to spend an entire day in there depending on how big the actual play areas are. 4 potential attractions, dining, interactivity EVERYWHERE. Im already planning for my first day on my Epic Universe trip to be spent solely in Nintendo :)

Saw Alicia/TPShark’s podcast and found the multi level land thing interesting. Looking at the art, looks like Frankenstein Land is multilevel too :)
So the levels are staying? Already very noticeable, but I wasn't sure if it was a trick to store dirt while they built retention ponds or something. There are some fairly tall areas.

Looks like you walk uphill(stairs?) to the windmill and then can turn right onto the second level of the land, and looks to me like the ride exits onto the lower level (where we thought that the ride entrance was originally)

Also worried about kinetic energy in the land. Maybe the windmill is gonna spin?

I didn't see this posted so...just to let people know it looks like Face recognition is 100% coming to this park..From CNBC on 19 November
Facial recognition is our one-stop for everything we do: Universal Parks
Seeing that, and I decided to actually put up a topic dedicated towards this; as this should be something..to think about for the future of Universal's parks just in general. Regardless if Orlando and Beijing are going to be well, for a manner of speaking, the guinea-pigs of facial recognition..
