  • Dark Universe Details, Pride Nite, and CommuniCore Plaza

    24 JUN 2024 · Universal Orlando Resort unveiled details about Dark Universe, one of the worlds coming to Universal Epic Universe in 2025. Dark Universe will feature a dark ride (Monsters Unchained: The Frankenstein Experiment), a spinning family coaster (Curse of the Werewolf), a Monster Makeup Experience, character meet and greets, dining, and shopping. As the only ‘non-IP’ area at Epic Universe, we think Dark Universe caters to a niche market but also holds the most potential for future extension. Plus, how Disney empowered the guests and cast during their Pride Nite events and why CommuniCore offers essential creature comforts.
