Universal Epic Universe Lands for Kids

Any theme park in Orlando is going to appeal to adults and children. Universal Epic Universe does have a decidedly mature, upscale feel by the looks of it, but younger kids and families are still in for a treat.

Super Nintendo World

Parents just may enjoy this land most of all because their kids will get to experience something many of us older parents absolutely loved when we were kids: Nintendo! Super Nintendo World at Epic Universe will surely be a hit with families.

You can expect two great rides, that already have been proven at Universal Studios Hollywood in California. And naturally, Super Nintendo World originally debuted in Japan.

Super Nintendo World in Orlando will surely impress everyone. A Mario Kart themed ride and a slow moving ride with Yoshi are said to arrive here just like the previous versions of Super Nintendo World. But hang onto your banana peels because Orlando’s version may also receive a Donkey Kong themed ride!

How to Train Your Dragon: Isle of Berk

Many fans who have been watching the construction of Epic Universe have said they feel the How to Train Your Dragon land might just be the breakaway hit of the park.

When your kids enter this land, themed after the Ise of Berk, they will feel the call to adventure. Two towers are already erected in this land, and a Viking ship and flying arm ride can already be seen too.

But the greatest attraction of this How to Train Your Dragon land will be the winding roller coaster that soars through half of the land. There is said to be a restaurant, interactive boat ride, stage show, and a character meet and greet too!

And for the littlest Vikings who aren’t ready to soar with a dragon just yet there will be a play area near the coaster!

Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Ministry of Magic

The boy who lived breathed new life into Universal Orlando when the Wizading World of Harry Potter debuted so many years ago. And while we love visiting Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade Village, soon it will be time to visit the Ministry of Magic.

This new Harry Potter land at Epic Universe may be the most grown-up area for the Wizarding World. There is said to be a high tech ride set inside the Ministry of Magic, a battle experience. And a live show based on the Fantastic Beast movies.

You can expect many British and French influences in this land including a cafe and bakery.
