Universal Parks & Resorts has announced a new concept for a theme park experience that will be coming to Frisco, Texas. This new concept is aimed at families with young children. Universal released a brief description of it along with concept art via social media today. The concept art shows water attractions, spinning rides, and other attractions.
“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 fun food and beverage venues. Although smaller in size, it will still carry the same quality as Universal’s other larger resort destinations,” Universal said in a release.
The park will be 97-acres and include four or five different lands. There will also be a 300 room hotel. Universal Parks and Resorts President of New Ventures Page Thompson shared that the lands haven’t been decided on yet, however there are a lot of possibilities. “Trolls, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, Minions, Curious George, Where’s Waldo, a lot of characters people love,” Thompson said.
