Your guide to Epic Universe's Dark Universe

Universal revealed the details of Dark Universe, one of the lands set for Epic Universe, the new park set to open in Orlando in 2025. Dracula, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Bride of Frankenstein and more meet new characters in this horror-inspired land.

It will still offer a family-friendly atmosphere. Darkmoor, a village within Dark Universe, is filled with characters and subjects of Frankenstein’s experiments.

The Rides

Monsters Unchained: The Frankenstein Experiment takes guests deep into the catacombs of Frankenstein Manor, where Dr. Victoria Frankenstein conducts her twisted experiments.

In a vain display of her genius, she invites guests into her laboratory to witness a demonstration of her ability to control monsters – but her plans go awry when her attempts to control the most dangerous of monsters, Dracula, fails, unleashing a horde of enraged monsters.

Guests are then thrust into an intense ride through the darkness as they try to evade the grasps of The Wolf Man, The Mummy, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, the Brides of Dracula and others.

In Curse of the Werewolf, guests will encounter a spinning family coaster inspired by “The Wolf Man.”

Entering The Guild of Mystics guests will be greeted by the Maleva, the guild’s all-knowing seer and leader, who warns them that they bear the mark of the werewolf. Guests then board a wagon and venture into the forest, racing to escape the werewolves before they become one themselves.

The Entertainment

Guests of all ages can don elaborate face paint and temporary tattoos at  Monster Makeup Experience. Monster makers have converted Dr. Pretorius’ infamous old lab into a parlor and skilled artisans use their talents to transform guests into a likeness of their favorite Universal Monsters.

Everyone from kids to adults can also meet the monsters in a family-friendly meet-and-greet experience.
