Visitors can also ride the constellations on Constellation Carousel and enjoy unique dining.


Epic Universe will also feature a new hotel located inside the park, offering guests easy access to like never before. The Universal Helios Grand Hotel offers a fantastical world and luxurious accommodations for travelers.
