    With an amazing 2017 behind us—did someone say Universal’s Volcano Bay AND Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon AND an entirely new Holidays?—there’s no slowing down in 2018. From grand openings to upcoming announcements, here’s a quick look ahead at what you can expect from Universal Orlando Resort.

    Fast & Furious – Supercharged

    Opening: Spring


    The latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise isn’t in your local cinemas or streaming on your favorite device. It’s big, bold and right here at Universal Studios Florida. Your attendees will jump in alongside their favorite Fast characters in a crazy chase scene that feels like it’s right out of the movies. The attraction is also filled with cars and props from the movies, making this the attraction the perfect addition to any Universal Studios Florida event.

    Universal’s Aventura Hotel

    Opening: August


    If you’re looking for modern, sleek and perfectly-priced accommodations for your rooms-only program, look no further. With 600 rooms, our sixth hotel welcomes guests this August. You can already block rooms and start dreaming about the views out of the floor-to-ceiling windows, the sparkling pool and our first rooftop bar.

    Perched 17 stories up in the air, guests will enjoy striking, panoramic views of all three theme parks. They’ll be able to look out over the iconic Hogwarts Castle, the twists and turns of Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster, and the tropical oasis of Universal’s Volcano Bay.


    Opening: Mid-November


    Last year, Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter meant special enhancements to events in Hogsmeade. All-new festive décor, special entertainment, and a stunning projection show that wrapped Hogwarts castle in spectacular holiday spirit made for one-of-a-kind events filled with magic and excitement.

    Well, it’s all coming back again this year for more holiday merriment. Consider your holiday event plans done.

    Crystal Ball Gazing

    While I can’t share details on things yet to be announced, you can expect to hear an announcement or two from us this year on things like:

    • The previously-announced ride replacing Dragon Challenge in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade
    • An additional projection mapping experience at Hogwarts castle
    • Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular being replaced
    • Something new going in where Terminator 2: 3D was
    • Our expanding hotel collection
    • The continued global expansion of our partnership with Nintendo. Our sister park in Japan has already broken ground on Super Mario World; I’m sure you can’t wait to hear what’s next.

    Whew! There’s a lot to look forward to in 2018, that’s for sure.
