Universal Orlando Resort is constantly evolving. Something new is always being announced or built. Keep check on this page to learn about upcoming attractions as they are announced.
The Toothsome Chocolate emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen
The former NBA City restaurant in Universal CityWalk closed in 2015. It was replaced with a new restaurant known as the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen. This fun new dining option is a themed restaurant designed to embody a 19th century Steampunk-era chocolate factory.
Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen is a full-service restaurant with an exceptionally large menu featuring all-day-brunch and interesting takes on classic dishes like steak, seafood and pasta. Some of the other entrée offerings include salads, sandwiches, and gourmet burgers.
But the real highlight of the menu is the huge selection of gourmet-level chocolates, desserts, and ice cream treats. Expect very fancy sundaes and artisan milkshakes with names like Chocolate x5, Bacon Brittle, Espresso Buzzzz, and Red Velvet. Toothsome visitors will be able to watch some of these items being prepared and can even take home tasty souvenirs from the restaurant's attached retail outlet.
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon was announced on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (by Jimmy Fallon himself) on October 27, 2015. This ride replaced Twister…Ride It Out, which closed in November of 2015.
Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon was inspired by the celebrity race segment on The Tonight Show. The ride's premise makes guests the audience of a very special Tonight Show taping.
The experience starts with a visit to a replica of Studio 6B where The Tonight Show is filmed. Jimmy Fallon then challenges guests to a race through New York City. Once on the ride, guests will soar over streets, subway tunnels, skyscrapers, and NYC landmarks. Read more about Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.
In May of 2015, Universal Orlando Resort announced the addition of a third park known as Volcano Bay. They are calling it a water theme park rather than just a water park due to the immersive environment.
A huge volcano serves as the centerpiece for Volcano Bay. The volcano is surrounded by lush tropical plants, water, and a beach.
Universal created ''radically innovative, thrilling attractions'' and opportunities for "peaceful moments of relaxation" at Volcano Bay.
Volcano Bay is on the Universal Orlando Resort property next to Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Some of the rooms at Cabana Bay have a view of the new Volcano Bay Park.
