Universal Orlando has unveiled new details about the experiences and attractions coming to the Universal Epic Universe theme park, set to open in 2025. Among the five worlds featured at the new theme park is How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk, inspired by DreamWorks Animation’s trilogy How to Train Your Dragon.

Developed in partnership with Universal Creative, DreamWorks Animation, and Universal Pictures, How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk will immerse guests in the rugged, rocky world where Vikings and dragons coexist. The themed world will feature hand-carved structures, lush landscapes, and rolling hills.
