Although Universal Orlando already has three theme parks in the resort, the fourth park, Epic Universe, has grand plans for the future including lands built around Universal’s Dark Universe, Super Nintendo World, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic. Today, Universal Orlando shared the first look at the fourth major land in Epic Universe: How To Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk.

Set between the second and third movies in the How to Train Your Dragon series, Isle of Berk will be an immersive experience that allows visitors to go through Viking Training Camp and even lets fans meet and greet Hiccup and his iconic dragon, Toothless.

Universal’s announcement video included an early look at several of the attractions in Isle of Berk, including the family coaster, Hiccup’s Wing Gliders, and Dragon Racer’s Rally, which puts guests in control of how fast they’re going to spin and how long they’re going to be upside down.

Additionally, there is a water-based attraction called Fyre Drill, in which guests will ride in boats armed with water cannons to practice putting out fires. Beyond the rides, perhaps the most intriguing addition is the live-action stage show, The Untrainable Dragon, which is being adapted from a similar play that originated at Universal Beijing Resort. The Untrainable Dragon will feature the characters from the films and elaborate fire-breathing dragons on stage.

Universal Orlando hasn’t set a specific date for Epic Universe yet, but the new theme park is expected to open in 2025.
