Universal Frisco Park’s Business Impact Discussed at Forum

Universal Parks & Resorts will build a new, immersive theme park in Frisco, Texas, featuring kid-friendly rides and a 300-room hotel according to an Orlando Park Stop article which reports, 


“Universal Parks & Resorts have announced that a brand new theme park is being built in Frisco, Texas—but it will be unlike any of their existing parks. This new destination will feature kid-friendly rides set within immersive lands, as well as a 300-room hotel.


Thanks to some newly released details we already have some specifics on what it will feature, and more importantly, what it won’t. Let’s check in on this unique project in today’s news update. See the video version of this story below for additional visuals.”


Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney has provided more details about Universal Studios’ new theme park, including a 300-room hotel on 30 of the park’s 97 acres according to a Local Profile article. They say,


“Universal Studios’ announcement of a theme park in Frisco, Texas brought in more questions than answers. Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney recently shared everything that we know about the new park, including a hotel. 


In a Facebook post, Cheney compiled frequently asked questions and responses from residents, in order to clear up any confusion and answer as many questions as possible. The latest information released from the mayor was confirmation of a 300-room hotel that will be about three to five stories high. The hotel will take up 30 of the 97 acres of land. 


“For perspective, 97 acres is almost as big as Warren Sports Complex, which spans 105 acres,” Cheney wrote.”


Universal’s new Frisco park will be located in the Fields development, one-quarter the size of Universal’s other parks, and will feature kid-friendly rides. The city council has yet to vote.
