Universal Parks and Resorts has announced a theme park for families in Frisco, Texas, which is one of the fastest-growing cities in the US, and will sit on close to one-hundred acres and have an on-site 300-room hotel according to a Newsbreak article. They say,
“In 1990, Frisco had a population of 6,517. That ranked 3,399 in the US at the time.
Now Frisco will be the future home to a Universal Park Studios theme park.
The announcement is the latest development for the burgeoning Texan city that continues to be one of the fastest-growing in the country. The park will sit on close to one-hundred acres and have an on-site 300-room hotel.
With currently five parks internationally in Universal’s portfolio, being home to the sixth is a monumental feat and yet another indication of the belief that this Dallas-Fort Worth suburb will continue to expand at a feverish pace.
The new theme park will have a unique look, feel and scale than existing parks, with an artist’s rendering presented, and CEO Mark Woodbury expressing hope to bring the attraction to the city according to a Frisco Enterprise article. They say,
“”The entire area is intended to have a completely different look, feel and scale than Universal’s existing parks and will appeal to a new audience for the brand,” the press release stated.
Wednesday’s announcement included the presentation of an artist’s rendering for what the park could look like.
“We have a portfolio of terrific attractions that appeal to young families around the world, and we had an idea to bring all of those together and create a destination that is specifically designed to appeal to families with young children,” said Mark Woodbury, chairman and chief executive officer of Universal Parks and Resorts. “And that’s what we see in this illustration now, and that’s what we hope to bring to Frisco.”
The park, which will be smaller in size compared to other Universal parks, will feature a variety of family-friendly attractions, interactive and playful shows, character meet and greets, unique merchandise, and fun food and beverage venues. An opening date for the park has yet to be announced.
