The latest theme park will be built on everything that the company has done and will go on to become the most innovative and immersive theme parks they have ever built.

Universal Orlando presently has 25,000 employees and will employ an extra 14,000 members as the part of Epic Universe, including professionals in the fields of culinary, technical and other specific subjects.
